As the #MeToo movement gained momentum, one US mother’s tweet made her son the star of ‘Him Too’ hashtag. It all happened when his mother posted on Twitter claiming her “gentleman” son is afraid to go on dates because of “radical feminists.”

The woman with the handle @BlueStarNavyMom, posted about her son, Pieter Hanson’s attributes as a gentleman. She then stated that “he won’t go on solo dates due to the current climate of false sexual accusations by radical feminists with an axe to grind.”

The tweet quickly went viral and many came up with memes taking a jibe at 24-year-old Hanson with #HimToo.

As the number of memes increased, @BlueStarNavyMom deleted her account and Hanson was clearly embarrassed. “It doesn’t represent me at all,” Hanson, who is studying entrepreneurship, told the Washington Post. “I love my mom to death, but boy . . . I’m still trying to wrap my head around all this,” he said adding he isn’t afraid of going out on solo dates. And to his not-so-happy Twitter fame, he clarified he did not even have an account when the viral trend happened.

In fact, it was his brother who initially came out to clear the air about him and called his mother’s tweet ridiculous.

However, as #HimToo memes only started getting stronger, Hanson decided to join the Twitterverse. The Navy vet went with the username “@Thatwasmymom”. And appreciating all the good meme, even those that were made at his own expense, he wrote, “I respect and #BelieveWomen. I never have and never will support #HimToo. I’m a proud Navy vet, Cat Dad and Ally. Also, Twitter, your meme game is on point.”
