Shrek Fedora, otherwise known as Shrekbeard(a portmanteau of "Shrek" and "neckbeard") is a photoshopped reaction image of the character Shrek wearing a fedora typically used in response to posts criticizing religion on social media, referencing the “*tips fedora*” internet meme associated with militant atheism online.
On July 6th, 2014, Tumblr user gamebae posted a photoshopped picture of Shrek with a neckbeard tipping a fedora with the caption "get out of m'swamp" (shown below). Over the next several years, the post gained over 77,700 notes.
On December 22nd, 2014, the image was included in a BuzzFeed listicle titled "23 Photos That Are Either Really Good Or Really Bad." On July 25th, 2017, the @ThinkAtheist Twitter feed tweeted "Apparently the "shrek fedora" meme is the newest tend in "attacking" #atheist twitter accounts" (shown below). That tweet has since been removed.
On April 28th, 2017, Redditor Morn_sc submitted the image to /r/justneckbeardthings. On August 27th, YouTuber Onision tweeted a photo of a flooded street in Houston, Texas along with the message "There are a lot of Christians in Texas, so any of you want to explain your god doing this?" (shown below, left). That day, YouTuber %%% %%%% posted a video showcasing replies to Onision's tweet with the Shrek Fedora image (shown below). The following day, Redditor RolfIsSonOfShepnard submitted the video to /r/YouTubeHaiku, where it gathered upwards of 2,000 points (97% upvoted) and 60 comments.
On November 5th, 2017, actor Wil Wheaton replied to a tweet posted by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan about sending prayers to those affected by the 2017 Sutherland Springs church shooting. In response, many Twitter users replied with variations of the Shrek Fedora reaction image (shown below).
