Humans of New York has always been a thirst trap for Facebook moms, but over the weekend, presidential candidate and cool Brooklynite Hillary Clinton pulled the Facebook Mom Comment to end all Facebook Mom Comments.

On Friday, HONY uploaded this heartbreaking post:

"I'm homosexual and I'm afraid about what my future will be and that people won't like me."

Posted by Humans of New York on Friday, July 3, 2015

To which Clinton replied:

If you can't read the text, it says, "Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing. You will surprise yourself with what you're capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you - there will be lots of them. -H." TEARS.
