The Bahamas is a chain of islands in the Caribbean that has become one of the hottest tourist destinations in the universe—and for a good reason. It's a tiny slice of tropical paradise, and one main feature has people booking flights time and time again.
Looking for crystal-clear, blue water? The Bahamas provides some of the most beautiful ocean water you can lay your eyes upon, and you may even find some adorable pigs wading in the dazzling waves. If these swimming pigs aren't enough to make you dive in, I don't know what will. The Bahamas is literally second to none.
3. The East Coast Of The U.S. Has Some Sun And Sand
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is a rather popular beach destination that's close to home. Just a drive or short flight away, the family-friendly destination of Myrtle Beach provides fun and sun —and some people even call it home. Although it can make for a nice getaway, it's no Caribbean island. One woman seemed to have it confused, and the Internet wasn't having it.
A young woman named Mo Mullikin shared a video on Twitter of clear, blue ocean water, and she captioned it "Myrtle Beach, SC" with a heart-eyes emoji. It appears that Mo captured the beauty of the Southern beach town, and naturally, Twitter responded. It was definitely not the type of attention this woman was looking for.
Mo's tweeted video starting garnering a bit of viral attention, and Twitter's reaction was anything but forgiving. Trying the trick the internet is literally impossible — as we all know — and no one was believing that the water at Myrtle Beach is nearly as breathtaking. It wasn't long before Twitter users began calling her out.
Twitter user Nana Cate replies to Mo's video, stating, "this is the Bahamas." Mo is quick to respond, "umm no? It's Myrtle Beach. Didn't you read my caption?" This was certainly not the end of this embarrassing debate--because the Internet can never let anything go.
Twitter user Nana Cate reveals that she has seen the video long before Mo decided to share it. The video was originally posted by Twitter user @VotorioA, and it was recorded on a beach in the Bahamas--clearly. It is actually captioned, "crystal clear water in #Bahamas," making Mo look even more ridiculous.
Twitter users began sharing their own interpretations of Myrtle Beach's less than appetizing beach water. King Johnsdaman shared this picture of a bag of murky ocean water and stated, "here you go I think you meant this picture." This humurous tweet was just the beginning.
Mo literally started a tsunami of jokes, with unfortunately she became the brunt of. A Twitter user named Alyssa even went as far as photoshop a plethoera of trash into a screenshot of the video. She tweeted "fixed it for you" at Mo, and people can't handle it. Finally, Mo decided to explain herself.
Mo Mullikin tweeted that she was joking around when she reposted the video, and she is a resident of Myrtle Beach so she is aware the beach is no where near this level of paradise. It may have been a better idea to cut her losses, because Twitter continued to drag her through the mud.
Mo's final attempt to save herself from Internet-shaming was useless at best. One Twitter user even told her, "lmao stop replying once you get caught." This is a good piece of advice, especially when your joke completely turns on you—and causes you a sea of troubles.
All of Twitter agreed that Mo's joke left much to be desired. A more direct punchline would have saved her, and even get her a few chuckles. A more well thoughout out tweet could have been smooth-sailing, but this one definitely couldn't stay afloat.
Twitter user Nasty_ clapped back, stating, "no, jokes are funny." That one has to sting a little, but hopefully, Mo takes this as a lesson learned. The Internet is no place to joke around unless you have the facts to back it up. Hook, line, and sinker.
As Mo Mullikin has learned, people know what Caribbean paradise looks like. Sorry Myrtle Beach, but you have nothing on the sparkling waters of the Bahamas. This is just a fact of life—and it's time you've come to accept it.
Twitter can be a tough nut to crack, especially for those attempting to try their luck at some comedy. Never try to lie either, because the Internet knows everything, and you will sink fast. Better luck next time, Mo.
