Ariana Grande's new single has inspired the wildest challenge and it involves texting...

Ariana Grande is one of the most prolific artists in the music industry right now. Over the course of the past 10 months, she's released six hit singles (from 'no tears left to cry' to 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored', they all slap) and two number 1 albums (sweetener and thank u, next). With that in mind, it's no wonder that she's inspired multiple memes. And now she's responsible for a new viral challenge.

QUIZ: Are you love, patience or pain in 'thank u, next'?

It is no secret that internet loves a good text challenge. In the past few weeks alone, we have been blessed with some of the wildest text challenges in recent history. First things first, there was the "I want a baby" challenge, then there was the "would you still love me if I had no skin" challenge and now there is the "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" challenge and it's messy AF.

The challenge takes inspiration from Ariana Grande's latest single in which she encourages a guy she is attracted to to break up with his girlfriend because she is, you guessed it, bored. It's tongue-in-cheek and hilarious but it's now taken on a very real form in a new viral challenge in which people text people who they think are sketchy: "break up with you girlfriend, i'm bored".

It was all started by Twitter user @holy_schnitt shortly after the song came out. She tweeted: "ok ladies everyone text a guy you think is shady and say “break up with your girlfriend, I’m bored” and reply with a screenshot of his response". Within a few hours, it had thousands of replies and the results are hilarious and heartbreaking. Check out the most shocking ones below.

The tweet that launched a thousand replies.


Some guys are out here being straight up trash.

The nerve!

A skeezy reply if ever there were one.

I can't.

Some are clocking the reference and yet...


One or two guys are getting into specifics.


Not sure how this guy is still in a relationship.

Nine lives.

There's a flaw to the system though.

Oh boy.

And it obviously happened.


Multiple times.


Things actually got pretty deep.

You're insecure, don't know what for.

This took and unexpected turn.


Not as unexpected as this though.

Um. Okay.

People are getting caught in their lies.

No comment.

The fan fiction jumped out.

Who are these people?

I have a lot of questions.

Are these people related?

And last but not least a keeper.


What do you think? Are you up for the challenge?
