It’s been a bad month for turtles. First there was all the nostalgic, angry hoopla about Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Nina Turtle movie, minus the Teenage and Mutant. And now, after Reddit user “Titan_Cronus” uploaded a photo of a turtle appearing to “smack” his friend, the reptile has been turned into a misogynistic meme.
“Domestic Violence Turtle” is...unfortunate? Yeah, unfortunate. For every caption that elicits a mini-chuckle (I can’t not laugh at any variation of “Women be shoppin’”), there are 10 that are woefully unfunny and downright violent, such as, “What’s black and blue? Your face in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1..." Sigh. Remember the halcyon days of last week with Ridiculously Photogenic Guy? So pleasant.
And, in even worse news: David Spade has found the premise for his next movie.
