About

You Gotta Hit Them With the Stare is a catchphrase used in a series of reaction image macros of people staring captioned with the phrasal template "The X Stare: When Y Says Something So Z You Gotta Hit Them With the X Stare." Spawned by a version of The Fluoride Stare meme, the format gained virality on iFunny in December 2022.

Origin

The "You Gotta Hit Them With the Stare" meme format derived from the Fluoride Stare memes, circulated within conspiracy theory communities online since 2016.

On April 15th, 2016, the Facebook[1] group Flat Earth Matters shared a meme that had text in Impact font reading, "When You Mention Flat Earth And All You Get Back Is That Fluoride Stare" (shown below, left). The post gained over 650 reactions and 1,500 shares in six years. On April 21st, 2022, Instagram[2] page welding_irony posted a version that gained over 2,900 likes in two years (shown below, right).

The phrase "they hit you with the fluoride stare" spawned the snowclone. Prior to June 13th, 2022, an unknown user posted the earliest meme within the format, an image macro featuring American religious leader Joseph Smith (shown below). On June 13th, Twitter[3] user @BronzeAgeRetard made the earliest found repost of the image, used as a reaction to another post.
