Most people wouldn’t even dream of letting their mother read through their text messages, let alone ones from a dating site but that is exactly what one guy, Riyadh Khalaf decided he wanted to do.
Riyadh is a member of dating site Grindr and took to his popular YouTube channel to document the experience of allowing his mum to sit next to him and read out said messages.
As you might imagine, not all of the messages were really PG and there were blushes for both mother and son, but the experience seemed to have bonded the duo – and shows just how important it is to have a supportive parent.
He spoke about the YouTube video that has gone on to get over a million views in only three days and said:
I did have this fear that I would have the finger pointed at me for promoting a gay stereotype but 99 per cent of the comments have been positive.
His mother may have been left ‘slightly traumatised’ but she gained a few fans due to her response as well so it was a win all round!
