Nanjiani took time on Tuesday, one day after he caused an internet firestorm, to reflect on all the amazing, yet “weird” attention he received. He shared a screenshot showing that a popular adult website that changed the Muscular Men category image to his buff pic!
“It’s been a weird couple of days… This is NOT photoshopped. Pornhub changed their picture of the Muscular Men category to… me. As I said, weird couple of days,” Kumail wrote in the caption of his post.
All of his famous friends, and there are many, loved his pic but they could not believe that the once slender comedian is a sex symbol.
Even “Guardians of The Galaxy” director James Gunn got in on the action and wrote, “Ahahaha!!!!”
Nanjiani’s picture is was pretty awesome but he could not have gained so many celeb buddies from a single Instagram post. It just proves that he is one of the most well-liked actors and an astounding amount of his A-List friends showed him support. Our good friends at Comments By Celebs did an amazing job capturing not one but two posts full of all the fantastic comments.
Here are some of our favorites: John Stamos wrote, “I think I’m in love,” and Zach Braff commented, “*Slowly putting down the Kit Kat I’m eating.”
The most meaningful comment came from a celebrity who could still put the newly fit Kumail to shame. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson wrote, “Extremely hard work. Dense muscle is hard to achieve. Looking great my brother!! ????” Nanjiani was so thrilled by the comment that he had to respond. “@therock holy… wow. Thank you. Nothing will ever mean as much as this coming from you. Next time I see you, I’m hounding you for tips. ??????” Kumail replied.
Just goes to show you that hard work pays off.
