Lama Ali, a 20-year-old art student from Virgina decided to send a subtle “screw you” to her art teachers in the best possible way…
The student was given three assignments due on the same day for a fashion drawing class, so she decided to secretly convey her feelings about it in one of her final pieces of work…
She hid the message “you got me fucked up” in American Sign Language within her final piece.
Lama said that she hid the message because she was “high key salty about all the work that was piled upon us.”
While working in the library, she said: “After being on maximum overdrive for that long, the only thing that kept repeating in my head was ‘you got me fucked up’.”
Realising she couldn’t exactly write it in big red letters, she “decided to write it in sign language so it would be less detectable.”
Lama posted the painting onto her Twitter out of amusement, expecting a few likes and “a few little giggles here and there” for her saltiness. But the post went viral, and has been retweeted over 47,000 times!
And the people of Twitter found the level of pettiness hilarious!

@LemAli23 is the reason why I strive as a WoC in the realm of art. The level of MVP in that piece is astronomical and I live
