Man Tries To Shame 8-Year-Old Drag Queen, And It Immediately Backfired

8 months ago

Memes have become such a big part of our culture that they've transcended their status as being vehicles of inside jokes and have even been incorporated as a means of social and political commentary - just like great comedy.

The thing is though, if you're trying to make a caustic point about the state of humanity in meme form, you may want to get your facts straight.

Something this dude who tried shaming an 8-year-old drag queen on Twitter discovered.

It all started when journalist Ian Miles Cheong sent out this tweet.

In the tweet, he laments the current state of human progress and used an 8-year-old who enjoys dressing up as a drag queen as a symbol for how far we've fallen in our hopes and dreams for a better future.

But there was something wrong with the way he worded his tweet, and Twitter users were quick to point out that we didn't go to space in 1977.

Something that Cheong quickly tried to explain.

And explain some more. But people were already convinced.

People were merciless with their replies.

And others pointed out the very obvious flaws in his logic in his attempts to save face.
