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.
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.
The same day, Shenanigansen reposted the comic in Imgur, where it gathered upwards over 29,000 points and 315,000 views in the following two days. Several hours later, Imgur user EternalSession posted a template of the comic (shown below).
That day, several edited versions of the comic were submitted to Imgur. On May 12th, user Shining1 posted a version mocking the idea of safe space in colleges, garnering more than 120,000 views and 870 points in 24 hours. Meanwhile, Redditor boldfilter reposted the original comic to the /r/The_Donald subreddit, where it received upwards of 1,300 votes (86% upvoted) in over the next day. On May 13th, user Odinn uploaded a version featuring a grandma asking her grandson if he wanted more food, gaining over 1,400 points and 140,000 views over the next few hours.
