A Twitter user posted a screengrab of a message sent to her by an ex-partner ahead of his wedding day – but the content was far from what you might anticipate. Alexsa Sanchez Aguilar hadn’t expected to hear from her old boyfriend in the first place, of course, but she was beyond surprised by what he had to say. And what’s more, the message had gone viral within days – triggering some sharply contrasting reactions on the internet.

Alexsa Sanchez Aguilar glanced at her phone as a message came in. The SMS displaying on the iPhone was a little unusual. It read: “Is this still Alexsa’s number?” Somewhat tentatively, the young woman responded in a way many people would in the same circumstances. “Um, yes…who’s this?” she asked. And the reply left her shocked.
