A Michigan mother who responded to two women who were calling her a whale by buying them coffee has gone viral.

The next morning, Dianne Hoffmeyer saw her email account lock up after receiving about 1.5 million notifications and messages and her Facebook page was jammed with messages from around the globe, according to The Times Herald.

“One positive action in a negative moment has caused a tsunami of friendship for me with moms that are going through the same thing,” the 41-year-old Burtchville Township woman told the newspaper.
