The Internet Freaks Out Over This Girl’s Sad Photo Of Her Grandpa Eating A Burger
Meet Kelsey Harmon, a college softball player from Oklahoma.
On Wednesday night, Kelsey had a dinner date with her grandpa who she affectionately calls “Pawpaw.” The grandfather invited his other five grandchildren over for a dinner of burgers and homemade ice cream, a traditional treat he has been churning out since his grandchildren have been little kids. However, of the six grandkids, only Kelsey showed up for the special dinner, and Pawpaw took it hard.
Kelsey tweeted out this heartbreaking of Pawpaw, with the caption, “Dinner with papaw tonight…he made 12 burgers for all 6 grandkids and I’m the only one who showed. love him.”
The emotional photo has gone completely viral and been RT’d 130,000 times and Liked 210,000 times.
Harmon told BuzzFeed News that the six grandchildren are older and “it is hard for them to all get together like they used to. But, Papaw had asked them to all come over while they were around for spring break.”
People adored the inconsolable grandpa, and Pawpaw has since been crowned “The Internet’s Grandpa.”
Kelsey has since responded to the overwhelming outpouring of support.
Once in awhile, the Internet proves that it’s not a cesspool of toxic hate and trolling.
