Dumb Internet Quotes and Memes Ruining People Lives

Updated on June 11, 2020

Clive Williams is an internet researcher and writer on many genres. He has a BSc. Degree in Information Systems.

Have you ever noticed how internet Quotes and meme’s have flooded people’s smartphone and all of a sudden everybody and their pet goldfish are re-posting dumb quotes which some people don’t even know the meaning of? Some people have some of these quotes on their Social media statuses and they are not even going through what these quotes are saying. Take a look at this idiot name Karen. She has a WhatsApp account and almost everyone has something on their WhatsApp status. Then she sees one of her friends post a status which reads.

“When women love they love hard

They will give everything to make love work

But most Men are dogs

They will beat you and leave

Cheat on you and make you cry

Happiness is truly being by yourself.

Karen's Husband is Humiliated

Now, Karen’s husband is a wonderful person. He respects her, loves her and his son and takes care of them the best way he knows how. He is nothing like what the Quote that Karen steals and puts up. So now Karen’s husband George, Karen’s friends and George’s friends and family sees her status. They immediately call George condemning him of bullshit he has no idea about. Karen doesn’t remember that she also has Georges boss’s number stored in her phone and now everyone is questioning George’s character towards his wife. George sees Karen status and is steaming mad and shocked as to why she would do that. When George reaches home and speaks to his wife about it she explains to him that she was only supporting her friend morally. George then ask her if she has read the entire quote and she answers no. She only read the first two lines and then made the quote on her status. George then ask his naive wife to remove the status as it makes him look as though he is doing her wrong. When Karen goes back to look at the status. She was shocked to see what it said in its entirety. She immediately removed it and made a status explaining what the previous status was about. But guess what? Not everyone believed her last status.

Repulsive MEMEs

Today it seems like there is no boundary, no limit or borderline when it comes to internet trolling and MEMEs. People will put up and say anything these days to get a few likes, views and comments. They seldom care who gets hurt in the process of they obtain social media fame. Today everything wrong is cool and everything right seems old and outdated. There are so many bad memes out here that have crossed the limit and have gone into the category called “heartless piece of shit.” From the mocking of someone’s death, to jokes about racial disturbances, the MEMEs have no limit. But how do we categorize these offensive internet quotes and MEME’s? Should they be regularized? Does Internet Quotes and MEMEs support hate speech and if so, should persons who post any of these offensive content be banned from that social media site?

      I have a slightly different view about these memes and sayings. I believe a lot of the times, people put up a saying or quote that truly reflects what they are feeling on the inside. Karen's case is just one out of a million.

      I think it would be best though to not put anything up at all. Choosing to let others know about the happenings in your life via social media is kind of immature. If you aren't actively seeking advice from these people (which you shouldn't be doing unless they are professionals) then you should keep it in.

      Just my opinion though.

      Yeppie...there are alot of those things out there.

      My mother constantly calls me when relatives post things wanting to know what is going on...and sure enough it is a repost. Not the person themselves.

      I'm not sure what the answer is...but it can wreck havoc.

      That's one reason I don't go to Facebook like I used to, so many ignorant quotes, and yes, I think they should be banned!
