After the Friends’ reunion, Matt LeBlanc went viral, but not for his loved character Joey Tribbiani on FRIENDS but for a different reason this time.
The actor, 53 years old, was known by the social media as the ‘Irish Uncle’ for his dresses, crossed arms and facial expressions.
“Matt LeBlanc is your uncle at a wedding that buys you too many beers and gets your name confused with your siblings while he lovingly rolls his eyes at your aunt,” one tweeted.

One tweeted: ‘Matt LeBlanc looks like your uncle who will still be sharing the Matt LeBlanc meme on Facebook 6 months from now.’
There were many tweets in general but the revelation of the fact that Joey (Matt LeBlanc) dubbed Irish Uncle is shocking to a lot of people.
And in case you’re not quite familiar to Irish uncles, don’t worry: they are very similar to all or at least to the uncle’s Platonic ideal: stupid, slightly backward and, especially, not against pinting. The actor of Friends has still to speak publicly of its new status as the Irish uncle official, but we truly hope that somebody said so to him.
