What Is The Food Gatekeeping Copypasta That Thinks You're 'Not Really Hungry Like That TBH Bro?' The 'I Find MFs Like You Really Interesting' Meme Explained
If you have seen a video of someone engaging in an egregious act of food gatekeeping, you are likely seeing an example of a viral copypasta created by Instagram comedian @damndomeatsass. His antics have inspired a hilarious meme trend where a request for information about a meal is rebuffed with the aid of an out-of-pocket response sure to leave you wheezing. Here's the lore behind the viral I find MFs like you really interesting bro meme.
Where Does The Original Meme Quote Come From?
In 2021, Instagram comedian Dom began posting "bait-and-switch" style food gatekeeping videos, where he would post delicious food to his Instagram and rebuff anyone asking for details on where he got it. A similar video to his viral copypasta was posted in April 2021, as seen below.
However, the meme in question can only be accessed via reuploads as seen below here. After Dom posted a photo of a seafood pasta, an unassuming friend asks him where he got his food, to which Dom responds with a series of voice messages recorded as he ate his meal.
How Did The Food Gatekeeping Voice Messages Become A Copypasta?
Later in 2021, a Twitter user posted an image of him riffing on Dom's bit by sending a message that transcribed Dom's viral food gatekeeping voice messages. The format became the dominant way the meme spread in consecutive months.
