Russians Tweet “Pepe the Frog” Meme, SJWs get Triggered!

Breitbart: Russian Embassy Tweets Pepe the Frog Meme, Upsets SJWs

The Russian Embassy in the UK upset left-wing journalists and social justice warriors after posting a picture of internet meme “Pepe the Frog” on Twitter.

“In today’s papers: pundits call on @Theresa_May to disrupt possible Russia-US thaw,” wrote the official embassy account, along with a picture of Pepe. “No trust in Britain’s best friend and ally?”

The post led to left-wing social justice warriors claiming that the Russian Embassy had just shared a “white nationalist” symbol, despite their claims being based off of discredited “evidence” featured in an interview with two notorious trolls.

“[H]i there, reporter here. are you aware of that image’s popularity among white nationalists?” responded Talia Jane, a reporter for Mic– the site that sabotaged a fundraiser for a gay military charity in October due to the fact that it was taking place at a pro-Trump art show.

 “Whatever Pepe started as, it’s now a white supremacist/nationalist dog whistle & @RussianEmbassy is tweeting it…” claimed another verified user, who also pointed out that the embassy was “‘liking’ the tweets of the trolls defending pepe.”
 Stop spreading lies. Pepe (Kek Be Upon Him) is a meme of peace,” replied one user in response to the false claims that Pepe is a “hate symbol,” while another simply commented, “It’s a fucking meme you dolt.”
 Other accounts also insinuated that Pepe the Frog was a hate symbol, seemingly unaware of the discredited source behind these claims.
