Rapper Cardi B shocked fans when she posted on her Instagram page that after over a year of marriage, she and husband Offset, 1/3 of the rap trio Migos, were going their separate ways.
Under the post, soon-to-be ex-husband Offset simply commented, "Y'all won."
It didn't take long before Black Twitter turned the two-word response into the joke of the week.
One user couldn't help but attribute the phrase to activist DeRay McKesson's now-viral photo of him posing without his iconic Patagonia blue vest.

Another couldn't help but wonder what exactly we ever did.
But hey, at least we all now have a scapegoat for when we eff up: y'all.
Who is y’all? What did we do lol https://t.co/vxDpew2hJK— philip lewis (@Phil_Lewis_) December 5, 2018

“Y’all won” is my new response, when I get caught up in my bullshitting and have to deal with the consequences.— Baeonetta (@revalanche) December 5, 2018
Someone went ahead and turned "Ya'll won" into Offset's soon-to-be-released single with a famous feature.

For members of the Blavity fam gearing up for finals, some of y'all can relate to this.
The news of the breakup doesn't come as a shock to most since it was rumored well before the Bronx-born rapper and "Stir Fry" lyricist tied the knot that he had been unfaithful to his girl. Therefore, "y'all won" is incorrect given no one on Al Gore's internet told Offset to go out and cheat on his then-fiancée.

Offset talking about “y’all won” like we made him go out and cheat.. y’all do anything but take accountability— Landon Romano (@landonromano) December 5, 2018
On the bright side, it looks like the online community is sticking by Cardi's side, sending her positive thoughts and already readying themselves for her comeback.
I’m praying for Cardi tho. She just had a baby 5 months ago and she was just dealing with depression. I know it wasn’t easy to let go of him and her marriage but she did. I’m proud of her. Her growth in the past months let’s me know she’ll bounce back.— ∞ (@eyelandgyal) December 5, 2018
