  • 04/01/15--14:14: Lez Huarez
  • About

    Lez “OP” Huarez (40,000 B.C- 2014) was is KYM’s Chaos God of shitposting, blesséd be his name. He is most famous for his hatred of small colorful horses, rivaling even that of his associate, Captain Blubber. He is also notable of his widespread use of shitposting in the My Little Pony image gallery, typically displaying images of graphic violence and otherwise rude behavior towards those of the Brone race.

    History

    While most of his history before KYM is unknown, it is known that Huarez was originally a eldritch creation named Le’zh Horazh, materializing out of the depths of the Cancer Dimension circa 40,000 B.C. After lurking in the shadows of other dimensions for millenia, Le’zh soon discovered the internet, and began to plot its demise. Taking the form of a dark-haired Hispanic male named Lez Huarez, he infiltrated the ranks of Know Your Meme, and quickly found his target: the My Little Pony gallery.

    Huarez attacked the gallery with massive raids of then-unseen weapons he called “shitposts”, causing massive flamewars and destruction across the forums, comments, and IRC alike. It was for these crimes against brone-kind that he was caught, unlawfully arrested and later banished from KYM some time in 2014. However, several conspiracy theorists say that Lez circumvented his ban, and watches from the dreaded Eye of Cancer as his cultists (See Legacy below) do his chaotic work. As an added problem, in an ancient prophecy discovered in the depths of the Cringeworthy gallery has said that if an entry about Lez was ever created, deleting it would summon his destructive shitposting wrath, destroying KYM for all eternity.

    Legacy

    SHITPOSTSFORTHESHITPOSTGOD!”- Battle-cry of the Cult of Lez

    Lez is worshipped by millions of anti-brones, who view him as a “great liberator” from the “brone menace” and their “false ruler” Particle Mare. This group, known colloquially as the Cult of Lez, use image gallery shitposts to start flame-wars against the armies of the brones, and leave comments on Lez’s own posts as offerings to him. According to their rare and sacred texts (Lez’s comments), one day the holy alt of Lez shall return to KYM in its dankest hour, defeat Particle and the evil brones, and have all of the memes of the Internet under his control. For he who controls the memes… controls the world!

    Unfortunately for them, this potentially cataclysmic event will never fuckin’ happen! has not yet occured, as of March 2015.

    Overview

Kleiner Perkins) was a lawsuit filed by American corporate attorney and executive Ellen Pao against her former employer and venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers in May 2012.

    On May 10th, 2012, Ellen Pao filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), one of the largest most well-known venture capital firms based in Silicon Valley, California. In the lawsuit, Pao claimed that she was placed at a disadvantage in promotion by male junior partner Ajit Nazre with whom she had a romantic affair before it ended badly; the plaintiff alleged workplace retaliation and sought $16 million in lost wages and $144 million in punitive damages. Pao continued to work at the firm until October 1st, when she was allegedly fired from the firm, while KPCB disputed that the termination resulted from the plaintiff declining its offer of a new role in the management.

    Overview

    Trevor Noah’s Tweet Controversy refers to the online backlash toward a series of tweets discovered in South African comedian Trevor Noah’s Twitter history in late March 2015, following the announcement that he would become the new host of the satirical news program The Daily Show following Jon Stewart’s retirement. Many accused the jokes found in Noah’s feed as being offensive to jews, women and atheists, calling for Comedy Central to reconsider hiring Noah as the new host of The Daily Show.

    Background

    In December 2014, Noah began appearing as a recurring guest contributor on the Comedy Central satirical news program The Daily Show. On March 30th, 2015, the cable television network announced that Noah would replace host Jon Stewart following the comedian’s retirement from the show later that year. That evening, a series of tweets were discovered in Noah’s Twitter feed history that many argued were fat shaming, misogynistic and anti-Semitic (shown below).[1][2][3][4][8][9]



    Notable Developments

    Online Reaction

    Following the discovery of the tweets on March 30th, many Twitter users criticized the tweets for being ignorant and dim-witted.



    On March 31st, 2015, Redditor MoralZorel submitted several of Noah’s tweets mocking atheism and deceased author Christopher Hitchens to the /r/atheism[5] subreddit (shown below). The same day, Redditor El_Charly submitted a tweet by Noah mocking fat women to the /r/fatpeoplehate[6] subreddit.



    Noah’s Response

    On March 31st, 2015, Noah posted the tweet “Twitter does not have enough characters to respond to all the characters on Twitter.” The tweet was subsequently deleted.



    Comedy Central’s Response

    Also on March 31st, Comedy Central issued a statement defending Noah:

    “Like many comedians, Trevor Noah pushes boundaries; he is provocative and spares no one, himself included. To judge him or his comedy based on a handful of jokes is unfair. Trevor is a talented comedian with a bright future at Comedy Central.”

    In the coming days, several news site published articles about the tweet controversy, including BuzzFeed,[7] Entertainment Weekly,[10] The New York Times,[11] The Daily Dot,[12] E! Online,[13] The Guardian,[14] The Independent[15] and UpRoxx.[16]
