A heartbreaking photo of a grandfather eating alone brought the Internet to tears after it was posted to Twitter.

The image was shared by Oklahoma-based college student Kelsey Harmon, the man’s granddaughter, while he sat at a table looking down at his burger, the Daily Mail reports. He made 12 burgers that night in anticipation of his family. However, Kelsey’s Papaw was devastated when only one of his six grandchildren showed up.

Since the photo was posted, many people have written to show support for the older man, Fusion reported.

“I know I don’t know you or papaw but can you tell him that we [the internet] love him?” one person wrote, according to the Daily Mail.

The tweet was shared more than 84,000 times and favorited by more than 150,000 people within the first 24 hours of its posting. The image has even been Photoshopped onto the cover of Drake’s album cover for Take Care.

Some people have been more driven to extremes, like sending death threats to Kelsey’s cousins.

“Papaw is ok guys I promise & he loves all grandkids equally, plz stop sending my cousins death threats everything is ok!!!” Kelsey wrote.

One Twitter user noted that any one of the social media users would love to have a burger with Papaw.

On March 17, Brock Harmon, one of Papaw’s other grandchildren, tweeted a picture of himself eating a hamburger with his grandfather. He wrote that Papaw forgave him and thanked everyone for making his grandfather famous.
