We live in an era where people think Guy Fieri is their dad and it’s perfectly acceptable to beg a celebrity to adopt you over social media. The trend is undoubtably bizarre, but at least these Twitter weirdos actually exist.

Speaking of Twitter trolls, flocks of “furries” have begun harassing Tony the Tiger (a very fictional character) over Twitter, sending him inappropriate replies to some of his most innocent tweets. And if you aren’t aware, a furry is “someone who finds the idea of anthropomorphic (humanlike) animals, in art, fiction, cartoons, costume, or other media, to be appealing.”


If you’re looking to see some wholesome replies to ads on Twitter, we advise you don’t read Tony the Tiger’s tweets. Here’s why:

Recently, Tony the Tiger dropped an ad asking fans to “fill in your GRRRREAT,” assuming children would reply with some fun phrases and boost the brand’s popularity.


Little did Frosted Flakes know that they were in for quite the opposite. People began replying with some dirty messages and photos that should not even be repeated out loud.



And this is not a sensation specific to Tony’s one tweet. A quick browse of Tony the Tiger’s Twitter feed will show an array of gross messages no matter what the tweet.



Tony even fired back asking people to tone down their responses. After all, this is supposed to be a family-friendly Twitter account.

Some people even apologized.

But by the looks of it, this obsession isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Parents, hide your children from Tony the Tiger’s Twitter feed.
