Lin-Manuel Miranda Created His Own ‘Meet My Dad’ Meme To Give A Shout Out To His Father
On March 28, college student Collin Hayslett from Ohio tweeted that he was proud of his dad for launching into a whole new career world. Cute, right? Well, his intention was lovely. However, the tweet turned into a viral meme and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s take is so much better tha even Hayslett could have hoped for.
Here’s the tweet that went viral and started the “meet my dad” meme.
The tweet, which has been liked more than 300,000 times, took off not only because his dad is hot, but also because others wanted to give props to their own dads.
People started using the #meetmydad hashtag to promote their own cool dads who do it all. One of those people was a very familiar person.
Lin-Manuel Miranda took this opportunity to brag about his own dad.
“I’ve been training all my life for this meme okay goodbye,” Lin tweeted.
For those of you unfamiliar with Lin’s dad, Luis A. Miranda, Jr. isn’t starting a modeling career, but has a stellar career of his own.
He is the Managing Partner of The MirRam Group and has served in three New York City mayoral administrations. He is also the founder and former President of the Hispanic Federation. Not too shabby. No wonder Lin is so proud of his dad.
Lin’s dad wanted to return the compliment by highlighting his own “meet my dad” tweet.
This is so cute! We love that he used the most silly pictures of Lin. They must have a really special father/son relationship.
@starksgoatee tweeted, “This is peak family goals right here.” And we couldn’t agree more.
Lin also tweeted that his dad said, “My dad on the phone just now: ‘did you see my mimeh?'” Mimeh! LOL!!
People kept the meme going by giving love to all kinds of celebrity daddies, like Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Honestly, who hasn’t already fallen in love with Lin-Manuel Miranda? He is the most chill and loveable daddy in entertainment today. That isn’t an exaggeration and the collective love people have for him is proof that we cannot get enough of him.
Of course, someone gave Pitbull a lot of love.
Mr. Worldwide has definitely reached all of his dreams with his wildly successful career. He has taken his music and Cuban culture to every corner of the planet and continues to do things to help his community. He has built schools and donated money for so many causes definitely getting him to that daddy level.
Even William Levy got some love during the “meet my dad” challenge.
Levy is a certifiable zaddy. No doubt about that. He is one man who has kept men and women drooling for decades since he started in telenovelas. Just one look in his eyes and it is so hard not to get lost forever.
