William Jackson Harper is smiling, and cringing, at fans’ obsession with his shirtless body. And we’re loving every second of it.
Let us take you back to around this time last year. The fifth episode in the Good Place’s third season dropped and gave us a sight for our sore eyes. Namely, a shirtless Chidi. And it was almost blinding. Next thing you know, a swarm of tweets came in obsessing over actor William Jackson Harper and his physique.

And now, it appears he’s getting to read some of those tweets for our enjoyment (and his slight discomfort).
Grabbing the baton from his castmate Manny Jacinto, William joined Buzzfeed for their “Thirst Tweets” series. The series has seen many names like Milo Ventimiglia, Troye Sivan, Richard Madden, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, Nyle DiMarco, and even Dr. Phil reading tweets from thirsty fans. Each one as hilarious, and possibly disturbing, as the other.
But again, it’s William’s turn to see tweets obsessing over his body. But for the most part, the actor takes it in stride. Though, there is the occasional cringe or two. To see for yourself, check out the video below.
