45-Year-Old Man's Reaction to Band-Aid That Matches His Skin Tone Is Too Pure


A 45-year-old man's reaction to the typically mundane act of putting on a bandage has gone viral. Twitter user Dominique Apollon, the VP of Research for racial justice at Race Forward, took to Twitter to share the first time he'd seen a bandage that matched his skin tome. 

"It's taken me 45 trips around the sun, Apollon wrote. "But for the first time in my life I know what it feels like to have a 'band-aid' in my own skin tone. You can barely even spot it in the first image. For real I'm holding back tears."

Apollon's tweet has since attracted over 500,000 likes and thousands of positive comments.
