Blobby N Friends "I'll Get That Asshole" Comic refers to a strip by webcomic Blobby N Friends in which a woman is walking and a lecherous-looking man says "Hey beautiful, what's your number?" The woman, carrying the titular blobfish, looks uncomfortable and the blobfish says "I'll get that asshole" as it pulls out a knife. The comic was criticized and parodied over a year after it was first posted by social media users who felt that the comic artist had inadvertently made the protagonist of the strip a bad guy, leading to a situation similar to the New Guy backlash.
On June 4th, 2019, Blobby N Friends posted a comic in which a woman walking with the titular blobfish Blobby is approached by a man who appears to catcall her, saying "Hey beautiful, what's your number?" Blobby, seeing its friend is in distress, says "I'll get that asshole" while pulling out a knife. The comic gained over 2,600 notes on Tumblr and over 750 retweets and 3,100 likes on Twitter.
The comic did not begin generating backlash until over a year later, when it was rediscovered and criticized for the protagonists' violent reaction to a catcall. On September 6th, 2020, Twitter user @reviewlhu quote-tweeted the comic, comparing it to a strip by Tom Preston in which a bear wearing a fedora goes to attack a person taking skeezy photos of a cosplayer with a bat, gaining over 40 retweets and 360 likes (shown below, left). User @TheHinduDindu quote-tweeted the comic later that day, writing, "how do you manage to look like the bad guy in your own damn comics," gaining over 450 retweets and 4,900 likes (shown below, right).
Other users created parodies of the comic satirizing the strong reaction of the blobfish. User @mediissoccus posted a parody in which the blobfish gets stabbed in the last panel, gaining over 230 retweets and 2,300 likes (shown below, left). User @dawndeera posted a parody where the girl from the Blobby comic and the bear from the Preston comic join forces, gaining over 80 likes (shown below, right).
