Actor Sally Field is not shy about landing her son a date, even if it involves completely revealing his Olympic crush to the entire world.
“Find a way,” Field told her son Sam Greisman after he revealed to her that his Olympic crush was USA figure skater and internet heartthrob Adam Rippon. But when Griesman’s way wasn’t enough for Field, she took things into her own hands.
On Friday evening, Greisman tweeted a screenshot of a text with his mother. “Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush,” he wrote, blocking out the part where he reveals his crush is Rippon.
So what did Field do? She retweeted the screenshot to her 58,000+ followers on her verified account, and TAGS RIPPON. That’s right, she straight-up called out her son, not only to Rippon, but to the world as well.
Greisman reacted just about exactly as you’d expect, simply responding “yikes” to his mom.

Rippon, who’s very active on Twitter, has not liked or responded to the tweet, but the rest of Twitter sure ate it up.
OMG, Sally! You’re amazing hahaha

Mama’s on a mission. When she’s done with this, I wonder if she can help me get 15% off my electricity bill.

While we feel for Greisman, sometimes moms know best?
