After the Gates family broke the news on their divorce, social media immediately exploded, with netizens sliding into Melinda Gates' DMs, suggesting that she and the ex-wife of Jeff Bezos, MacKenzie Scott, team up and produce memes about a fading marriage.

The Gates family asked for "space and privacy" when revealing their decision to split up after 27 years of marriage.

"We no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives", the couple said in a combined statement.

​Many users joked about how MacKenzie Scott and Melinda Gates could have a "hot girl summer", referencing a memeficated song by Meghan Thee Stallion that means being confident about yourself, having fun, and looking good while doing it.

​​Some suggested that the now billionaire ex-wives should team up for a new charity foundation, reality show, or even something more.

​Others just went crazy with all sorts of memes about on divorce paralleled with Microsoft jokes.

​Bill and Melinda Gates were married in 1994 and have three adult children: Jennifer, Phoebe and Rory Gates. The two co-established a charity foundation in 2000. When announcing the decision to split paths as a couple, the two outlined that they will continue to work with the foundation.
