Here’s Why You’re Seeing a Photo of a Red Bathing Suit Everywhere

Have you seen a bunch of photos of a woman in a red swimsuit every time you open Instagram? If so, you’re not alone. Simone Biles has too, for instance. When she posted on Twitter asking people to stop posting it, though, she got more than she bargained for…

So, what’s this picture for? Why are all those darned youths posting it on the social medias?

You can probably blame that chicken nugget boy. Once he found out it would cost him 18 million retweets to get free nuggets from Wendy’s for a year, he went on a quest to get the most-retweeted tweet ever. Now, social media is full of people asking their favorite brands and corporations how they can get in on that sweet action.

A California-based swimsuit company called Sunny Co Clothing decided that since free stuff in exchange for social media activity is trendy now, they’d just give a suit to everyone who posted a photo. They announced this:

The Teens are using social media — what else? — to express their aggravation:

Anyway, this is all annoying and everything, but if you want to get in on it, go ahead and repost the pic. We won’t laugh.
