One of these people wrote: “kathryn admiring her like an angel flung out of space dhskdjd.”
Another said: “I feel like I’m intruding on a first date. Just gonna finish my appetiser and pretend I have a headache.”
A different commenter tweeted: “this level of lust is reserved solely for lesbians,” while yet another person said: “KATHRYN YOU CAN’T OPENMOUTHED STARE AT PEOPLE’S LIPS LIKE THIS IN PUBLIC.”
