On Thursday, Griffen asked his mom to take photos of him with a doughnut. "He was like ‘Hey mom, why don’t we stop downtown, so you can take some pictures of me with this doughnut,'” Louvar said.


"Who am I to stand in the way of art?" the mom asked on Twitter.

You guys. My 6yo wanted a photo shoot with just him and a donut. Who am I to stand in the way of art? #soproud…

Griffen told BuzzFeed News that he wanted to take the doughnut pics "just to put on Instagram." He said that he wanted to give people "something to look at."
