Los Angeles - Ryan Gosling was deluged with "angry tweets" by people who preferred his impersonator.

The La La Land actor only joined the social networking site when he discovered there was someone else posting as him, but his followers were less than impressed by his mundane musings.

He admitted to Variety: "I got a Twitter because some guy was pretending to be me. Someone told me, 'I follow you on Twitter, you're tweeting all the time!'

"And that day that person had tweeted, 'Just had a taco downtown. Gotta love those Mexicans.' I was like, 'Alright, this has got to stop.'

"Immediately, I started getting angry tweets saying: 'You're a bad you. The other guy was a better you.'"

Ryan is best known through the 'Hey, Girl' memes - featuring a variety of random statements, even though he has no idea where they originated.
