    Background

    In early morning on February 14th, 2013, Pistorius shot and killed Steenkamp at his home in Pretoria, South Africa. Pistorius claimed to have shot his girlfriend after mistaking her for a home intruder while she was in the bathroom. The following day, police arrested Pistorius and charged him with murder.

    Notable Developments

    Bail Hearing

    On February 19th, the prosecution and defense acknowledged that Pistorius shot through his bathroom door four times with three shots hitting Steenkamp inside. The prosecution argued that the murder was premeditated, while the defense claimed Pistorius thought Steenkamp was in bed and an intruder had entered his bathroom.

    On February 21, The Onion[5] published an article titled “Burglar Hiding in Pistorius’ Bathroom Figures Now Probably His Best Chance to Escape.” On March 11th, the United Kingdom news channel BBC3 broadcast a documentary about the shooting titled “Oscar Pistorius: What Really Happened?” (shown below) That same day, TIME Magazine[7] published an article on the story titled “Pistorius and South Africa’s Culture of Violence.”

  • About

    Kekfats (formerly Kekkats, also known as Miki ©ᵒᵒᵏᶦᵉ and Luptron) was a morbidly obese namefig on 4chan’s funposting board, [s4s]. He spammed a lot of froge a long time ago, got some GETs, got banned for inciting raids, and was Ananamoose’s campaign manager in [s4s]‘s first royal elections. Kekfats’ remained in relative obscurity until his picture was leaked online, at which point he blew up all over 4chan due to his unhealthy levels of cholesterol.

    Origin

    Kekfats was an [s4s] namefig who had been posting under the name “Kekkats” since mid 2013. When his picture was leaked online, [s4s] users were quick to criticize his unhealthy weight, blessing him with the nickname “Kekfats”. The first Kekfats thread was a huge success, lasting six days.[1]

    Spread

    Although the “Kekfats” meme was initially very popular all over the internet, it died down after a few weeks, and now mainly resides on [s4s]. Of note, a later thread[2] had the goal of making Kekfats’ portrait the first result when doing an image search on Kekkats.

    On March 16, 2014, Kekfats passed away peacefully in his sleep after a massive heart attack because his coronary artery was blocked up with cholesterol. In his final moments, he announced his retirement in a thread on 4chan. R.I.P. in peaces.[3] As expected, he posted on the force until he drew his last breath, though now any new posts with his name are imposters.

    Kekfats also went by some other names, and loved to lie that he and Miki ©ᵒᵒᵏᶦᵉ are two completely different people.[4]

    He’s a big (morbidly obese) guy.

    Overview

    The Mark Driscoll Controversy refers to a series of remarks and bizzare quotes made online by the megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll[1] in 2001 under the handle William Wallace II. The remarks have been recently resurfaced, gone viral on the internet and came under scrutiny by the media in the midst of controversy surrounding Driscoll.

    Background

    In 2001,[2] under the online handle William Wallace II, pastor Mark Driscoll wrote a blog post detailing his thoughts on marital relations. Among the remarks made:

    While His penis is on loan you must admit that it is sort of just hanging out there very lonely as if it needed a home, sort of like a man wondering the streets looking for a house to live in. Knowing that His penis would need a home, God created a woman to be your wife and when you marry her and look down you will notice that your wife is shaped differently than you and makes a very nice home.
    Therefore, if you are single you must remember that your penis is homeless and needs a home. But, though you may believe your hand is shaped like a home, it is not. And, though women other than your wife may look like a home, to rest there would be breaking into another man’s home. And, if you look at a man it is quite obvious that what a homeless man does not need is another man without a home.


    On April 18th, 2006, Driscoll published a book titled “Confessions of a Reformission Rev.: Hard Lessons from an Emerging Missional Church”,[3] which contains references to his online identity. On July 27th, 2014, blogspot member WenatcheeTheHatchet submitted a blog post investigating some of Driscoll’s earliest comments under this identity.[4] On July 29th, writer and blogger Matthew Paul Turner expanded on these revelations in a blog post[5] which was then referenced on August 1st in an article by Christianity Today.[6]

    On September 8th, feminist blogger Libby Anne submitted a blog post[2] detailing her discovery of Driscoll’s “penis homes” comments, causing the remarks to go viral on the internet.

    Notable Developments

    The resulting controversy was covered extensively by online news and opinion sites including The Independent,[7] Jezebel,[8] Huffington Post,[9] and MailOnline,[10] with many of the sites noting that Driscoll’s chain of megachurches had been struggling financially in recent times. The controversy was also taken as an opportunity to criticize many other comments that he had made in the past; on September 9th, vocativ published an article titled “Sexist, Homophobic Pastor Mark Driscoll’s Greatest Hits”, which detailed many of his controversial remarks.[13]

    The cartoonist nakedpastor satirized the remarks through two cartoons[11][12] published on September 9th (below, left) and September 10th (below, right) respectively.



    The news was met with backlash and mockery from the online community. On September 8th, redditor booyatrive submitted an article about the controversy to /r/nottheonion, where it has received over 2500 points.[14] On September 9th, the novelty Twitter account @PenisHomes[15] was created amidst critical comments and ridicule from Twitter users (example below).

    About

    In France They Don’t Say They Love You, They Say is a meme popularized on Tumblr which involves explaining within the context of a TV show, book or movie, or the place where the piece of pop culture takes place, “They Don’t Say They Love You, They Say,” then finishing the phrase which with a popular phrase within the fandom used to show affection or a statement those in the fandom would understand is comically not affectionate. They often follow the the phrase with, “And I think that’s beautiful.”

    Origin

    On April 14th, 2013, Tumblr user werepuppyscott[1] published a post which read:

    “In France, they don’t say ‘I Love You’. They say instead “cet homme a volé un peu de pain et je vais le chasser pour le reste de sa vie avant de sortir avec lui, je veux dire le mettre en prison”


    The French translates to “this man stole some bread and I will hunt for the rest of his life before going out with him, I mean put him in jail.” This references the plot of Les Miserables with a nod to the ship between Javert and Jean Valjean. As of September 2014, the post has gained over 35,000 notes.
