After a failed attempt to reclaim Pepe previous year, creator Matt Furie released a comic on Saturday showing the frog in an open casket. It was then posted on the anonymous image board 4chan. Furie didnt immediately respond to an email seeking comment Monday. But it's exceedingly hard to tell a meme what to be. As a Hillary Clinton supporter, Furie seemed shocked that Pepe had become something he could no longer control, especially since he was now inadvertently tied to a hate symbol, and he even created comics specifically about Pepe dealing with the sad turn his life had taken.
From silly meme to hate symbol.
. There are many wonderful ideals for us to reclaim like beauty, utopianism, internationalism. The character was co-opted by the users of 4Chan and Reddit for the next decade before hitting the mainstream in 2015, when teenagers shared Pepe's likeness so many times he became the biggest meme on Tumblr.

The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is accessible through this link . The fund owned 55,599 shares of the network equipment provider's stock after buying an additional 109 shares during the period.
While Pepe began as an innocent character in Furie's unique blend of child-like wonder and dark, surrealist humor, it didn't take long before he fell in with the wrong crowd and his life took an irreversible turn for the worse. He "re-bootlegged" the internet's many manifestations of Pepe into his own work.
In June 2016, Furie said that he was proud of Pepe reaching celebrity status. When Pepe started to show up in a wave of racist memes, he initially saw it as the "natural progression of anonymous people on the internet".
In the wake of the 2016 United States presidential election, Pepe turned into a symbol for white nationalists and supporters of Donald Trump-although most uses of Pepe by 4chan users remain ironic.
If nothing else, at least Pepe's symbolic burial might allow Furie to finally move on - and perhaps create a new artistic symbol to repudiate all the zombie white supremacist frogs who've risen in the original Pepe's name.
"I think to truly understand Pepe as a cultural phenomenon, you have to understand him outside of myself as an artist".
The thing to worry about now: alt-right zombie Pepe.
