The day of reckoning has come, Forever 21 has finally gone out of business after years of being the internet’s punching bag. Where else are we possibly going to find that crop top that said “California dreamin'” and “yaaas tacos” on it?
Maybe you remember a time when they actually had nice clothing, but you’re probably still scarred from the time last year you pulled a black hoodie out of the rack and saw “tired” written on the back. Here are some tweets that really went in at the news and dragged the store within an inch of its fading life.
If Only You Bought That Romper… You Could’ve Saved It
If all the girls who posted pictures of themselves hanging out in the Forever 21 change rooms actually bought the stuff they tried on then we wouldn’t be in this predicament. Honestly though, I wouldn’t wish a hot Cheetos band T-shirt on my worst enemy.
*Bashes Store* *Is First In Line At Sale*
We’ve put in serious work on the internet for years trying to make Forever 21 understand that it is just not okay to be ruining denim jackets with weird patches of soda and fries. That won’t stop us from hittin’ that sale though.
Since We’re Already Here Telling The Truth, Let’s Talk About The Avocado Thing
Forever 21, you’re welcome for all this quality problem solving we’re out here doing for you. We have the answers to why you went under and it’s so simple. All you have to do is not make clothes we want to set on fire because everything can’t just be a pajama shirt.
*Forever 21 Credit Card Holders Side Eye Aggressively*
I mean, here’s a positive about Forever 21 going under: we can no longer run ourselves into debt with their credit cards. Our closets and our bank accounts can finally breathe, and oh my God hold hands, everyone, because it is time to heal.
The New Uniform We’re All Gonna Be Wearing
Can we just all agree that we’re not going to lie about exactly where we’re going to be doing our shopping for the next little while? Listen, I’m not above any of the stuff there if it means I’m getting it on the dime. I’ll even wear the denim choker thing if it means I’m getting it for six cents.
The Hero Who Tried To Stop The Madness
We appreciate the struggle that this girl went through to try and save the store, but mama it is just too late for that now. One of the stages of grief is accepting that it’s over, so girl let it go and stop letting the weird smelly fast-fashion denim hurt you and your thighs.
Forever 21 Really Letting Down The Thirsty Men In Her DMs
If only Forever 21 would’ve listened to the cries of the thirsty men in her DMs, maybe things would’ve gone differently. She should’ve let them treat her like the “baby girl princess” they wanted to.
The True Culprit Was Always The “Yaasss Tacos”
Forever 21 should’ve thrown in the towel the minute they let this monster leave the design room and make it to the stores. No matter what financial experts say about “expansion being too quick” or “too much stock” we know the true culprit and it smells like the knock-off Nirvana teen spirit shirts they were selling.
They Collaborated With US Postal Service And We’re Acting Like We’re Shocked They Went Under
The collab with USPS was a major cry for help and we just ignored that. This was Forever 21 reaching out to the government for a little paycheck assistance and we just thought it was bad fashion. We let them go in their time of need, and we’re kind of sorry.
*Sips Tea At What Can Only Be Karma*
If you’re out here charging $35 for a sweater that’s made of literal twine you found in your garage, you’ve got to understand that karma might get you back for that. Forever 21 should’ve read a little more daily horoscopes and practiced a little more kindness if they wanted to live.
Guess We Can’t Be 21 Forever Now
The irony of this whole thing is that this means nobody can be 21 forever anymore. We’re all destined to hit 22 and onwards and we’re scared without our ancient temple in the mall to guide us through the adulting phase. Thank God the Cinnabon is still there. That’s the only thing that’s keeping us sane now.
They Should’ve Gotten A Drive-Thru For Their Crop Tops
We love a good drive-thru but it can’t work miracles on a company unwilling to change. You might remember this mall driver… too bad the stores didn’t take his helpful business advice and install a drive-thru.
Excuse Me While I Up My Credit Limit For The Sale
We’re all so amped to get some new shirts that we would’ve never otherwise bought that we’re pre-gaming for the event. We’re getting our reusable bags in order, getting a little wine flowing, and upping our credit card limits because this is like black Friday come early baby.
Justice Stans Cover Your Eyes
We were all primed to shop at Forever 21 from a young age, let’s be real. Justice got us nice and ready to spend ours or our mom’s coin on a T-shirt with something we don’t care about on it. We were born into this cursed world and we’re living through it as it gets reborn.
What We Really All Thought When We Heard The News
The Forever 21 going out of business sale means great things for our wallets because now we can dress in stuff we don’t want to wear for only $0.35 a shirt. Don’t you feel happy, fulfilled, and like a real adult? No? Well go to their sale section and try again until you do.
Big Numbers For A Sweater Made Of Three Pieces Of Cotton
There must be a misprint on the tag because if Forever 21 is really out here charging rent money for a sweater, we’re going to feel all types of ways about it. Maybe we’ve found it, the one sweater that made an entire generation hate the store but still shop there.
Foolish Woman Should Know Better Than Going To Forever 21’s Basic Section For… Basics
Until you’ve walked into Forever 21 looking for something plain and simple, you’ve haven’t faced an impossible task. It’s a big ask to find a plain white or black t-shirt and none of us mortals can do it. It’s the forbidden fruit that we’re never going to eat.
The Changing Rooms Really Were That Kind Of Humbling Experience
Sure, the model looked cute in that wide-legged orange romper and it feels good when you’re trying it on, but the moment you look in the mirror you better be bracing yourself because you and the garment definitely look insane. Maybe it’s the lightning, but it’s probably because it’s a cursed place.
The Clearance Section Made Women And Men
Never ask anyone to grab you something from the clearance section unless you never want to see them again. They’re going to get lost and die among all the pairs of jelly sandals on the ground and the mountain of clothing that the employees just threw back there.
Who Would’ve Thought Ariana Was The Hero We Deserved In These Dark Times
When Ariana Grande sued Forever 21 for using a model who looked like her, we all thought that that would be drama that would just blow over. What we didn’t expect was that Ariana would be the angel to lead us through these dark times.
