One day, the Internet was minding its own business, doing Internet things and everything was normal.

And then the next day, Chelsea Smith tweeted something and everything changed. 

Chelsea Smith shared an image yesterday that revealed she'd spent her entire life wearing her earrings "wrong." 

"After my nineteen years of living i have now realized that you are supposed to take the plastic part off," she tweeted along with a photo of the little plastic disc from the back of the earring removed.

Wait. That wasn't part of the earring? You're supposed to slip that off after you buy it?! When we say this little tidbit blew people's minds, we were not exaggerating:

Still, some people are saying this plastic piece is actually important to the earring itself and shouldn’t be removed.

According to, the plastic piece is an earring back stabilizer, frequently referred to as a “clutch,” and it is used to displace weight so the earring doesn’t droop.

Now you know, kids. Everything anyone says on the Internet ever is either true and/or important information.

How do you all wear your earrings? With or without plastic?
