The Adam Levine Text meme originates from Tik Tok video of Sumner Stroh, a 23-year-old Instagram model, and influencer who went viral on Monday, September 19, 2022, after she released a TikTok about her year-long affair with Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
The video, which has received 21 million views in 48 hours, was posted five days after Victoria’s Secret model and Levine’s wife of eight years, Behati Prinsloo, revealed the pregnancy of their third child. The social media influencer from Austin, Texas posted several screenshots of their Instagram DMs, in which Adam appeared to describe her by sending texts like “f*cking hot,” “You are 50 times hotter in person. And so am I hahahah,” “I may need to see the booty” and “that body of yours is absurd.” Soon later, five more women came forward with allegations of unwanted approaches by Levine. Since all of this went viral, the internet has been reeling.
People are memeing Adam because he is a married father of two, and his wife is expecting their third child. This would be a regular celebrity infidelity scandal, except that one of the screenshots shows Adam asking one of his mistresses if he could use her first name as the first name of his new baby.
Many individuals have also complained that the texts he sends are lame and thirsty. The same people are now making those texts humorous.
The meme refers to a series of tweets that pair various humorous images with an Instagram DM that reads “That body of yours is absurd.”
The earliest joke response was posted by Twitter user @JustifyMyLee on 21st September which received more than 750 retweets and 7,000 Likes within 48 hours.
