About

Cursed Cat, also known as Angry as Fuk and ъуъ съука, refers to an image of a black cat crossing a road, photoshopped in a cursed manner. After gaining spread as a part of "ъеъ" trend among Russian users, in March 2019 the edited photograph gained popularity as an image macro on Reddit.

Origin

On November 12th, 2008, Getty Images uploaded a series of photographs made by photographer Christopher Furlong at a scene of a fatal shooting in Derby, United Kingdom.[1] One of the photographs depicted a black cat crossing the road next to two police officers.

In the following years, a cropped version of the image saw heavy use online, appearing in several news articles[2] and blog posts.[3]

In November 2018, an unknown user posted a photoshopped version of the image. In the edit, the cat appeared as a bipedal creature in a comically angry stance. The earliest found version of the image was shared by Twitter user @pinchenic on November 28th, 2018.[4] On December 1st, the edited image was posted in Facebook community Cursed Images, where it gained over 420 likes.[5]

[6] "ъуъ" in "ъуъ съука" is a made-up unpronouncable word popularized by surreal/ironic meme communities in the second half of 2018. "cъука" is a deviation of the word "сука", meaning "a bitch". The caption can be interpreted as a comical expression of annoyance.
