Forgive English, I am Russia was a copypasta where the poster would tell a story, often outrageous and explicit in nature, in broken English, not to be confused with Engrish.


The copypasta originated in February 28, 2011 on a thread[1] in the forum[2] by someone who goes by the username, Tank107[3]. In the thread, Tank107, in broken English, says to be a very religious, presumably Christian, closet homosexual studying Fashion at an university in the United States. In his post, Tank107 describes his same-sex relationship with an American who is also studying Fashion and his guilt of being gay. Unable to take said guilt any longer, he called his mother in Russia and came out to her. Tank107 and his lover felt embarrassed about the experience and Tank107 still felt guilty about his homosexuality. Despite that, he continued his relationship with his American lover.


The title of the thread, “Forgive english, I am russia”, has since spread to 4chan[4] with many variations appearing such as “forgive me I am Russia”. Earliest evidence of spread to other websites was in 2012 on 4chan’s notorious /b/[5] board and on Railpage Australia’s MSTS General Discussions[6] and Melbourne Suburban[7] forums in May 2011.
