Over the last few weeks, the world has been binge-watching Netflix's crime documentary Making a Murderer.


The series follows the story of Steven Avery, a man wrongly convicted of sexual assault who went on to be accused of murder upon his release.

Despite the tragic story, people have found two new heroes in the form of Wisconsin defense lawyers Dean Strang and Jerry Buting.

This photo has also become a very popular meme, which started by this tweet from Kate Briquelet.

What Twitter looks like right now. #MakingAMurderer

People are also screengrabbing, printing, and even framing photos of the two lawyers together.

To many, they've become an inspiration.

These defense attorneys in Making a Murderer, Dean Strang & Jerome Buting, are my new heroes. Damn. Making me think about law school again.

Some fans are comparing the duo to fictional lawyer and classic hero of literature Atticus Finch.

There's even a Tumblr account that goes into great detail about their fashion choices.

It resulted in this question.

Do hero lawyers Dean Strang and Jerome Buting realize all the fan girls they have on Twitter? #MakingAMurderer


Well... They are aware of their popularity.
