About

Missed The Point refers to a series of exploitable 4-panel comics featuring a character preaching positivity and tolerance before becoming enraged by another character's opinion.

Origin

On May 11th, 2016, artist Shenanigansen published a new webcomic in his Owl Turd series, which featured a character wearing a heart sweater attempting to convince a protester to identify himself by the stuff he likes, rather than what he hates. After the protester reveals that he likes 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, the man in the sweater is shown being restrained to prevent him from attacking the protester (shown below). Within 48 hours, the Tumblr post gained over 78,000 notes.
