Pepe The Frog Creator Kills Off Internet Meme Co-Opted By White Supremacists

Good job, white supremacists. Look at what you've done to Pepe!

The tl;dr version of the story:

Matt Furie created Pepe the Frog in 2005. Pepe was co-opted by white supremacists. Furie tried like hell to save Pepe and take him back, but it didn't work. So instead, Furie killed his creation. Rest in peace, Pepe.
