With over 25,000 mentions of Father’s Day on the Twitter timeline, many were left wondering how the day got hijacked.
Surprised moms around the world didn’t hold back their frustration when seeing their counterparts trend on Twitter.
“When it’s Mother’s Day, but Men gotta make it all about themselves,” one Twitter user commented.

“I get praising fathers who did the mom role and father role today but this ain’t Father’s Day wait until june for y’all flowers,” a third mom proclaimed.

Some people on social media were making a point that Father’s Day being celebrated could refer to the single dads in the world who do the jobs of both parents. Just as single moms are usually given a shoutout on the actual Father’s Day, many felt giving the dads some love wasn’t the worst thing in the world.
“Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there but more importantly, to all of the single dads who have to fulfill both roles. Real kings,” one comment read.
Happy Mother’s Day, daddy!
