The popular Pepe the Frog meme has been declared a hate symbol. The image had innocent enough beginnings when it was shared as the ‘sad frog meme’ but internet users have taken it to an offensive level. Recently Twitter users have added things like a Hitler mustache and KKK hood accompanied by hateful messages to Jewish and other users. The Anti-Defamation League wrote in a statement, “Once again, racists and haters have taken a popular Internet meme and twisted it for their own purposes of spreading bigotry and harassing users.”
