Tajea-Jasmine Walton is a model on Instagram who also runs a publication for women of color called GRLY Magazine. She has a fair-sized following, but relatively small for Instagram.
But she's obviously gorgeous, and shares amazing pics:
So, people like her.
On Twitter, Walton shared a screenshot of direct message she received from a stranger on Instagram with a pretty shocking request:
The message was from a woman who says her boyfriend keeps saving pics of Walton and using them as screen savers. He also apparently talks about Walton a lot. The messenger asks that Walton block her boyfriend on social media so he can't see her anymore. She signs off with some interesting words:
Walton could not believe that this woman was only blaming her for her relationship problems:
Walton told Buzzfeed that though she gets the occasional message, this was by far the weirdest.
"I didn't respond," she said. "I honestly just read it and blocked them both. There wasn't any reason to go back and forth. I have my own boyfriend, and at the end of the day, there's nothing I could do about him being oddly obsessed with me."
That's a mature response, but everyone on Twitter reacted with the shock this message deserved:
i feel like the "itll be a problem" is more that she gon have to fight her man and she doesnt wanna have to do that— dm me pics of ur pets (@bloodylemonade) April 4, 2018
I tried to think of it your way too at first. But if she meant it your way, she should have added “it’ll be a problem [for him]” at the end. And that dry ass “good day” at the end let it be known she was NOT coming to her respectfully as she said. 😂 That was def a threat to her.— Montoya (@DearMontoya) April 4, 2018
Everyone has suggestions for how Walton should have responded:
I hope you responded saying "Dear Bird, stay out of my messages and talk to your man..."— Serious Black (@NicT10) April 4, 2018
But most were wondering if it's really worth it to hang onto a guy who is doing this so blatantly in front of you anyway?

How dare you have your pictures posted on this man's screensavers on multiple devices & you are being brought up in conversation. Have you no shame? he has someone, make yourself ugly so his girl can be happy, it's the only way 🤣— Carson Palmher (@Work_Cooling) April 4, 2018
Walton has moved on to do her usual thing of looking great:
I guess everyone got what they wanted, but I almost feel bad for the lady who got to keep her boyfriend.
