This is not the first time I’ve seen this. Lena Headey just posted this on Twitter:
I’m not sure where she went. But now she’s back.
Go to the replies under her Tweet and see how many people are calling her “mom.” Did she volunteer to be their online mother? Somehow I doubt it.
There are certainly worse ways for fans to treat their beloved entertainers! A parent is an authority figure, usually a trusted one. Designating someone as a parent is a sign of tremendous affection. It means you look up to them, you love them, and you’re happy to see them.
It also implies you expect this person to take care of you, and that’s weird. I sort of wonder how celebs on social media feel about fans calling them Mom or Dad.
