The Brief: The crying Wojak vs. calm Chad "we know" or "I know" meme format contrasts overreactions with underreactions.

The crying Wojak vs. calm Chad “we know” or “I know” meme format depicts two drastically different reactions. The panels of the meme with Wojak show someone who is extremely or excessively upset. The ones with Chad represent someone who is unfazed, saying “I know” or “we know” to indicate that they’ve accepted their fate. Often, the two sides of the meme contrast different fandoms, groups of people, or attitudes during different periods of time.

This format is reminiscent in style and content of Go Brrr and swole Doge vs. crying Cheems memes.
