Tony Hawk Keeps Tweeting When People Don't Recognize Him And It's Freaking Hilarious

Justice for Tony Hawk.

Let's go over something real quick: This is what pro skateboarder Tony Hawk looks like.

I'm telling you this because SOME OF YOU apparently have a hard time recognizing Tony Hawk in the flesh. But the good news is, he has a sense of humor about it — and he's been documenting every one of your awkward encounters on Twitter.

When people meet Tony Hawk, they seem to realize that he's...somebody:

But they just aren't quite sure who that somebody is:

A whole lot of the exchanges take place at airports:

And on airplanes, too:

Some people are downright rude to poor, sweet Tony Hawk:

While others inadvertently compliment him:

This lady knew he was famous, but couldn't figure out what he did for a living:

And ALL of these people are better than this guy, who actually did recognize Tony Hawk and still found a way to be rude about it:

Look, a little confusion is understandable! Most people aren't expecting to run into Tony Hawk IRL — including this flight attendant:

But at the end of the day, we should all strive to be more like this guy:

So one more time for the people in the back: This is Tony Hawk's face. Stare at it, study it, imprint it in your brain!

Please be nice to him if you see him around.
