Aruging on the Internet refers to a series of image macros, expressing the reaction to escalating arguments online. The two primary variations of the meme always feature a man cracking his neck, a picture of a man cracking his knuckles and a picture of a hand hovering above the "N" key on a keyboard or the "caps lock" key, indicating that they are about to say the "n-word" or use all caps to express their rage.


On March 22nd, 2017, Twitter [1] user @0InTheSheets posted three pictures, one of a man cracking his neck, another of a man cracking his knuckles and, finally, a hand about to press "N" key on a keyboard. The pictures were captioned "When a black person is beating you in a argument," indicating that when the person arguing is losing to an African American person, they resort to using the n-word. The post (shown below) received more than 1,000 retweets and 1,7000 likes in sixmonths.

On September 19th, Redditor [4] FrancisGalloway posted a variation of the meme on the /r/MemeEconomy subreddit. In this variant, the hand hovers over the "Caps Lock" button. The post (shown below, right) received more than 4,800 points (97% upvoted) and 100 comments.

Have you ever been so mad at an internet argument that you go outside, do neck stretches with your red glasses, crack your knuckles on your formal outfit and reply with "n" using your gaming keyboard.
