About

“I Came Out to Have a Good Time and I’m Honestly Feeling So Attacked Right Now” is an expression used to sarcastically complain about being criticized or challenged. Although the quote originally appeared in a post by Tumblr user chardonnaymami, its source has been falsely attributed to a screenshot of a tweet supposedly posted by singer Nick Jonas of The Jonas Brothers.

Origin

On June 23rd, 2014, Tumblr[3] user chardonnaymami posted a transcript of a conversation she had with her mother in which she tries to explain her reason after being questioned for wanting to keep a bottle of Mai Tai cocktail syrup (shown below). In the following week, the post received more than 66,000 notes.



Disputed Origin

In Season 6 Episode 9 of the reality television show Ru Paul’s Drag Race, originally aired on April 14th, 2014, contestant Laganja Estranja makes a similar complaint about being attacked while arguing with drag performer Adore Delano (shown below). Many have raised her quote as a possible inspiration for Tumblr user chardonnaymami’s post but this was later denied by chardonnaymami in post about the quote’s origin on June 30th.[5]



Adore Delano: “I’m not attacking you!”
Laganja Estranja: “I feel very attacked!”

Tumblr user charliekellys[6] claimed that the meme was actually a paraphrase of a quote from the scene in 22 Jump Street where Jonah Hill is fighting Jillian Bell, and this theory seems to have spread quickly, but so far it remains unsubstantiated. Chardonnaymami vehemently denied[7] having even seen the film.

Spread

On June 26th, 2014, Tumblr[4] user Audize posted a transcript of a conversation with a cashier from a MAC Cosmetics retail store in which she responds with the same quote after being told how much her purchases will cost (shown below). Within 72 hours, the post accumulated upwards of 45,500 notes.



On the following day, Tumblr[1] user twerking-to-hell reblogged a post insulting the Jonas Brothers with the addition of what appeared to be a screenshot of a tweet by Nick Jonas complaining about feeling “attacked” (shown below). In the first 48 hours, the post gained over 84,000 notes. However, the validity of the screenshot has been disputed by some who claim there is no record that Jonas actually posted the tweet.



Also on June 27th, the @CommonGayTweets[2] Twitter feed posted a tweet referencing the quote (shown below).
