The Wikipedia page of 'Man' has been updated with the photo of an Indian guy. Amused social media users have taken to Twitter sharing screenshots of the page wondering how he ended up there. As pictures of the guy went viral, people commented that he looked like a Keralite. Netizens suggested he was a Malayalee and even shared his other photos. A Twitter user shared screenshot of the Wikipedia page with the caption, "The Wikipedia entry for 'man' has a mallu dude posing as a man I CANNOT."
Meanwhile, fellow Malayalees tweeted saying that Wikipedia misspelt Mone, which is used to loving address 'son' in Malayalam. Tweets read, "They misspelled mone.(sic)" While some questioned how people understood the place he belonged to, others couldn't understand the hue and cry around it. Meanwhile, some Twitterati found out the guy's identity and confirmed that he is indeed from Kerala. People shared screenshots of his Pixabay account where his username is abhiputhenpurackal143.
