About

What Are We Doing To Our Beautiful Queens? is a copypasta inspired by a Kevin Durant tweet in which the NBA star bemoaned beauty standards that drive some women to radical plastic surgery. Since Durant tweeted the phrase in 2014, it has often been used to joke about people of all genders undergoing plastic surgery.

Origin

On August 29th, 2014, Kevin Durant tweeted about apparently discovering that some women remove their bottom two ribs in order to achieve a skinny waist. After Twitter user Kaylana Reese confirmed that the procedure did exist, Durant tweeted,[1] "I'm gonna go outside and light myself on fire. What are we doing to our beautiful queens." The tweet gained over 3,500 retweets and 5,800 likes in nine years (shown below).
