The Brief: Gang Weed is a Facebook page known for intentionally cringey memes and image macros advocating for gamer rights and often featuring DC Comics supervillain Joker.
The Gang Weed Facebook group popularized the “gamer joker” meme format, which includes memes such as “gamers rise up” and “we live in a society.” These memes typically satirize gamers, “nice guys,” neckbeards, and stoner culture. They also make fun of these groups for their incel-like behavior, as they can be blatantly racist, homophobic, and misogynistic.
“Gamers rise up” memes, for example, are a call to action against the oppression of gamers, specifically by the world’s Veronicas, who represents women who reject gamers, and Chads, the stereotypical bros who the girls inexplicably fall for.
