A Texas Twitter Showdown
A Texas teenager, Olivia Julianna, 18, engaged in a fiery Twitter exchange with a Republican congressional candidate over the state’s abortion ban.
Abortion Ban Sparks Teens Outrage
The TikTok video starts with Julianna saying that she had just “found out her bodily autonomy had been taken away from her in the state of Texas,” hinting at the recent anti-abortion laws.
Speaking Truth to Power
Julianna’s tweet called out Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s priorities, suggesting that he should focus more on the power grid crisis than women’s reproductive rights.
Hilarious Tweet Unveiled
The Tweet read, ”If only Gregg Abbott spent as much time regulating the energy grid as he did regulating my uterus.”
Dark Times in Texas
She then explained that her tweet was about the power shortages recently, “If you don’t know, the energy grid here in Texas is a real issue that’s why we had those power shortages in February.”
Republican Candidate Claps Back
Samuel Williams, a Republican congressional candidate, responded by criticising Julianna, using the term “uniformed liberal” instead of “uninformed,” before arguing the grid had nothing to do with Gregg Abbot.
A Correction With Class
Julianna swiftly corrected Williams’ terminology and educated him on who really has control over the grid before finishing the statement with, “Worry about your research, not my uterus.”
Social Media Cheers On
People rallied behind Julianna’s response, celebrating her ability to stand up against fake news.
A Humiliating Spelling Mistake?
One Twitter user exclaimed, “UNIFORMED!?? PLEAAASSEEE.” In response to Williams’s failed attempt at an insult.
TikTok Goes Viral
Julianna took to TikTok to share her story and attracted a massive audience with over 200,000 views and 47,000 likes.
