A teen in Connecticut inadvertently made her grandmother a viral sensation after she posted a tweet about nobody showing up to the 89-year-old woman’s art show.
Lily Jourdan felt bad that only two people attended Magdalene Jourdon’s show at the Thompson library in North Grosvenordale last weekend. Magdalene blamed it on the rainy weather.
Lily then sent out a tweet featuring a snapchat photo of her “Sad Grandma” that went viral. It has been retweeted over 22,000 times.

Magdalene’s artwork will be a the library until May 25. It includes pieces painted on tree trunks, rocks and seashells.
One twitter user commented, “Her paintings are so beautiful and I really hope she will get the recognition she deserves!!!! All the love.”
