Man Who Calls Girlfriend ‘Tony Pizza’ Delights Internet: ‘Marry This Man’

A woman who shared her story of how her boyfriend calls her “Tony Pizza” as a pet name has gone viral on social media, delighting the internet.

In a deleted post on Reddit’s r/Relationship_Advice forum, a woman with the anonymous username u/Adorable_Physics4431 asked subreddit subscribers for advice. The Reddit post went viral on Twitter, receiving over 100,000 likes and 6,000 retweets.

The Redditor began his post by explaining that her boyfriend is not good at choosing pet names for her as he has called her “little slut” and “sour meat” in the past. She said her nickname for him is “little bird”.

“About two weeks ago he started calling me Tony Pizza. It doesn’t even make sense and he uses it more often than my real name. He’s obsessed. Honestly, it bothers me that he can’t even bother to come up with a nice nickname for me. I’ve had a few conversations with him about it, but he says he just can’t think of anything better,” wrote the OP.

She ended her post by saying, “I hate being Tony Pizza.”

Newsweek contacted u/Adorable_Physics4431 for comment.

Members of the Twitter community shared their thoughts on the Reddit post, loving the moniker.

“Imagine the absolute f**king high of calling your girlfriend ‘Tony Pizza’ for so long and she hates it and she posts about it online and now everyone online thinks you’re the funniest person and that you are on your side,” one Twitter user tweeted.

“It’s a shame the op doesn’t like it, because I’d like to be called Tony Pizza,” one admitted.

“Marry this man, Tony Pizza,” urged another.

One user said, “Tony Pizza is the cousin of Chuck E Cheese from New Jersey and/or the lost Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle who chose to stay in Bayonne.”

“it would be an honor to be called tony pizza,” echoed one Twitter user.

“Honestly the tony pizza is pretty good. I would have a tony pizza,” one wrote.

Another commented: “I refuse to live in a world where ‘little bird’ is a better nickname than ‘Tony Pizza’. You could be here calling him stromboli stan and living your best life.”

One asked, “Always imagine fucking a guy after he calls you sour meat, but Tony Pizza is where you draw the line??”

“Everyone is talking about Tony Pizza, but the real gem is the other moniker ‘Sour Meat,'” one Twitter user laughed.

“I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy asking him to call me Tony Pizza,” another referenced Julia Roberts’ quote in the rom-com Notting Hill.

One user tweeted, “Tony Pizza is a great nickname, and even if you don’t agree with it, you have to admit it’s a huge improvement over Sour Meat.”
