About

Gia Crying refers to a scene from the pilot of the HBO teen drama Euphoria, where protagonist Rue's younger sister Gia (played by Storm Reid) finds Rue unconscious and starts crying. The meme is typically used as an image macro or reaction image to depict someone's reaction to drug use and is often used to ironically dramatize an event.

Origin

The pilot episode of Euphoria aired on June 16th, 2019, and saw Gia (played by Storm Reid) finding an unconscious Rue (played by Zendaya) and crying (seen below).[1]



The earliest known use of the image as a meme or reaction image is a February 7th, 2021 post by X[2] user @Xian_Bell that read, "You pop one pill and yo friends who only smoke or drink be in the corner looking at u like this 🙄." The post gathered over 120,000 likes in two years (seen below).
