But Go Off I Guess refers to a snowclone that grew popular on Tumblr in March of 2018 with the format "OP did (X), but go off I guess." The snowclone parodies a type of call-out post on the site in which a user will point out flaws with a particular poster or person that other people are enjoying and end their post sarcastically with "but go off I guess," a phrase made to feel others bad for enjoying the post or person. The snowclones tend to include fantastical references to pop culture or mythology.
The snowclone is a parody of a type of post popularly used on Tumblr and Twitter in which a person will point out flaws with a popular thing, then end their post with "but go off I guess," essentially sarcastically saying "whatever makes you happy" while voicing their clear distaste for the topic (examples shown below).
In February-March of 2018, the phrase began seeing use in parody posts on Tumblr. One of the earliest popular parody posts was posted February 25th, 2018 by user ladphobia. It read "my friend keeps saying “chicken little is a lesbian but go off i guess” in Real Life and without being provoked, gaining over 25,000 notes (shown below).
In the following weeks, the parodies began becoming more popular on Tumblr. Popular examples include a post by luthoring mocking Catholic history that stated "OP SIDED WITH POPE CLEMENT VII EVEN THOUGH KING HENRY VIII HAS THE DIVINE RIGHT BUT GO OFF I GUESS LMAO," gaining over 13,000 notes (shown below, left). Another post by user zolo referencing Ratatouille gained over 54,000 notes (shown below, right)
