Social media has anointed an unlikely new sex symbol in the form of Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey.

The Twitter sensation comes amid a devastating time for the city of Minneapolis, which has been torn apart by riots over the tragic death of black resident George Floyd, who lost consciousness when white cop Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for eight minutes during an arrest.
