The user account was also suspended in 2022, but the meme circulated. Not only this- the same user also tweeted,

Even if the user deleted the post, netizens kept it alive through screenshots. Many other users also started to create memes of her after that.

Began to Spread More On the Internet

People began to throw the term “Greek towel” on Twitter, and netizens kept sharing her pictures on social media.

They claimed that Scotti was perfect for the representation of the Ancient Rome lover boy that men had access to.

The tweet went viral, and many people responded to it in the comment section, which expressed confusion and disgust.

Thus, it may have started as a joke, as with many social media trends. Many Twitter users started to become rather fixated on Gio. They created a montage of her TikToks and gushed about how beautiful she was.

It didn’t stop there – the meme got more attention from people when other netizens even began joking about her as a “desirable 13-year-old Greek boyfriend.”

However, a lot of the positive remarks and videos about her just equated her to the Greek towel boy in their imaginations.

For those questioning, if she ever responded to the meme – the answer is “yes.” She responded to it through her Instagram story.
