About

EXPLAIN DELEUZE TO ME OR I'LL FUCKING KILL YOU is a memorable 4chan greentext post that was turned into a copypasta following its initial appearance online in 2017. After a 4chan user posted an image of post-modern philosopher Gilles Deleuze to 4chan's /lit/ board, another user posted an agitated-sounding reply in all caps, asking for someone to "explain Deleuze" and his various philosophical concepts, including a "body without organs" and "rhizomes."

Origin

On March 22nd, 2017, an anonymous user posted an image of French philosopher Gilles Deleuze's book Difference and Repetition to 4chan's /lit/ board alongside the caption, "Was it autism?" (shown below). The post then received a reply[1] from another user asking them to explain Deleuze.
