Joe Biden had a pretty awkward exchange with a young girl after he decided to dish out some dating advice.
The viral footage of the US President took place 'during a meet and greet' after his speech at Irvine Valley College this week.
Social media are divided with the clip as some have dubbed Biden as 'Creepy Joe', while others just see him as a 'grandfather figure kidding around with a youngster'.
Watch below and see for yourself:

As shown in the clip above, Biden appears to take a photo with a young girl and her what could be her mother. The pair initially look absolutely delighted to be getting a pic with the POTUS.
However, after the photo is taken, the 79-year-old slowly puts his arm on the young girl's shoulder and opts to give her a bit of dating advice.
"Now, very important thing I told my daughter and granddaughters," Biden is heard saying.
With her back to the president, as the young girl turns around, Biden pauses and added: "No serious guys till you're 30."
"Okay," the young girl then agreed with a rather uncomfortable smile.
The footage was taken by Karen D'Almedia who wrote: "President Joe Biden grabs a young girl by the shoulder and tells her 'no serious guys till your 30' as she looks back appearing uncomfortable, secret service appears to try to stop me from filming it after Biden spoke @ Irvine Valley Community College | @TPUSA @FrontlinesShow."
He added: "Note: I took this video of myself with president Biden after his speech at Irvine Valley College during a meet & greet as well as photo ops for those who wanted them."
Twitter are currently divided with the video, with some people branding the president as a 'creep'.
"Anyone says or does what our President just did that at their job ur fired within 24 hours," one person commented.
Another added: "Does his behavior around kids ever rise to where their parent could ask police to file charges? If a random old man in my town was so handsy and creepy w my kids, I’d be looking into it."
"I'm sorry but that is not presidential. It's freaking creepy!!!!!" someone else wrote.
Although, not all were on the same page, as one person tweeted: "He sounds like he is looking out for the girl.
"Telling her to take her time. Nothing wrong with this film. I think she was confused of the statement at first cause he had to say it twice.."
Someone else said: "He's not "grabbing" he's touching her shoulder. She isn't 'uncomfortable' she's surprised and delighted.
"How creepy can you all be about a grandfather figure kidding around with a youngster? Shame on you all."
