Why is The Wanted, band member, Tom Parker, trending on twitter? The actual worldwide hashtag that is trending is #thankyoutomparker.
Thomas “Tom” Anthony Parker, age 24, learned to play the guitar at the age of sixteen. He went on to audition for The X Factor but unlike the band, One Direction, who he had a twitter war with, did not get past the first round. Parker joined a Take That tribute band known as Take That II and toured Northern England, before joining The Wanted in 2009.
Tom Parker was bullied as a child. During one incident all of his notes were ruined, causing him to fail his exams. He ended up joining a Tribute Band and the rest is history. Tom believes in everyone and gives everyone hope.
Some of the tweets for ThankyouTomParker include:
#ThankYouTomParker for telling us that we should be proud of who we are.
#ThankYouTomParker for being amazing to us,for supporting us, for being there for us with out @TomTheWanted i don’t know where i’d be! x
Yesterday’s twitter trend was Justin Biebers #cut4Bieber. This trend seems more reasonable as fans are thanking Tom for being him verses harming themselves.
