On Tuesday, news broke that celeb royalty Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were calling it quits and that Jolie had reportedly filed for divorce. 

Despite the fact that Pitt and his ex-wife, fellow celeb Jennifer Aniston, have been divorced since 2005 (and Aniston is fully remarried to a whole new person) Twitter immediately blew up with memes imagining Aniston's response to the news that Brangelina is o-v-e-r.

Aniston hasn't given any indication that she's a jilted lover, sitting around ruminating on her cheatin' ex-man (rumors suggest that Pitt and Jolie got together on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004). In fact, Jennifer Aniston has spent the past decade having a full career, and by all accounts, an equally full personal life. 

So maybe we should give the bitter ex-wife narrative a rest? As some Twitter users have (rightly) pointed out, pitting #TeamJen and #TeamAngelina against each other is both sexist and sooo 2005.
