A little boy’s class photos are going viral over his adorably angry face — but some random man has been claiming to be his dad and asking for donations.

On Nov. 17, the man — who goes by the name of Bill Muhammad — shared three photos of the little boy on Facebook.

In the images, the tot is all dressed up, with a miserable look on his face.

In the caption, Muhammad revealed the reason for the little guy’s long face, and it’s hilarious.

“I ate his pop tart before his class picture and he said he never smiling again,” Muhammad wrote after asking for prayers for “his son.” He hashtagged #poptartforeverfund #cashapp, and included his Cash App account name, $bandobill

The post went viral, amassing 156k shares and 40k comments over two days.

But what seemed like a hilarious and innocent father-son moment quickly turned into a soap opera, when a woman named Tantarnea Arnold shared Muhammad’s post, revealing that he isn’t really the little guy’s father. Ms Arnold identified the child as her son, and tagged his actual father, Michael Arnold.

According to WLTV in New Orleans, the photos of her son, Makari Arnold, are from 2017, and were taken at his daycare. Makari’s photos went viral last year after his cousin posted them.

Ms Arnold doesn’t deny that the memes inspired by her adorable child’s mean mug are pretty funny, but she’s having a hard time getting used to her baby boy being in the spotlight.

Especially now that some stranger is claiming to be his father. “It’s disrespectful,” Ms Arnold told WWLTV. “We just really want to get rid of all our social media and we’re on social media to stay in touch with our family and to share special moments…it really feels like a piece of you has been taken.”

She wrote on Facebook that claiming someone else’s child is not funny, even if it’s just meant to be a joke. “Don’t be out here trying to use our son for likes or money. That’s lame and so disrespectful.”

She asked her friends to let her know if they see anyone “claiming him” or the picture.

Makari’s dad also shared Muhammad’s post on Facebook, asking friends to alert him of any GoFundMe accounts regarding his son.
