Fictional Character “Daquan” Fuels Racially Charged Memes [Photos]
If you’re anything like this writer, the sheer wonderment of why a name as racially specific as “Daquan” was trending on Twitter was enough to look into the latest meme craze. What followed was something more ridiculous than anyone could imagine.
Depending on your stance, Daquan could be the protagonist or antagonist of these fictional scenarios. But the story ends a similar way each time. Timelines were full of pictures of distraught white mothers, fathers, and husbands appalled by the thought of their loved one being caught in Daquan’s web of deceit.
The trend resulted in mounds of comedic, but extremely insensitive tweets. Laugh at your own risk in the gallery after the jump. Share your thoughts in the comments.
