About

Absolutely Barbaric refers to a variation of the Absolutely Disgusting image macro series that features an illustration of a Roman soldier captioned "Absolutely Barbaric." It was initially used in reaction to examples of one person trolling or owning another, but in early 2017, spiked in popularity as a reaction image to something the poster thinks is improper food or life etiquette.

Precursor
