It isn't every day you see Mob Psycho 100 trending online, and it is pretty rare to see it go viral when it isn't in season. The hit show may be one of the bigger titles in the industry, but it takes something big to get the fandom buzzing about Mob Psycho 100 all at once. With that all in mind, you can see why fans were all surprised to see the show trending on social media this afternoon, and it is all because of a certain tweet sent by Eric Trump.
For those out of the loop, Eric Trump sent out a tweet earlier today accusing Google of manipulating Americans. Trumps, who is the son of current U.S. President Donald Trump, felt it was suspicious that Google Images doesn't feature any photos of real-life mobs when the term is searched. Instead, it shows colorful stills from a TV show... and that show is Mob Psycho 100.
"Google is once again trying to manipulate Americans. Type “mob” or “mobs” into google and watch what comes up. Do the same on any other search engine," Trump tweeted.
