Pepe the Frog Meme Branded a ‘Hate Symbol’
Online cartoon Pepe the Frog has been added to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)’s database of hate symbols.
Other logos cited as offensive by the ADL include the Swastika and the “Blood Drop Cross” of the KKK.
The anti-bigotry group said “racists and haters” had “taken a popular internet meme and twisted it”.
Pepe has recently been depicted as Adolf Hitler and a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
