Brad, Angelina, and Jen: An Internet Meme Love Triangle

September 19th marks one of the worst divorces in Hollywood History: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  After being together for 12 years and only two years of marriage, the Brangelina couple finally called it quits this year.  It’s the divorce heard around the world, with everyone shocked and upset over the surprising news.  With this news comes a slew of questions we had to ask ourselves like, “how did things go so wrong? Is there such thing as a perfect marriage in Hollywood?  Does love even exist anymore?”.  In all honesty, what is life without Brangelina?!?

Yes, many people are rocked by the news and wondering how they will live without the Brangelina couple.  Once the new broke out on September 19th, the shit hit the fan on social media.  Audiences are reacting with the most relevant screencaps, including ones that involve Jennifer Aniston.  By the way, do you guys remember when Jen and Brad Pitt were a thing?

For those of you who were living under a rock during the early 2000s, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were one of the hottest couples of Hollywood.  Brad first met Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston in 1998 and decided to get married in 2000.  It was a rare Hollywood success for couple Brad and Jennifer, being married for 5 long years while being in show business.  Unfortunately, the couple broke it off in early 2005 and finalized their divorce in October.  Pitt started seeing Angelina Jolie while on the set for Mr. & Ms. Smith and the couple were seen together since.

Fast-forward 12 years later and the Brangelina dynasty is no more.  A flood of memes has been created by social media users, all expressing different outcomes of reacting to the news.  As I mentioned before, Jennifer Aniston became the focal point of the various memes created on the internet.  Some of them provide screencaps with Rachel Green from Friends.  The results are absolute GOLD.

In fact, along with the #Brangelina hashtag, Jennifer Aniston and #TeamJen also began trending worldwide.

Still, you can't expect the world NOT to be a little messy.
