Brenna Clanton, lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan and recent recipient of a breakup text (yes, text!) from a now ex-fiancé, got revenge by showing her ex just how much fun she's having without him in picture that's since gone viral on Twitter.

At the Monday night Dallas Cowboys game against the Detroit Lions in Arlington, TX, Alex McDaniel, the editor in chief of the Oxford Eagle and Oxford Press, tweeted a picture of Clanton holding a sign that read, "My fiancé​ dumped me in a text message. He should have waited until after Christmas."

That's because, according to McDaniel's tweet, Clanton, 30, had bought these great seats for the football game for them (and booked an Airbnb) before he dumped her in late October, over text message, claiming that they had "nothing in common" (which was one of the hashtags included on her handwritten sign, along with "ghosting," "MNF," and "ESPN").

In her tweet, McDaniel also added, "She's doing fine."

In an interview with Dallas News, Clanton related being at work (she's a hairstylist) one day in October and getting a breakup text from the man who'd asked to marry her just four months before. "That threw me for a loop," she said.

But she didn't let that stop her from enjoying the game without him. She explained, "I was absolutely going to go. I was just going to take my best friend instead." Just like that old saying, the best revenge is served cold, during a football game.
