This Teen Couple Joked About Buying A House Online And People Totally Tore Them To Shreds

They are now also a meme, because of course.

Joe O'Brien and Natalia Kaiser are a couple from Burleson, Texas. They met playing tennis in high school and have dated for almost two years, Natalia, 17, told BuzzFeed News.

Last week, the teens went on vacation with Joe's family to North Carolina to visit some of his relatives.

One day on the trip, Joe's brother and his girlfriend asked the couple if they would take a photo of them posing in front of Joe's aunt's house.

Natalia agreed, and she and Joe also took a photo in front of the house because they were matching that day.

"When I was looking through the photos of us I thought it was really cute, but weird that we were in front of a house," she said. "It reminded me of those posts where people tweet about buying a house."

So, she decided to tweet the photo out as a joke, pretending she and her boyfriend bought a house together.

Surprisingly, her tweet went viral. And for some reason, people were super pissed-off about it.

A lot of people thought the teens were serious, and were not nice about it in their responses.

And some commented on Those Damn Millennials.

"I'm sure mommy and daddy helped ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‘"

There was a lot of WELL ACTUALLY.

And some just straight insults. "I bet you guys are really weird," one person wrote.

Not everyone was mean though. Some people believed it and were impressed.

That's crazy ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ props to y'all https://t.co/4LLvrsG0qh

A lot of them made jokes about how broke they were compared to the alleged teen homeowners.

"When I was 17 I put $3 of gas in my car and tried to make it last a week."

The photo has now, for some reason, been turned into a meme.

We just bought our first house at the age of 17&16. So proud of how hard we worked these last few years to get it ๐Ÿ˜

So impress. Much house.

Um, what?

Natalia said she enjoyed reading the responses about people being broke, too.

"I struggle saving money too so we are all in the same boat," she said.

She added that she's been very surprised by all the responses to her joke, and everyone who took it so seriously.

"Of course my parents would never let me move in with my boyfriend at this age and there's no way we could afford an entire house," she said. "It has just gotten so much more attention than I anticipated."

In conclusion, this tweet:

@nataliamk8 Just shows how the internet can go off for no reason.
