Alexandra Tweten started Bye Felipe on Instagram in October 2014. The idea came from a discussion between women in a private Facebook group about terrible messages women receive from men when they say they aren't interested. Dozens of women posted screenshots of messages they had received and Alexandra decided to gather them all and post them on Instagram.
Originally an inside joke in the Facebook group, Bye Felipe came from the phrase "Bye Felicia" referenced by Ice Cube in the movie "Friday."
Followers can submit their screenshots by direct message on Instagram or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
