'Interrupting Kanye' Meme Takes Over the Internet
With an impressive 300,000 tweets in one hour, it seemed as though everyone on the Internet chimed in after rambunctious rapper Kanye West interrupted teen queen Taylor Swift during her 2009 MTV VMA acceptance speech for Best Female Video. From the virtual landscape came an outpouring of shock and anger, resulting in the inevitable creation of an Internet sensation: the 'Interrupting Kanye'.
This new meme spans all forms; from IMs to macros, people just can't get enough of Kanye's inflated ego. Here are a few of our favorites so far:
- CSI Miami's David Caruso makes for a stunning (punning!) meme. And, if you dare: make your own CSI meme! (via money, guns, apples, d*cks)
- Youtuber FreeYourPixels was quick to make a video parody remix of Kanye disrespecting President Barack Obama during his healthcare speech. Forget Joe Wilson!
- The Moon Landing just got that much more iconic. (via kevinnuut.com)
