Porn star Stormy Daniels released a sketch of the man she said had threatened her – and it blew up the internet.
But the social media frenzy was sparked by the uncanny resemblance of the man in the sketch to some other famous faces.

The drawing was revealed Tuesday when Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, made an appearance on ABC’s “The View.” The porn star, who claims she had an affair with President Trump over a decade ago, said she was threatened in 2011 when she agreed to go to a publication with her story of the alleged encounter with Trump.
“I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter. Taking, you know, the seats facing backwards in the backseat, diaper bag, you know, gettin’ all the stuff out. And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,'” Daniels told Anderson Cooper on CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
“And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone,” she continued.
“His face is burned in my memory,” Daniels said.
And that face, revealed in sketch she shared on “The View” set off Twitter where the comical speculations began.
“Uh is it just me or does he kind of look like Tom Brady?” ESPN’s Jemele Hill tweeted, referring to the Patriots superstar.

Others were not sold on Brady but offered up another possibility.

Plenty of other suggestions poured in on social media as the Daniels sketch took on a life of its own.
