But the New Jersey native isn't letting it get to his head. Instead, he is deeply humbled when he runs into guys and girls who want to take a picture with him. In fact, his personal Instagram has become a tribute to his fans that approach him on the street.
His Instagram is truly a public service to us all.
In what may be the sweetest post ever, Matarazzo explained his reasoning. "I’m starting a new thing. Every fan that stops me and asks me to take a picture with them, I will ask them to take a picture with me because they mean as much to me as I mean to them," he wrote. He declared this to be his "new trend" and he has stayed true to his word. Every selfie and caption is more heartwarming than the one before.
His overall kindness can teach us a thing or two about how we interact with each other on social media. He writes, "Thank you to those who spread kindness and positive vibes, maybe some other people could learn from your actions and kind words! I love all my fans and I'd love it even more if you all spread love to each other."
Hey guys! Thanks for all the positive comments and support! It means the world to me! What really hurts me though is the negative comments on certain photos. I know because this is my public page and I have a lot of notifications, people think that me and my friends and family can't see the negative posts, but we do. And someone's feelings will get hurt if they continue. I want my page to be super happy and it can't be that way with negative hurtful comments. Sometimes a picture is just a picture. Thank you to those who spread kindness and positive vibes, maybe some other people could learn from your actions and kind words! I love all my fans and I'd love it even more if you all spread love to each other. Thanks guys!
Last but not least, here he is singing the National Anthem before a basketball game, because why not.
