He was #1 in A school. "He is a gentleman who respects women", Oklahoma mum Marla Reynolds wrote in a since-deleted tweet. He won't go on solo dates due to the current climate of false sexual accusations by radical feminists with an axe to grind.

Brandishing the hashtag #HimToo - which has become more prominent in recent weeks as Brett Kavanaugh has sought to overcome allegations of sexual assault to seal a place on the Supreme Court - the mother said her Navy son had become so scared of false accusations from women, he had forgone dating altogether. Some, like Qasim Rashid, creator and host of Re Sight Islam podcast, wrote satirical posts.

Late Monday night, Hanson created his own Twitter account to clarify that the woman who posted his photo on Twitter was his mother, however, he is in no way affiliated with the #HimToo movement and that he believes and supports women. "He won't go on solo dates even though he never gave up, let you down, run around, or deserted you, make you cry, say goodbye, tell a lie nor hurt you", the tweet stated referring to lyrics of Astley's hit song "Never Gonna Give You Up".

The 32-year-old Navy veteran was taking an exam at the University of Central Florida when his phone began erupting like Mount Vesuvius, the Washington Post reported.

"I still love her. I'm still trying to wrap my head around all this".

For all comic intents and purposes, #HimToo has been hijacked.

Navy mom's tweet makes #HimToo mockery go viral

Mr Hanson has made it clear he did not approve of his mother's message, posting on Twitter: "That was my Mom".

On Twitter, his brother posted a picture of him and Pieter, captioning it: "My brother is trending on twitter because of my mum's ridiculous tweet". I'm a mixture of laughing hard and feeling band for him.

He said he had four soldiers working for him who spent the next 11 months asking "if I had called my mother". "On Tuesday morning, he tweeted for the first time, cleverly using the handle "@Thatwasmymom". Sometimes the people we love do things that hurt us without realizing it.

'I never have and never will support #HimToo.

Everything about that is amusing, from the weird conservative paranoia to the godawful hashtag to the picture itself, which looks more like someone starring in a musical about the navy and an actual U.S. Navy vet.

"She had good intentions but I never expected this to go viral", he tweeted in one reply.
