Christopher Meloni has a loyal following of fans. Some of those are even from his days on the hit series Law & Order: SVU. During this time of social distancing and isolation because of the coronavirus (COVID-19), one fan did us all a favor by asking Meloni for a selfie, and he didn’t disappoint.

Christopher Meloni gets asked for a selfie and he doesn’t disappoint

People are bored at home with nothing to do but hope their favorite celebrities will post something new to make things better during this time. One fan of Melon’s decided to ask him for a selfie to make things a little easier on us all. He even asked again when the first request went unanswered and his persistence paid off.

“Hey @Chris_Meloni wanna give us a quick quarantine selfie to take the edge off,” a fan asked Meloni. When the first request went unanswered, the fan asked again: “@Chris_Meloni, I am once again asking nicely. Pause the news for a sec,” the fan said.

Meloni responded with some breathless photos of himself in a kilt. In the first image, he’s wearing a kilt while shirtless. In the next image, he’s sporting a shirt with some glasses and the kilt. “Quarantine Kilt. With glasses or without?” Meloni asked his fans.

Why fans are going crazy for Meloni’s selfies

People love the images of a shirtless Meloni in a kilt and they can’t seem to get enough. Numerous fans commented to let him know it too.

Fans of Christopher Meloni love the images, but some decided to have a little fun with it. “With the glasses. I’m not thrilled about the socks. Black socks might be a more stylish choice,” a Twitter user commented.

Another fan likes anything involving his shirt being off. “As long as it’s without shirt…. I’m good,” they admitted.

One fan had a specific request: “Hey Chris, can we get a WITHOUT shirt but WITH glasses? That might be the winning ticket here,” the Twitter user commented.

A fan thinks it’s hilarious that Meloni wants to know if people prefer the glasses or not. “No one is focusing on the glasses, dude,” someone wrote.

“OMG! It’s you, Elliot Stabler. Be still my beating heart,” another fan commented on Twitter.

A Reddit user wants to start a petition to bring back Elliot Stabler wearing the kilt

Meloni’s post is already making the rounds on other social media channels. One Reddit user posted about the images and joked about signing a petition to have Stabler wear nothing but the kilt. Fans seem to wholeheartedly agree with that opinion.

One Reddit user thinks Meloni and Mariska Hargitay, who plays Olivia Benson, age well. “Both him and Mariska just keep getting sexier as they age,” a fan wrote.

Another fan is ready to sign this petition. “Where do I sign?” they asked.

Some fans did have questions about what was going on with Meloni’s ears. It appears he’s wearing earrings or ear clamps of some sort. “What’s with the ear clamp things?” a fan asked.

Fans really seem to be on board for Meloni’s kilt and they hope to see more of it before this quarantine situation is over.
