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.
On December 20th, 2017, Ben Shapiro tweeted "Okay, this is epic" 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.
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). A July 14th, 2018 post to the same subreddit using an image of Shapiro and multiple other memes gained over 300 points (shown below, right).
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).
