Dr. Phil, who is 70 years old, has become exceedingly popular with Gen Z on TikTok lately, but he’s not necessarily fond of the reason why.
His younger fans have taken to commenting “daddy” on all of his posts.
No one seems to know
where the trend started,
but Dr. Phil would like for it to end.
“You have to stop commenting ‘daddy’ on my posts,” he said
in his latest TikTok.
“I ain’t ya daddy. I hate to break it to you, but I ain’t ya daddy. And your real daddy is probably getting his feelings hurt”.
He said he appreciated all the support, but admitted “it’s a little weird”.
Naturally, most of the comments on Dr. Phil’s video feature fans still calling him daddy.
“We are sorry, father,”
