Hank From ‘Breaking Bad’ Makes Epic X-Rated Blunder On Social Media
| Last updated
It should come as no surprise that the majority of millennials and Gen Xers are expected to know a hell of a lot more about social media and how to use it than the older population.
After all, they grew up with it, were moulded by it (reading in Bane voice) and know the difference between a like, comment, share and status update. Maybe your gran does too, but some might say she'd be the exception in this case, rather than the rule.
If you have your parents or their friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even Snapchat, then you'll most likely have seen them cock something up.
Whether anyone really notices the cringeworthy moment probably depends on how clued-up their friends and followers are - or whether anyone is kind-hearted enough to gently point out the error. Or, you know, savage enough to brutally take the piss.
Speaking of which, here's what happens when the mistake comes from a big-name actor with more than half a million followers.

While it's not 100 percent clear what Dean Norris, aka Agent Hank Schrader from Breaking Bad, meant when he typed those simple seven letters, many across the Internet have surmised that he meant to type that into the search bar instead of the 'Make a Tweet' section.
So the actor would presumably have been a little confused when he hit what he thought was the 'Search' button and no sex GIFs came onto the screen.
Also, 'sex GIFs' is an incredibly vague search term when you're looking for porn.
Whatever the case is, the internet responded accordingly with brilliant Hank GIFs
Dean Norris's Twitter feed is actually a treasure trove of funny, weird and interesting posts and retweets.
Whether it's random posts, throwbacks to Breaking Bad or videos with Snoop Dogg, it's clear that the 55-year-old has not shortage of fun in his life
Hip. Hip hoppity

You can have my bong, Jeff Sessions, when you pry it from my cold, dead, stinky hands.

He's hardly the first celebrity to be caught in an awkward social media blunder and there's no way he'll be the last.
Charlie Sheen's phone probably melted when he accidentally posted his number on Twitter instead of sending it as a direct message to Justin Bieber.
Scott Disick - you know, the guy who used to date a Kardashian - uploaded the instructions of a sponsored post about a supplement he was advertising. Instead of the usual 'OMG you guys need to try this stuff', he (or possibly his social media team) posted: "Here you go, at 4pm est, write the below."
Ariana Grande was caught in an awkward position when she uploaded a photo of her in a bedroom and people definitely thought a phallic object in the background was a dildo - however the 'One Last Time' singer assured everyone that it was a microphone.
That just goes to show you that even young people can stuff up on social media.
