Post  4chan vs Hot Topic... lulz
Share this album on Facebook

This was a year ago now or summat, but I just found out so I assume lots of you probably don't know about it either. I don't like 4chan that much because every time they find out I'm a girl they keep saying "BOOBS OR GTFO" and don't listen to another word I say, but this was still funny. Hot Topic is worse than 4chan, atleast 4channers are funny.

Hot topic started selling T-shirts with captions of the internet meme Rage Guy. The original call to arms is in the picture below, but for those of you who don't trust my link I'll explain a little. 4channers were angry at their memes being used by capitalist whores to make money for investors so they re-made the Rage Guy cartoon into RACE Guy, making him extremely racist haha, I won't post any of the cartoons because... well, they're really racist, but it's funny, knowing the intent. Mostly it's black people eating KFC. Lulz, so they fill the internet with racist cartoons that look exactly like the cartoon on the Hot Topic shirts, then they write to news websites, send in letters to the editor, etc, showing these new cartoons and the shirts and calling for a boycott of Hot Topic until they removed the racist shirts in question from their stores :lol:

Hot Topic posted this message on their Facebook page shortly after the 4chan assault began:

"Rage Guy is the character Hot Topic sells, see the original post from 1 year ago. The character focuses on interesting situations, check out the image gallery. Race Guy is the newest iteration posted this afternoon, today (the character everyone is talking about). Who created Race Guy? We don't know. Who created Rage Guy? We don't know. We sold the shirt because it is pop culture and the series was funny. Why not let our customers express they're interest in meme's? So now what? Well, Hot Topic is the last company to support racism. Hell, we support diversity and wear it proudly. Now that the character represents racism because of these unknown creators - we will no longer be selling it. After tonight (11/17), it will be removed from our website. Next week, it will be removed from our stores."

TITS OR GTFO. Boobs is now politically correct, so not cool. I'm sk' though, I hate those fuckers too. Seems like we grew up in pretty much the same neighbourhood though, lol. I haven't enjoyed 4chan in years, I love the Roganboard, it's such a good community. You'll get that "TITS OR GTFO" bullshit over there too though, lol. And if you post a big thread like this without a disclaimer like "...and for those of you who don't give a fuck: here's some porn." you're just asking for abuse. But that's the result of encouraging political incorrectness and free-speech. People will often say things you don't like, just gotta' toughen up and tell them how many fucks you give about their opinion.

I love the Hot Topic story, by the way. That's what you get for being a bitch to popular opinion, your individuality corrodes, and, in my opinion, you've forfeited your right to complain about it.
