On Wednesday night, Harmon tweeted out a photo of herself having dinner with her grandfather. She then revealed what she said was the GUT-WRENCHING story behind her snap.

“Dinner with papaw tonight…he made 12 burgers for all 6 grandkids and I’m the only one who showed.love him,” she wrote.

The tweet totally blew up, and got more than 70,000 retweets in less than 24 hours. Hearts broke all over the world for poor Papaw.

Why didn’t the other five grandkids show up?

Some people pointed out it could have been worse.

People also of course, turned Papaw into a meme.

And others said the photo made them miss their own grandparents.

“This breaks my heart. [I’d] do anything to eat dinner with my grandparents again,” one person wrote.

Other people got super pissed at the other five grandkids.

And even started to troll one of Papaw’s other grandkids, Brock Harmon, on Twitter.

It actually got a little scary, because Kelsey Harmon tweeted that people started sending her cousins death threats over the photo.

After the tweet went viral, Brock Harmon tweeted that he had decided to pay his grandpa a visit. He even had a burger.

And he added that he has been forgiven for missing dinner.

But he’s still getting a lot of shade for missing the dinner.

Don’t worry Papaw, you now have thousands of friends dying to eat burgers with you.
