About

Plebcomics is a webcomic blog known for its satirical commentaries on various stereotypes and rhetorics associated with the social justice activist community on Tumblr. In December 2014, the creator of the series was doxxed by critics who posted her personally identifiable information on the microblogging and social networking site.

History

The title of the blog is a blendword that combines the Internet slang term "pleb" (short for "plebian") and webcomic. Due to an alleged hacking incident[9] and subsequent mass removal of posts that occurred in December 2014, the creation date of the Plebcomics[1] on Tumblr remains unclear; however, the earliest known mention of the webcomic can be found in Tumblr user Neonationalist's post submitted on February 16th, 2014. On March 9th, 2014, Redditor hydra877 posted a Plebcomic illustration mocking hypocritical fat acceptance activists to the /r/TumblrInAction[6] subreddit, where it gathered more than 800 votes (96% upvoted) prior to being archived (shown below).

On October 29th, Redditor Greyathus submitted a Plebcomics webcomic mocking the GamerGate Wikipedia article to the /r/KotakuInAction[5] subreddit, where it gained over 1,200 votes (91% upvoted) in the first two months.

Following her popularity on Reddit, Plebcomics artist Abbysucks made two instances of AMA threads on TumblrInAction-related subreddits in May 2014[11][12] in which she answered various questions about her.

Creator Doxxed

On December 7th, 2014, the Plebdox Tumblr[4] blog was launched, which posted the personally identifiable information of the Plebcomics creator. That day, the Plebcomics blog was removed and the creator's personal blog "AbbySucks"[3] announced that she had been "forced to resign" from her job following the release of her information.

After regaining control of her site that day, over 30 comics were reuploaded, including illustrations mocking overweight racists (shown below, left), misogynistic men's rights activists (shown below, middle) and hypocritical "social justice warriors" (shown below, right). On December 8th, threads about the doxxing were submitted to the /r/KotakuInAction[7] subreddit and the /co/[8] (comics & cartoons) board on 4chan.
