The Brief: Memes of Drake with a large distorted mouth are becoming the standard for angry or yelling on Reddit.
The image for Drake yelling memes (not to be confused with Drake yes/no memes) comes from footage of game 4 of the 2016 NBA Eastern Conference finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. After dragging LeBron James on Twitter, Drake yelled him courtside during this game, which the Raptors won (the Cavs ultimately beat the Raptors in the conference finals and went on to beat the Golden StateWarriors in the NBA finals).
Numerous reaction images and image macro memes have proliferated from an edited version of this photo where Drake’s face has been distorted to appear extremely large, emphasizing how he is yelling. These memes generally depict someone who is overly upset about something.
