Shortly after the post, the image and variations on it began spreading through Reddit. The following day, the image was posted to /r/oldpeoplefacebook[2] where it gained over 3,100 points. On the 5th, herfavseason posted an edit making the uncle look like a Yu-Gi-Oh card to /r/bptcg.[3]

Meanwhile, the phrase became a popular joke comment on certain "extreme" posts on /r/BlackPeopleTwitter, similar to delet this. This led to two inquiry threads, one posted on /r/OutOfTheLoop[4] and another on /r/OutOfTheHoop.[5] The phrase also began appearing regularly on Twitter in the coming months.[6]
