Yeah I'd say Piers Morgan clearly isn't one of those, seeing as the thin-skinned walking penis reacts to plenty of tweets from norms.

He's mental enough for this to have about a 25% chance of being true. 

Hogan very nearly had the same vision after trying to slam the 800lbs Andre and him falling atop the Hulkster.

Hardly surprising he didn't cash in on it, Keith. Hulk must have been stricken with grief when Andre died the following morning.

Found out tonight that @kfc only follows a few people, namely:

Herb Schribner

Herb J Wesson Jr

Herb Walters

Herb Dean

Herb Sendek

Herb Albert

Geri Halliwell

Melanie Brown

Emma Bunton

Melanie C

Victoria Beckham

 

Which is sheer genius.

That frog isn't an alt-right associated thing, is it? It's been around longer than this recent movement and is just a reference to the 'that's none of my business' meme that features Kermit. Unless I've missed something where it has since been adopted by the Prison Planet crew?

I'm taking back Pepe the frog!

But yeah I don't think she's using that frog emote in the alt-right manner, her profile doesn't fit that either.

It was something to do with the Clinton crew spreading bollocks about Pepe being linked to white supremacy or some shite during her campaign. Honestly, America.

It wasn't so much Clinton's crew starting it, or all that much bollocks - Pepe does have a connection to a lot of the alt-right stuff, but only insofar as a lot of the alt-right/Trump supporting types online come from corners of the internet that lean towards spreading shitty memes. Richard Spencer wore/wears Pepe badges, and used to have a frog emoji in his Twitter handle. A Pepe avatar is usually a pretty good indicator that the person you're dealing with is a bell-end.

That said, people in the Clinton camp, and reporters close to them, did write interminable think-pieces about why Pepe was a "white supremacist icon", which went as well as any out-of-touch person trying to explain internet culture to a wider audience. That sort of thing probably lead more of that lot to start using Pepe in that context, though.

Oh I don’t disagree for one second Pat and it has been taken on by the bells, however, I don’t think I conveyed what I meant properly. From what I’ve read and watched, the creator of Pepe was pretty pissed off about the fact and it ended up being sensationalised by Clinton’s team, indicating the link to white supremacy, hence it got a lot of airtime and more nobs ‘took it on’.

Thats what I’ve at least gathered from what I’ve read and seen. Regardless, I think we can all agree... a picture of a cartoon frog, what the actual fuck.

Most of the 280 character tweets are pretty shit, and then:

A little bit of digging by someone on Reddit revealed this to be a marketing ploy and the bloke who "spotted it" is employed by the marketing firm.
