    The stepson of a UK billionaire on board the missing submersible exploring wreckage of the Titanic has bizarrely asked an adult star to “sit” on him in an odd Twitter exchange.

    Brian Szasz, who attended a Blink 182 show in San Diego, California on Monday (June 19) just 24 hours after stepdad Hamish Harding went missing on the vessel, appears to be finding strange ways of coping with the ongoing news cycle about the missing OceanGate Expeditions vessel.

    Twitter went wild when Mr Szasz quote-tweeted a raunchy image of a pornstar known as Brea, who tweets as @Perfexiaa.

    The woman posted an image of herself wearing next-to-nothing, standing by a bed while asking “Can I sit on u (sic).”

    And Brian quote-tweeted with “yes please!”, and ended his comment with a heart filled face emoji.

    The tweet quickly went viral amassing nearly one million views in just five hours.

    One person wrote: “Bro, this is what his step dad would want for him.”

    While another posted: “I'm guessing bro is not on the will.”

    And a third cruelly commented: “His stepdad may only have 1 bottle of water on that submarine but he’s still not the thirstiest family member right now.”

    A fourth tweeted: “I guess we all deal with trauma differently.”

    Brian also commented on another of her images, calling her “perfect”.

    Despite the crass tweets, Brian earlier asked everyone to “keep my family in your prayers”.

    The search for his stepdad and four others on-board the ship continues.

    Shortly before going on the trip, Mr Harding sent a text to former NASA astronaut Colonel Terry Virts.

    And his message could have given a vital clue as to what happened to the vessel.

    Speaking to ITV's Good Morning, Mr Virts said that the message was: “Hey, we’re headed out tomorrow, it looks good, the weather’s been bad so they’ve been waiting for this.”

    Mr Virts expanded: ““He understood the risks for sure, there’s no doubt about that.

    “He went down to the deepest part of the ocean, set a few world records … at the Mariana Trench – the deepest part of the ocean – and we talked quite a bit about the risks and the different things that they were going to be able to do."
