Why is my image getting thousands of pulls?

I pushed a small docker image with ubuntu base image to docker hub for a personal project two days ago and somehow there are 50k+ pulls. There is nobody that knows about the project, how on earth are there 50k+ pulls?

Has anyone experienced this or know what is happening? There is a remote possibility that the acronym I used is similar to some more popular project but other than that I don’t have a clue as to how that happened.
