Anti-Defamation League Declares Pepe the Frog a Hate Symbol [VIDEO]

pepeThe Anti-Defamation League has declared a popular internet meme depicting a cartoon frog to be a hate symbol.

Pepe the Frog’s beginnings were unoffensive. He is the creation of comic book creator Matt Furie, who featured the frog as a character in the series Boy’s Club beginning in 2005. The character subsequently became a beloved meme, often called the “sad frog meme” and shared with a speech bubble reading “Feels good man” or “Feels bad man.”
