Young Girl Flips Off Audience At Christmas Pageant And Social Media Is Loving It
A little girl cast as an angel in her very first nativity play is being celebrated by the Internet for flipping off the entire audience for at least 20 minutes. Young Ella made an unforgettable stage debut when she walked out to the stage, sought out to see where her mom was sitting and flipped the bird. “Bless mason and Ella in their school play, it’s just a shame Ella spent the whole time trying to show me she’d hurt her middle finger ????????♀️????????,” Ella’s mom, Carla Bovingdon, shared to Facebook along with the hilarious photos of her angelic daughter. According to Bovingdon, Ella just really likes to show her mom when she’s hurt herself. Once Bovingdon shared the picture of innocence with the Facebook world, little Ella’s debut stage performance went viral.
Now, we’re all hurting with stitches from laughing so hard. ????
The moment Ella walked out onto the stage, she searched the crowd to find her mom and concertedly waved her middle finger in the air for her mom to see.
At first, Bovingdon was horrified and kept asking Ella to put her finger down. “I was thinking, ‘oh god, Ella please stop.’ Because she was doing it so innocently I think most people were thinking, ‘oh bless her,'” Bovingdon told Manchester Evening News. “I was like put ya hand down????????♀️ ????” Bovingdon later commented on her now-viral Facebook post.
Bovingdon was more embarrassed than amused at first, but after she saw a few people giggling in the audience, she was able to accept that her daughter was not going to let up. “The performance was about half-an-hour long, and I would say 70 percent of it she had her middle finger up. Now after people have had a laugh I can see the funny side of it,” she told the outlet.
All Ella was trying to do was show her mom her “injury.”
“She likes to let me know if she’s at all injured, so she was basically trying to show me what she had done from across the room. It was the tiniest little hangnail as well,” Bovingdon told Manchester Evening News. Later, Bovingdon shared an image of Ella’s tragic injury, saying “This is the tiny cut she was trying to show me ????????♀️????????????.” If you look closely, you see a little bit of redness around Ella’s bird finger cuticle. While Ella just had a hangnail, it’s easy to forget how concerning it probably was the very first time we all had a hangnail or ripped skin around our cuticles. We’ve all become hardened now to the feeling, but Ella was the definition of innocence that night.
At one point, Ella put up two middle fingers just so she could compare her ‘injured’ finger to her other finger.
Little Ella only had eyes for her middle fingers for the duration of the school play. When Ella decided to pull her middle fingers together side by side, essentially becoming the angelic version of Eminem, her mom decided she just had to accept that Ella was going to do what she wanted. At the very least, the nativity scene must have taught Bovingdon the gift of “serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.”
“Had to be my kid ????????♀️????” Bovingdon would later comment on social media.
We’re so glad this real-life angel could brighten up so many people’s day.
“Oh my word that is hilarious ????????thank you Ella for cheering up a gloomy Tuesday ????????,” commented one family friend. “This keeps popping up on my feed and I’m literally laughing at it every time ???????????? hilarious,” commented another friend.
The best part about Ella’s stage presence is that, according to her mom, “she was completely oblivious ????.” Her family and friends are suggesting that she hold onto the photos and wait until young Ella is a ripe 18-year-old and can enjoy a proper laugh from her naivete. In the meantime, her mom has tried to convey what it means that she’s gone viral, but she still doesn’t get it. At first, Bovingdon told Manchester Evening News that, Ella “wanted to say thank you to everyone for liking her picture, but then she said, ‘I don’t know what’s funny though’. She doesn’t get what the joke is.”
One day, Ella. One day.
