Henry Winkler Trends on Twitter for Looking Like PBA President Patrick Lynch

Henry Winkler started trending on Twitter on fans got nervous for a second.

When they realized the 74-year-old actor was doing ok, they started doing some research to find out why – learning that it’s because he looks like Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch.

During a press conference on Tuesday (June 9), the PBA President denounced police brutality while discussing George Floyd‘s death.

“We’ve protested,” Lynch said. “We believe in it and we believe in their rights, but now we’re being guided by those that were intent on violence from outside our communities, that threw the stone, that broke the window, that caused the violence that injured 300 police officers, some viciously. That’s who we denounce.”

After his press conference, people took to slam Lynch, saying he was leaning his support towards corrupt police officers, all while comparing his looks to Henry.
