Last week, Twitter user @arrrrrleth said she was shopping in an L.A. thrift store with her cousin when they came across a highlighter-colored jacket.

“My cousin found a jacket and decided to buy it inside of it was a note,” she wrote on Twitter, along with a photo of the jacket and a note that reads, “Stay warm, Billie!” next to the social media handle for a person named “Donnie,” @Donnie_Gloede.

“I found the guys Instagram and there’s a pic of him giving the jacket to Billie. He gave.. this jacket… TO BILLIE EILISH,” arrrrrleth tweeted.

The fan’s Instagram account contains photos of him with Eilish at a meet-and-greet. And sure enough, there are photos of him gifting her the same jacket. The fan, named Donnie Gloede, saw arrrrrleth’s tweets.

“:O that’s me!!! @billieeilish I’m sad to see the jacket never kept you warm,” Gloede responded.

Eilish hasn’t responded to the tweets, but we assume she wasn’t being a “bad guy” when she gave the jacket away.
