About

Okay, This Is Epic refers to a tweet by American conservative political commentator and writer Ben Shapiro. It has been used on sites such as 4chan and Reddit to agree with or mock a post.

Origin

On December 20th, 2017, Ben Shapiro tweeted "Okay, this is epic"[1] in response to a Yahoo News tweet regarding the U.S. President Donald Trump threatening to cut off financial aid to countries that vote in favour of a draft United Nations resolution calling for the United States to withdraw its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Spread

After the tweet was posted, the phrase became a common way to mock Shapiro on Reddit. For example, a post pairing Shapiro with Nyan Cat in /r/okbuddyretard gained over 900 points (shown below, left).

The phrase has also seen use with non-Shapiro-related memes, usually as sarcastic commentary about cringeworthy political memes. For example, an April 16th, 2018 post to /r/dankmemes using a This Is So Sad meme had the title "Okay, this is epic," and gained over 3,200 points (shown below, left). A Retrowave Text Generator parody posted to /r/gamersriseup posted July 7th, 2018 gained over 2,700 points (shown below, right).
