We’re sorry to be the ones to break it to you, but Jesus Christ died – and Twitter just wants you to know what happens in the Bible for some weird reason.
“Jesus DIED” – yes, with the all-caps on “died” for dramatic effect – trended on the social media platform on Wednesday, with the reason for the phrase going viral appearing to be because of a tweet from YouTuber and Twitch streamer One Topic At A Time.
Penning a tweet on Tuesday evening, the creator wrote: “Type ‘Jesus DIED for my sin of’ and let your keyboard expose you.”
So rather than being an explanation of the Bible story and how he was crucified on a giant wooden cross, it was – like many things on the internet – created from a silly Twitter challenge.
And while One Topic At A Time’s post has received more than 712 replies at the time of writing, it found a new life a day later, when more people were tweeting the phrase and wondering where the hell – sorry, heck – it came from.
\u201cJesus died is trending, so this is your reminder that Jesus died because he was a non-white man whose government assassinated him.\u201d
