How FuckJerry Steals and Profits from other people’s content
Over the years it has been a growing situation where one company has been stealing and using content of other creators while getting paid large amounts of money and not even giving said creators any sort of credit for their work.
And people are absolutely pissed about it.
FuckJerry is a massive meme Instagram account with over 14 million followers. They re-post memes without people’s permission or any monetary compensation.
Finally a lot of backlash has finally come around and people are outing FuckJerry.
These ancient screenshots are from back in the day when @fuckjerry first started to create ads around stolen jokes. It made me feel like garbage then, and it still does now, and I’m so grateful that @megh_wright has started #FuckFuckJerry. pic.twitter.com/80nPj1FxdN— Jen Lewis (@thisjenlewis) February 2, 2019
What’s funny is the trending hashtag being used #fuckfuckjerry which if this gets any worse may turn into #fuckfuckfuckjerry haha
The good news is the expose is working and other companies are taking action against Fuckjerry.
🚨 Big #FuckFuckJerry update: @ComedyCentral has pulled their ads from FuckJerry’s IG. “Comedy Central requested to have any existing ads pulled from the FuckJerry account. We have no plans to advertise with Jerry Media in the future.” https://t.co/n0VcGtNEmV— Megh Wright (@megh_wright) February 2, 2019
