Online cartoon character Pepe the Frog appears to have been killed off by its creator in a bid to stop his image being hijacked by far-right groups.
Pepe's creator Matt Furie over the weekend depicted the frog in a coffin, mourned by other members of his Boy's Club cartoon strip.


Pepe the Frog 'is killed off to avoid being a hate symbol'

This is an actual article in the NEWS section of the BBC. You just can't make this stuff up.

Poor PEPE.


Pepe even reached out to the non-binary community recently, to no avail.


Please everyone, a moment of silence for a dead meme.

Praise KEK.

This is like when Charlton Heston blew up the Earth to prevent more "Planet Of The Apes" sequels being made. Remember how well that worked out?

This is a win for leftists that portion anything that doesn't side with them completely (100%) as "hate".

Lol! Being so afraid of a cartoon frog that you have to ask its creator to draw a comic of him dying. This is 2017 folks. Pepe has become a martyr.

Where in the article does it say the creator was asked to do this? The article is suggesting this was entirely the creator's idea or, at the least, the fanbase from Boys' Club (Pepe's origins) trying to reclaim him from the Alt Right.

Furie lamented in a recent article for Time magazine that it was a nightmare that his "blissfully stoned... peaceful frog-dude" in Boy's Club - who enjoyed "a simple life of snacks, soda and pulling his pants all the way down to go pee" - was now being used as a symbol of hate by racists and anti-Semites.

I like this guys take on it. He tries not to laugh through the whole video.


This is so absurd it ventures into the surreal.

Welcome the the reality of 2017, where memes are put to death.

Thinking of Pepe? A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Still don't see it. Just see a lot of people with mixed opinions on agreeing or disagreeing with this action. How about you link what you are talking about for a change?

That's not how memes work, this will literally have the opposite effect.

It's archived, he shut it down last year because he was receiving so much hate from the tolerant left for something he didn't even do.

Click @MattFurie in this tweet.

No evidence then it didn't happen. That's the rules of the internet. Nice attempt at an excuse after you can't prove your nonsense that directly contradicts the OP though.

The dumbest part of this, is killing him off in the cartoon will not stop him from being used as a meme.

Exhibit A:


Exhibit B:


All it will do is create a new pepe death meme lmao
