Want to dump your other half but have no idea how to do it? Why not crop them out of a picture and post it on Instagram? Because that's what young people are doing these days.

This week, US-based Instagrammer @cjkarl11 dumped his girlfriend using the nifty crop tool and repurposing the #TransformationTuesday hashtag a social tool normally reserved for those sharing before-and-after shot of their gym bod.

His before pic? He and his girlf looking all loved up and happy. His after snap? The same shot but with his now ex-girlfriend totally cropped out. Ouch!

But that's not the worst part. The girl decided to make things worse by commenting: "Is this your way of breaking up with me?" Talk about airing your dirty laundry in public guys. Jeez! AKA the news site for men (or should that be bros?) which refers to vaginas as "queef pouches" and gives advices to bros who intentionally give girls the clap were quick to share their thoughts on the dumping.


It's times like this we count our lucky stars Instagram did not exist when we were teenagers. #Phew! And that's coming from a team of people who've been dumped by text, phone and the old "Whatshisname went from being in a relationship to single" on Facebook.
