Sad grandpa cheered up by Internet after grandkids bail on burger night

(WCMH) – A photo of a sad grandpa eating a hamburger is breaking the internet.

The photo here shows Kelsey Harmon’s grandpa eating one of 12 burgers he made for the no-show guests.

“He made 12 burgers for all 6 grandkids and I’m the only one who showed,” her Tweet with the photo reads.

The internet wasn’t happy that Harmon’s five cousins stood grandpa up, WTEN-TV reports. Many say they found it heartbreaking and retweeted the post almost 140,000 times.

Harmon says she received hundreds of messages from people saying her tweet encouraged them to visit their own grandparents.

Many on Twitter are now using this an a reminder to call their own grandparents. As far as Kelsey’s grandpa goes:

“Papaw is great,” Kelsey later added. “Please know he is loved deeply, and now widely.”
