Sorry I’m Not Idris Elba Goes Viral

Men Everywhere Are Sorry They Aren't Idris Elba, Idris Elba

It’s no secret that Idris Elba is the man of many women’s dreams, but this week many of the men standing in the actor’s shadow (which is kind of like every dude ever) have finally had enough. One such exhausted man with the Instagram handle @Nova_Isig even wrote a "poem," pasted on top of an Idris meme, entitled "I’m Sorry I’m Not Idris Elba."

The "Sorry" note kicked off a like-minded playful Twitter confessional session. Here are some of the best, rounded up from The Root and Twitter.
