Icon81 Pepe the Frog Is Dead: Creator Kills Off Meme Absorbed by Far-Right

Pepe the Frog, the meme that was transformed from a "once peaceful frog dude" into a symbol commonly appropriated by racist or bigoted internet memes, has croaked.

The author is dead. You can't kill a meme just by declaring it shall be so. Honestly, I didn't even know this was a thing until it "died."

On my way home from work I saw a pickup truck with decals plastered across the tailgate. The first said "Mad Max built Trump's America". The second was Pepe the Frog. The third was Trump in front of an American flag.

I'm not sure who "Mad Max" is -- I'm assuming it's not referring to the movie character.
