Oh No Baby! What Is You Doin??? is a catchphrase of Instagram and Twitter user Nick Joseph, who goes by the handle nicknpattiwhack_. A reaction image of Joseph saying the phrase became a meme on Black Twitter in March of 2017.


In his videos, Joseph and his friend Dan Rue (@danrue) play pranks where they pretend to trespass. The videos are characterized by Joseph's narration in which he quickly and jovially comments on the actions of Rue. On January 20th, 2017, he uploaded a video in which Rue gets kicked out of a shoe store. As he gets kicked out, Joseph exclaims, "Oh no, Daniel, what is you doin??"

On March 9th, 2017, Joseph uploaded a video of himself and Rue jumping a fence into the yard of NBA star Anthony Davis (Twitter embed shown below).

Though Joseph does not say "Oh no baby! What is you doin?" in the video, a screenshot of him in the video was later paired with the caption.


One of the earliest examples of the screenshot being used as a reaction image was posted on March 18th, 2017 by Instagram account supa_cent[1] and gained over 11,600 likes (shown below).

Soon after, the image began being reposted with various other captions on Twitter. On March 22nd, a thread was posted to Reddit's /r/OutOfTheLoop[2] inquiring about the meme's origins.
