    Ever thought to yourself that a meme could become so popular - or in this case infamous - to the point where it's considered a 'hate symbol'? Welp, that's the case with this frog down the riverbank. Over the course of last week, the popular meme was officially declared a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League (AFL) because of Internet users twisting it into anti-Sometic contexts.

    In a statement made by the Anti-Defamation League, "Images of a frog, variously portrayed with a Hitler-like moustache, wearing a yarmulke or a Klan hood, have proliferated in recent weeks in hateful messages aimed at Jewish and other users on Twitter." The CEO of the non-governmental organization Jonathan Greenblatt, went on to say "Once again, racists and haters have taken a popular Internet meme and twisted it for their own purposes of spreading bigotry and harassing users."
