How does he feel about it?
In an interview with Refinery29, he spoke out.
“I know all about [Florida Man] now. I didn’t know anything about it until I started looking at the reviews… I don’t pretend to be anything but the new image of the Florida Man these days.”
The best thing to do is embrace it! After all, his story really captures the spirit of the meme.
