About

This Is Who You're Being Mean To, sometimes phrased When You're Mean to Me, This Is Who You're Being Mean To, is a catchphrase primarily popularized on Twitter in the early 2020s. In tweets, people typically post the phrase along with a picture of a cute animal or creature as a way to jokingly make their critics feel bad for criticizing or attacking them.

When You Call Me An Alt-right Fascist, This Is Who You're Speaking To

On April 8th, 2023, Twitter user @dumbbitchcap[6] posted a childhood photo with the caption, "When you call me an alt right fascist this is who you’re speaking to," gaining over 18 retweets and 370 likes in three days (shown below, left). This started a quote-tweet chain in which users copied the text and posted their childhood photos. Some users who have proven controversial on the site in the past did this in earnest. For example, that same day, Anna Khachiyan[7] of Red Scare posted it, gaining over 45 retweets, 96 quote-tweets and 1,700 likes in a similar timeframe (shown below, right).
