About

The Arizona Anti-Furry Bill Hoax or Arizona Furry Ban refers to a tweet by Roblox YouTuber Ruben Sim asking users to call "520-867-2461" and leave a voicemail in support of an "anti furry bill" that would supposedly ban furries in Arizona. The tweet, which is a joke, was posted in late February 2023 and became popularized over the following days, inspiring reactions and memes online.

Origin

Ruben Sim Furry Hate

In December 2022, Ruben Sim retweeted a post by a furry named Hunter Fox, claiming that Fox was arrested for kidnapping a 13 year old boy. He then allegedly posted a tweet writing, "I unironically hate furries," calling them disgusting, annoying and groomers. He also writes that if he were president he would have them ground into dog food and they'd probably like it. The tweets appear to have been deleted, but were archived and discussed by YouTuber[8] GDI in December 2022 (shown below).

On February 17th, the same user tweeted,[7] "starting in April, publicly declaring yourself a furry in Arizona will be classified as a misdemeanor. thank you to everyone who supported me in making this happen," garnering over 4,900 likes in two weeks (shown below, left and right).

On February 24th, 2023, the same Twitter[1] user posted, "If you want to help get furries banned in Arizona, now is the time to act. Call 5208672461 and leave a voicemail in support of the anti furry bill. If we win in Arizona we can start reaching other states," garnering over 3,700 likes and 663,000 views in a week (shown below). The tweet is a joke and there is not a real, known anti-furry bill being proposed in Arizona.

In retaliation for the tweet, furry accounts began posting their artwork in the comments sections responding to it as it went viral (example shown below).
