The 10 worst memes of 2012
9) Insanity Wolf
What started off in 2009 as a hilarious macro of a rabid-looking wolf doing crazy things—a canine version of Chuck Norris—devolved into a series of rape jokes in 2012.
“I probably realize that people will defend the meme as being an exaggeration,” wrote user katyblerg on the feminist-oriented r/femmit, “that its supposed to be outlandish and offensive because its ‘Insanity Wolf’… but as a woman, i see something like that thats supposed to be humorous and about rape, and i hate it. Am I alone?”
User Metaphoricalsimile agreed with her in yet another post, this time posted to r/ShitRedditSays, which highlighted more than 300 instances of Insanity Wolf murdering and raping women and children. Hilarious!
