Daquan is a fictional character featured in jokes circulated primarily by the Black Twitter community, which are paired with stock photographs of young white children being scolded by an adult. The character is typically portrayed as an African American inner city youth who serves as a bad influence to impressionable young white women.

In the first week, the tweet gained over 14,500 retweets and 11,000 favorites.
On July 7th, 2014, the @YahBoyDaquan Twitter feed was launched, gathering more than 45,000 followers in the next 24 hours.
