Oh goody. Pepe was such a good frog. I genuinely liked when he appears calm and collected playin it cute but on inside, he all in red freakout and stressed. :')

I didn't know Pepe had been hijacked, I thought he'd been created by racists. Hopefully the artist can continue to shut them down.

The creator seems like a good guy. He was so disgusted by the alt right kids using Pepe as a symbol of hate that he killed off the character in his webcomic and would always speak out against the character being used that way.

I didn't know anything about this lawsuit though. Anything that fucks over Alex Jones warms my heart.

Well, that's a good start at least. However, I kind of liked seeing this icon and immediately identifying the user as absolute garbage that won't have an opinion of any merit whatsoever and completely skip them all within .8 seconds.

Just do the same with anime girls instead of Pepe. If some opinionated child on twitter has an anime girl icon, it's safe to assume that they're absolute garbage that won't have an opinion of any merit whatsoever and you can competitor skip them all within .8 seconds.

I do the same thing with them too tbh. It's always some lolita anime girl or whatever and always some stupid manchild saying something just as ridiculous.
