If you don’t know who Eric Mays is, you are about to find out. Mays is a
Flint City Councilman
who has gone viral on the internet for the past couple of weeks for
his filterless responses, witty rebuttals
and angry outbursts during council meetings.
He’s the embodiment of “You got me messed up.”

No matter if the suit he wears is black or orange, a coalition of social media supporters are rooting for him (featuring a TikTok page dedicated to all his best moments). Take a look at 15 of the most popular Eric “MF” Mays moments that made social media fall in love with him.
