Shawn Mendes hilariously dragged his idol John Mayer on Instagram on Friday, January 24.
Mayer, 40, posted a baby-faced throwback photo of himself holding a guitar with the caption “#tbt 1998. In it for life." Shawn, 19, then commented on the post “Year I was born old man @johnmayer.”
Fans in the comments couldn't contain themselves.
“DAAAANNNG WHY YOU GOTTA BURN JOHN LIKE THAT? 😂” one person commented, while another added: “Woah woah woah calm yourself Mendes you can’t just burn my father like that.”
Shawn’s comment was of course in fun. He’s previously toured with Mayer and has spoken out about how he’s helped guide his career.
“[Performing with Mayer] was obviously incredible. As a person I really relate to him and I think he’s awesome,” Mendes told People magazine in the past. “He’s a dude I can call — for him to be like, ‘Hey man, how’s life? You’re gonna be fine.’ And my anxiety levels down to a one instead of a 55. That’s something that’s really nice.”
