Peter Dutton in US contacted for AU leadership position on social media

A Peter Dutton in the US was bombarded with messages by those who mistook him for the Federal Liberal Member of Parliament Petter Dutton in Australia. The 30-year-old popcorn sales manager from Texas, whose Twitter handle is @PetterDutton5, would never have expected that one day he would be contacted by hundreds of people—messages of both support and criticism—regarding the leadership position of the Liberal Party in Australia. “I wish the people of Australia would look at my profile and realize I'm a 30 yr old black man before sending me tweets and DMs," a post on his Twitter profile read.
