Kirby's Human Feet refers to a piece of fan art of the Nintendo character Kirby drawn taking off his classic pink shoes to show human feet. The art inspired disgust on social media, as well as media attention and more drawings of Kirby without shoes.
On March 17th, 2017, Twitter user @MarieBlue05 posted four images showing Kirby taking off his shoes to reveal human-like feet. The tweet gained over 4,700 retweets and 5,800 likes.
After a week of spreading slowly through Twitter, the tweet started gaining widespread attention after Kotaku posted an article about it on March 23rd. Kotaku noted that the question of whether the pink items at the bottom of Kirby's design were his shoes or feet since at least 2006, when an IGN thread investigated the question. Paste covered it the following day. Meanwhile, some Twitter users reacted to the viral drawing with disgust, while others began drawing their own fan art of Kirby with feet (shown below).
