A high-school girl from Houston has gone viral after she was caught on camera appearing to shut down a creepy older dude at an Election Night party who tried to hit on her. But don’t worry–it was really just her dad saying something creepy to her about who he wants to date. “TWITTER please find this girl I have to know what that guy said to her,” a Twitter user wrote Tuesday along with a clip of TV footage that shows the girl turning toward the man to hear something he says, then dramatically putting a hand to his face, mouthing “Bye bye!” and strutting away.

By Wednesday afternoon, 17-year-old Ellie Delgado came forward by tweeting, “It’s just my dad…chill.” She added in a separate tweet, “LOL hi, it’s just my dad talking about a woman he wants to date.” (Eww!)
Fun fact: Their interaction took place at a victory party for Texas congressional hopeful Dan Crenshaw–a.k.a. the one-eyed veteran who became famous this past weekend after Pete Davidson made fun of him on SNL. Crenshaw tweeted about Delgado, “Relax everyone, it’s her dad!! I have to admit, this might be one of my favorite things from our election night party.”
