You know how some people laugh when they’re nervous or anxious? Yeah, that’s us right now with these memes. 2020’s latest little surprise for us has been protests and riots in response to the tragic murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Accordingly, people have taken to the streets of major cities to protest police brutality and racism toward Black Americans. No one really knows what this all will amount to…revolution? More major government crackdowns? Whatever it is, we just want y’all to be safe.
And of course, if you plan to join the protests, be careful and wear a mask, because COVID-19 hasn’t forgotten about us!
The people disobeying lockdown orders right now are like the kids in your fourth grade class who wouldn’t follow the rules so the teacher kept punishing the entire class. So just remember, the more y’all keep breaking the rules the longer we all have to be in lockdown!
Now scroll down if you want to see some incredibly cringe-inducing posts, but honestly, we would understand if you don’t.
It’s probably safe to say that most people aren’t taking this whole quarantine thing very well, but we grin and bear it for the greater good of humanity. On the other hand, while most of us are doing the right thing and obeying stay-at-home orders, there are a select few ruining it for everyone else.
Exhibit A: these protesters, who felt it’d be appropriate to march to the Ohio Statehouse Atrium and demand that lawmakers reopen nonessential businesses to the public.
If your first thought was, that is an incredibly stupid idea, you’d be correct, and the following memes and photoshopped pics display that sentiment perfectly.
