#StraightsBreakTheInternet, however, can just go away.

In response to the news of the mass murder at gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, hundreds of LGBT people have been posting pictures of their lovely faces and messages of support for one another using the hashtag #GaysBreakTheInternet


The hashtag began trending early Monday morning alongside #PrayforOrlando and #OrlandoUnited as part of an outpouring of support for the victims of the Orlando tragedy and the LGBT community.


Some people even used the tag to come out to friends and family.

In response to the hashtag, which has been trending most of the day, some users took to social media to use the hashtag #StraightsBreakTheInternet.

Fortunately, the #StraightsBreakTheInternet tag is mostly people mocking it at this point.


And like one person so succinctly tweeted:

At least 50 people have died and 53 have been injured.
