This girl’s reply to ‘shower selfie’ text made her Twitter’s new hero

Heroes don't always wear capes, you know.

Sometimes they wear umbrella hats, and still there's no denying them as one 16-year-old girl from the States recently reminded us.

After being asked by a male classmate to send him a photo of herself in the shower, Reece Hebert happily obliged, and a star was born.

Rocking a multicoloured umbrella hat, Reece hopped on in, snapped away, sent the pic and then shared the exchange on Twitter.

And unsurprisingly, the Twitosphere is having a field day.

"I laughed way too hard at this," wrote one while another added: "You're hilarious. I don't know you, but I like you,"

"Girl, you are awesome," commented another while someone else predicted: "This gonna blow up."

Reece, take a bow.
