4chan is up to their old tricks, but now they’ve taken on a trending pop culture bent.
Now that she identifies as a woman, she shouldn’t have been competing in the men’s division. Caitlyn won a gold metal at the 1976 Olympics in Canada for the decathlon back when she self-identified as a man.
Really it’s all very silly and right in line with 4chan’s usual antics, but they’ve managed to steamroll the prank into collecting over 10,000 signatures in a few short days.
What does this all mean? Nothing. Change.org petitions can collect all the signatures they want, it doesn’t mean the IOC has to honor any demands — nor will they’ve already announced.
Still, major news outlets have run with the story, giving 4chan the lulz they so viciously covet. Score one for the troublemakers.
And as usual, the tricksters of 4chan devour their own as well (via their 4chan subreddit).
And speaking of trolling Caitlyn Jenner, check out this trippy Family Guy joke from 2009! Spooky.
