The animation was posted to Instagram in January 2023 and became the subject of memes and reactions in March after going viral on TikTok and Twitter when a user described the animation as Spider-Man taking "devious reptilian backshots" from the Lizard, meaning the Lizard is having sex with Spider-Man from behind.

But now this art lives only in my heart. And it doesn’t matter what they do with her anymore. I don’t care if they’re selling it. I just expressed my art, and I’m at peace with it" (shown below).
