“Stop killing buffalo for their wings” (fake protest sign)

"Sop killing aligators to make Gatoraid” (misspelling “alligators” and “Gatorade"). is a jocular—but fake—protest sign that has been printed on many images. The original sign read “I’M NOT REALLY HAPPY ABOUT THIS” and was carried in a November 2011 pension strike in the United Kingdom. The photo taken by photographer Stefan Rousseau.

It’s unknown who did the photoshop to change the words, but the meme started in March 2018, with the intent to ridicule allegedly stupid and crazy liberal protesters. “STOP KILLING ALLIGATORS TO MAKE GATORADE” was posted on Twitter by connor on March 4, 2018. “STOP KILLING ALIGATORS TO MAKE GATORAID 😤😤😤” was posted on Twitter by “empty” later on the same day. The sign soon became a popular meme, with many different variations of the words.

Know Your Meme
Stop Killing Alligators to Make Gatorade
About
Stop Killing Alligators to Make Gatorade refers to a hoax featuring a photoshopped image of a protestor with a sign edited to read “Stop Killing Alligators to Make Gatoraid” (sic). The image was shared by some conservatives online attempting to mock liberals and was covered by Snopes.
Origin
The photoshopped image first appeared online on March 5th, 2018. It was posted to Imgur by user gutkhababa, where it gained over 3,700 upvotes (shown below, left). The original image was taken at a strike in London in 2011, and read “I’m really not happy about this” (shown below, right).

Wikipedia: Gatorade
The Gatorade Company, Inc. is an American manufacturer of sports-themed beverage and food products, built around its signature line of sports drinks. Gatorade is currently manufactured by PepsiCo and is distributed in over 80 countries. The beverage was first developed in 1965 by a team of researchers led by Robert Cade. It was originally made for the Gators at the University of Florida to replenish the carbohydrates that the school’s student-athletes burned and the combination of water and electrolytes that they lost in sweat during rigorous sports activities.

Originally produced and marketed by Stokely-Van Camp, the Gatorade brand was purchased by the Quaker Oats Company in 1983, which, in turn, was bought by PepsiCo in 2000.

‘Stop Killing Aligators To Make Gatoraid’ (’Alligators’ and ‘Gatorade’wink! They believe this insanity and these people are walking among us daily! Same people are promoting ‘#KillNRA’ and/or have bumper stickers: ‘Save The Whales’ & ‘Pro-Choice.’ Baby killers shouldn’t have guns!

Is a ‘Stop Killing Alligators to Make Gatorade’ Protest Sign Real?
A photograph from a 2011 labor strike in London was repurposed to spread a goofy meme about Gatorade being made from real alligators.
