Picrew Hate refers to negative discussions and jokes about internet users that use display pictures made on the avatar generation website Picrew.me. Picrew avatars are stereotypically associated with tenderqueers, a term used for young and overly emotional LGBTQ+ people. Picrew avis and PFPs are also sometimes associated with neo-nazis and radical trans-exclusionary feminists (TERFs). A Picrew template made by creator "sangled" is often singled out for attracting users that deliver the worst takes on Twitter.


The digital avatar-maker Picrew.me was officially released by two staff at the Japanese company TetraChroma Inc in December 2018. In July 2019, the artist @Sangled on Twitter[1] posted the earliest known art from her Picrew template, gathering over 50 likes in roughly three years (seen below, left). The template has since been deleted but can be accessed via a private link.[2] On May 5th, 2020, @Sangled posted a screenshot of a Tumblr interaction with a tweet[3] that read, "words can’t describe the feeling of seeing a passion project turn into a vehicle for the most absurd shit so whenever i see my picrew out of context i just refer to this interaction." The tweet gathered over 8,000 likes in roughly three years (seen below, right).
