This is Correll Stanfield, aka @_King_Rell_. He's a 20-year-old barber living in Baltimore.
The tweet, which now has more than 14,000 retweets and 20,000 favorites, took off when Twitter users became enamored with how handsome both Stanfield and his father are.
Stanfield says he was in Atlanta, when he initially posted what — unbeknownst to him — would become the massively viral tweet. "I realized it was becoming a big deal once I hit 100,000 impressions on Twitter," he told BuzzFeed.
Stanfield says the wildest thing someone asked him since posting his tweet was whether or not they could be his "girlfriend and stepmom at the same time," which he calls the most "G-rated" thing someone has said to him.
From insanely inappropriate advances...
...to more tame responses, asking if his father has any social media accounts...
...to people being unabashed in their unsolicited flirtations.
Both Stanfield and his father have become the topic of text conversations among people they don't even know, like this one, which apparently took place in New York:
They've even become Facebook memes.
And the photo was picked up by a popular Twitter account called Fine Ass Black Men, which is essentially a purveyor of thirst.
Stanfield has received a lot of attention from people online in the past 72 hours, but he says he doesn't let it affect him too much.
As for these men and their love lives, Stanfield says that he is single, but his father is "happily married."
