Andy: Taking Back Memes from the Alt-Right

Anybody who is up to date on internet culture could tell you about “Pepe“, the green frog taking the world by storm. In the past few years, Pepe has gone from a comic book where he pulled his pants all the way down to pee, to a lovable face being collected all around the globe. Users from around the globe collect “rare Pepe’s” by saving uncommon and original memes of Pepe doing poses or with added visual effects. Pepe has even had celebrity attention, being posted by Katy Perry in a very funny relatable meme. However, recently the alternative right-wing, otherwise known as the “internet hate machine”, has stolen Pepe to use in racist memes where Pepe dons a red “Make America Great Again” hat in support of controversial presidential candidate Donald Trump. Matt Furie, the creator of the comic “Boys’ Club” and Pepe himself, has shown his disdain for the subversion of his creation and fought back by joining the Anti-Defamation League and making his own anti-Trump memes. Unfortunately, Pepe may be a lost cause due to the chaotic nature of the internet. But we can continue his cool guy mood and Matt Furie’s work by creating a new meme, Andy: the wise guy!
