About

Tomato Town Massacre refers to a series of memes referencing a lyric from the Fortnite-themed 2018 parody song "Chug Jug With You" in which its author Leviathan sings about scoring 10 kills in Tomato Town. Following the viral popularity of the song in February 2021, memes describing the events that occurred in Tomato Town as horrific and tragic gained popularity online.

Origin

In February 2021, the Fortnite-themed parody song "Chug Jug With You" by Leviathan went viral on social media. In the opening verse of the song, Leviathan sings about "wiping out Tomato Town" via "10 kills on the board," with Tomato Town being a location (point of interest) on the in-game map. The lyric means that Leviathan and his friend killed 10 other players in the location.
