In the past, Caitlin became the face of a popular meme referred to as "Christian Girl Autumn." According to Know Your Meme, the joke comes from a picture of Caitlin and a friend that was posted on Twitter in August 2019. The picture shows the two of them in some basic fall fashion with an unironic caption reading "Hot Girl Summer is coming to an end. Get ready for Christian Girl Autumn."

The picture and the term quickly drew some ire from folks on the internet.

Plenty of people responded with Karen jokes and white privilege humor. One response read, "This picture just asked for my regional manager's phone number and customer services number."

Another wrote, "This picture thinks Africa is a country and is going on a mission trip there in 2020."

Caitlin even made a good-natured response to the attention shortly after on Twitter. She posted, "If all of Twitter is gonna make fun of my fall photos, at least pick some good ones!" The post was accompanied by glamour shots.

For what it's worth, Caitlin certainly didn't seem to be impacted too negatively by her meme status. In a 2019 interview with BuzzFeed News, Caitlin wore "Christian Girl Autumn" jokes like a badge of honor.

"It doesn't bother me. It's funny! It's the world we live in now," she told BuzzFeed. "I'm white and Christian but none of the tweets were accurate. I laughed at all of it but none of [it was] true. We don't ever want to speak to the manager!"

Thankfully, we currently live in a world where Caitlin Covington can thrive and "Christian Girl Autumn" memes can still flourish well into 2022.
