Everybody Hates Chris is an American semi-autobiographical sitcom based on the teenage years of comedian Chris Rock. It premiered on September 22nd, 2005 on The CW. The series has immense popularity in Brazil, known as Todo Mundo Odeia o Chris, with fans continuing to share quotes, catchphrases, scenes and memes of the show's years on social media.
The series Everybody Hates Chris takes place in the 1980s and portrays the protagonist's difficult childhood in Brooklyn, New York. The show was created by the Comedian Chris Rock and Ali LeRoi, premiering on September 22nd, 2005, and running for four seasons before being concluded on May 8th, 2009.
Everybody Hates Chris has an approval rating of 95% on the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes. The show was also elected as one of the best 10 television shows of 2007 by the American Film Institute.
The show's online presence began in the format of clips posted by fans on YouTube in 2008. For instance, on March 27th, 2008, user @tobidotman shared a scene in which Chris is trying to get an invite for a "spin the bottle" party game. The video garnered 1 million views and 2,100 likes in 14 years (seen below).
In Brazil, the series was translated as "Todo Mundo Odeia o Chris," first airing on RecordTV in October 2006 and, as of 2023, reruns are still regularly broadcast on Sundays due to its immense popularity in the country. The series won the heart of the Brazilian audience, as it portrayed relatable issues like financial difficulties, living in dangerous neighborhoods, teenagers having to work from an early age and much more.
The website Anti Cult explained in an article that the family in the series could have also been identified as a "Brazilian family in some city in Brazil." On November 15th, 2020, Twitter user @ajclassic created a thread diving into the reasons behind the show's extreme success in the Latin American country. His tweet received 157,300 likes and 24,100 retweets in three years (seen below).
The show was so well received in Brazil that the actress Tichina Arnold, who plays Chris' mom Rochelle, visited the country at least four times, as she explained on February 27th, 2020, during an interview for A Little Late With Lilly Singh. The full interview was uploaded on YouTube, garnering 231,353 views and 14,000 likes in three years (seen below).
Tyler James Williams vs. Brazilian Fans
Todo Mundo Odeia o Chris is so widely loved by Brazilians that some of them flood all social posts of the actor who plays Chris, Tyler James Williams, with Portuguese catchphrases from the dubbed version of the show. The actor addressed his opinion of the Brazilian fans in a March 2016 interview for The Rich Eisen Show, saying "I love Brazil, you guys are amazing, but I don't know what's going on there, it's so confusing." The full interview was uploaded on YouTube, garnering 25,000 views and 343 likes in seven years (seen below).
The willingness of Brazilians to keep commenting on the actor's social media account made him write a message in Portuguese on September 16th begging Brazilians to stop flooding him with comments about the show. The Twitter post (seen below) reached 40,900 likes in 24 hours.
This event led to Tyler James hiding his comment section on Instagram for many years to avoid the flood of Brazilian comments (examples of the comments seen below).
Terry Crews Memes
The American actor Terry Crews, who plays Chris' father Julius in the show, was made into a notable meme on September 9th, 2016, after Twitter user @MrDanielCabral shared a picture of Crews in his wallet, which he placed there to remind him not to spend money frivolously (seen below, now removed).
The success of the meme turned Crews's picture into an image macro meme, especially with Brazilians, with overlay text referring to ways of saving money. For instance, the catchphrase in Portuguese "Se eu não comprar nada, o desconto é maior" (If I don't buy anything, the discount is bigger) is often used alongside pictures of the actor. Facebook user @ReinaldoGottino shared the image macro on November 24th, 2017, garnering 3,500 likes and 737 shares in six years (seen below).
One of the show's fictional products, known in the Brazilian version as "Produtos Ivone," is often used as a template for memes about characters and celebrities that never age. For example, in this Memeroid meme posted by thaislla on January 10th, 2014, she uses a scene from the show in which Chris' mom Rochelle is selling a product that offers rejuvenating abilities, using Robert Pattinson from Twilight as a reference (seen below).
Meu Marido Tem Dois Empregos (My Husband Has Two Jobs)
"Meu marido tem dois empregos" is a recurring catchphrase said by Tichina Arnold's character Rochelle in the Portuguese version of the show. It translates to "My husband has two jobs," implying she doesn't have to deal with stressful situations. A Portuguese version of the scene was uploaded to YouTube on February 3rd, 2011, receiving 55,695 views and 350 likes in 12 years (seen below). The catchphrase also was popularized as an image macro meme in 2013, using Rochelle's face with overlay text.
Cara Ela Tá Tão Na Sua (Dude, She's So Into You)
In the second episode of the first season, "Everybody Hates Keisha," Chris is explaining how his best friend was always supportive every time he would interact with a girl by saying "Dude, she's so into you." The catchphrase was turned into a copypasta meme, being one of many used to flood all of the actors' social media when they post a picture with a female friend or partner. For instance, iFunny user @otaldomello shared a screenshot featuring Vincent Martella, the actor who plays Chris's best friend Greg, in an Instagram post with a girl, with the comment section filled with the Portuguese quote "Care ela tá tão na sua." Uploaded on 29th, 2020, the post received 64 likes and 3 comments (seen below).
