WTF is This Shit!? is an intenet catchphrase, popularily used in image macros.
It is used to signify disapproval of someone else’s post, when they post something that is either really stupid, badly written, vulgar, or otherwise out of place.
The first instance of the catchphrase being used in an image macro, is supposedly from December 10, 2006, uploaded on Flickr. It used a picture of captain Picard from Star Trek, making an exaggerated hand gesture, seeming to point out to something that he doesn’t approve of. This specific hand gesture became one of the defining elements of “WTF is This Shit” image macros, although it isn’t always present.
“WTF is This Shit” can also be considered as a more hostile variant of “What is This I don’t Even”.
