Calling All Artists: The Creator of Pepe the Frog Wants Your Help in Reclaiming the Character

Pepe the Frog is the little green character you’ve seen associated with alt-right message boards and white nationalism. As we told you before, his creator Matt Furie was devastated to see his drawing co-opted in that way. Today, at the “Never is NOW!” anti-semitism summit put on by the Anti-Defamation League, Furie explained how he is planning to take his character back.

The project has been going on for a few days now. Furie created the Twitter account @bigfroggreasy to promote the #SavePepe initiative.

Here’s where you come in! Start drawing Pepe doing things that don’t advance the ideas of white nationalism and do promote peace.

Obviously, hashtag your creations with #SavePepe.

Alternatively, send your creations to hasthagsavepepe@gmail.com.
