Meme of the Day: #CNNBlackmail

Over the July 4th holiday, CNN hunted down, identified and threatened to “dox” a Reddit user for his satirical GIF of President Trump body slamming a CNN logo to the ground at a WWE event.  To “dox” is a short hand term for outing a person on the internet by posting documents or private information such as social security number, address, cell phone, family information, and social media profiles.

BuzzFeed has the Reddit user’s original satirical GIF here.

As CNN reported, “Reddit user “HanA**holeSolo” first shared the GIF last Wednesday of Trump pummeling a wrestler with CNN’s logo imposed on his face. CNN could find no earlier instance of the GIF. The GIF was later edited into a video with sound and tweeted by the President on Sunday.”

CNN proudly reported that its intimidation worked:  “On Tuesday, “HanA**holeSolo” posted his apology on the subreddit /The_Donald and deleted all of his other posts.”

The meme war against CNN has intensified.  And as one Twitter user going by the name John Gault tweeted: “They can’t dox us all.”  Welcome to #MemeWars.
