Recently, Katy Perry posted on Instagram that she had voted for Rick Caruso, but soon after, internet users converted her photo into a hilarious new meme format.
It is no surprise that it doesn’t take long for individuals to create a new meme format from a random word or image now that memes have taken over social media.
Similar circumstances applied to the photo Katy posted on Instagram. Its primary goal was to persuade users to cast ballots, but it quickly became a meme.
A Look at Katy Perry’s Instagram Photo
On November 7, Katy stated on Instagram that she had cast her ballot for Caruso.
“I am voting for a multiplicity of reasons (see the news), but in particular because Los Angeles is a hot mess at the moment,” she said in the image’s caption.
The musician also supported the Republican candidate by using the hashtag “Let’s go, Caruso.”
Katy Perry’s Picture Becomes a Meme Template
The singer could be seen giving the thumbs-up in front of the voting panel in one of the pictures Katy published on social media. That quickly became a template for a meme since many individuals altered the image to suit their purposes. Below are some examples of these:
Kanye West’s Notepad Had a Similar Experience
Kanye, Who Now Goes by Ye, Had a Comparable Encounter a Few Months Ago. It Happened when He Published a Picture of Himself Carrying a Notepad.
“My account is not hacked,” was scrawled on the notepad. 2.13.22.”
This was done to let his followers know he was the author of all the stuff being shared on his platform. It didn’t take long for the image to become a meme. His notepad’s contents were altered by followers, who then began sharing amusing notes in its place.
With Katy’s most recent photo suffering a similar fate, public figures will need extreme caution while posting anything online.
