Wrong Peter Dutton

"Black Peter Dutton" From Austin, Texas Has Been Flooded With Support And TBH We'd Have Him As PM AAP/Twitter

Peter Dutton has never been so popular on social media - and we're not talking about the man who wants to be Australia's next prime minister.

A 30-year-old American bloke who shares the same name as the former home affairs minister has been inundated with messages - both supportive and hateful - on Twitter since the leadership move against Malcolm Turnbull began.

"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," @PeterDutton5 posted on Thursday morning.

Mr Dutton from Austin, Texas, was subsequently inundated with support from Australians.

"You'd get my vote! Just watch your citizenship when you get elected ... that's a whole different drama. #vote1dutton," one person tweeted.

"Make this guy our next prime minister!" another posted.

The 30-year-old told AAP he was "enjoying" his new-found fame and that Australians had been "more than pleasant" after they realised he wasn't running for the Liberal leadership.
