If You're From This Area, Shut The Fuck Up refers to an image macro and reaction image of a world map circulating North America and European countries with the overlay text "If you're from this area, shut the fuck up." The meme gained popularity in late February 2021 as a way to mock people from Europe or North America on social media, arguing that they shouldn't engage in the conversation at hand, often used in geopolitical debates.
On October 22nd, 2020, the Facebook meme page Wacky memes for wiseguys posted the first meme featuring a world map in which North American and European countries are circled, accompanied by the caption "If you're from this area, shut the fuck up." The post received 102 likes and 47 shares in three years (seen below).
A year later, the meme was uploaded on Twitter and started to be used as a reaction image in response to geopolitical content. For example, Twitter user @CryptoHubKE shared the meme in a thread about the U.S. government's support of El Salvador to reduce the proliferation of gangs. The image was posted on April 11th, 2022, as a response to the United States' involvement in other countries' affairs. The post garnered 103 likes and 11 retweets in a year (seen below).

Another case of the meme being used was posted on January 20th, 2022, by Twitter user @takemeout. The creator posted the image macro in response to a quote from the President of the United States Joe Biden in which he says "Everything south of the Mexican border is America’s front yard.” The post received 130 likes and 11 retweets in a year (seen below).
