Christopher Meloni was trending on social media recently, but it had nothing to do with his career. It was because of his, well, behind.
The "Law & Order: Organized Crime" star wasn't the butt of the jokes, but Twitter definitely had a heyday. Likewise, the actor played along.
Christopher's derriere became a topic of online conversation after a photo of him rocking some very tight pants landed on Twitter.
"SVU is filming in park slope this week and someone in the neighborhood facebook group posted this photo of chris meloni," someone tweeted, later joking the show should be renamed "Special Thicctims Unit."
A fan later asked Chris directly if he wanted to "explain" why he had "so much cake," referring to his posterior.
"Sure – big birthday(60), big boy(200 lbs), big cake," he hilariously replied.
A fan later asked Chris why he was trending on Twitter. "The other Melonis are trending, not me," he joked back.
Still, fans continued to thirst over the photo.
"How does one man have at least six men worth of butt in his pants," one person said. Another added, "What in the melon section of the supermarket is happening here." A Vice reporter humorously tweeted, "Can someone give him my email address it's… for… work."
Funnily enough, this isn't the first time fans have been enthralled with Chris' backside. While chatting with Conan O'Brien in 2014, the Emmy winner joked that he has the "best [butt] in primetime."
Twitter is clearly trying to get to the bottom of this story.
