What’s up, people? Sorry for the delay in posting today, but let’s get started with a funny hashtag from last night. The large protester from the Milo Yiannopoulos and C.H. Sommers talk the other night ended up trending early this morning. In fact, she’s spawned a lot of talk all over the internet and is now known by the moniker of Trigglypuff.
On April 25th, 2016, student protesters began loudly shouting at speakers during “The Triggering” event held at UMass Amherst, with many accusing the hosts of “hate speech.” Among them was an enraged female student who was recorded repeatedly yelling while flailing her arms at host Christina Hoff Sommers. On April 26th, 2016, the campus news site Campus Reform posted an article about the incident and uploaded a recording of the event to YouTube, gathering over 786,000 views within 48 hours.
Geez, that’s a lot of views. Almost as big as Trigglypuff herself.

I forgot to hashtag that one, but I think you get the idea. In case you want to see more classics, head on over to the tag itself. This person seems like a parody persona, but they’re actually being legit. It’s getting harder and harder to separate the Poe’s from reality at this point. Who will be the next SJW to become a living meme? Only time will tell.
