Kelsey Harmon tweeted a photo of her grandfather with the message: "dinner with papaw tonight... he made 12 burgers for all 6 grandkids and I'm the only one who showed. love him."

That tweet was re-tweeted more than 123,000 times.  People were saying how sad they were for "Papaw."

Some people got really mad at the other 5 grandchildren, and Kelsey says some were even sending death threats to her cousin.  She tweeted out, "Papaw is ok guys I promise & he loves all grandkids equally."

One of the other grandchildren, Brock, went to visit "Papaw" after the photo went viral. Brock tweeted out the picture and said "I came to Papaw's house and am having a burger!"  Brock also says that Papaw wanted everyone to know "Ya'll are awesome for making him famous."
