Redditors Are Waging A Meme War Against 'Evil Nestle' And Their Ethics

The r/dankmemes subreddit is currently overflowing with the immensely entertaining Area 51 memes, but if you scroll a little deeper you'll find some memes with a little more philosophical meat. Hiding between jokes about aliens you'll find memes that go in on Nestle for their shitty business practices and negligible ethical code. The memes are a response to a comment from Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, a former CEO and chairman of Nestle. Letmathe claimed in a 2005 documentary that calling water a human right is extreme. Pair that with allegations of stealing water, and the Nestle Infant Formula scandal and you've got cause for serious meme-age. While these memes probably won't have any impact on the multi-billion dollar company, we do have to give props to memers that use their craft to raise awareness of issues like this. Here are some of the most scathing and effective memes we've seen yet.

Steve-O, from Jack Ass and stuntman fame, introduced Facebook to 'Sammy' Aug. 8 and hinted he would do something stupid with the inflatable whale.

This is Shammy. We're going to do a big dangerous stunt in Los Angeles tomorrow that will probably get me in a lot of...

His master plan, it turns out, was to climb a construction crane in Los Angeles and, with the help of Sammy, protest SeaWorld.

The Los Angeles Times reported on his stunt:

More than 80 firefighters were called to the 6000 block of West Selma Avenue about 8 p.m. on reports of a possible suicide attempt after an unidentified person was spotted on the crane, Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said.

LAPD Lt. Michael Ling confirmed that Steve-O, whose real name is Stephen Glover, was arrested and is expected to be booked on suspicion of trespassing, setting a firework without a permit, and conspiracy to commit a crime. Investigators are still determining what charges apply, Ling said.

The apparent stunt prompted annoyance and frustration among public safety officials. More than 30 LAPD officers were called to the scene, and Selma Avenue was shut down.

Glover, 41, brought an inflatable Orca with him to the top of the crane and wore a "Blackfish" T-shirt, making the stunt another of his public demonstrations against SeaWorld.

Last year, he was charged with a traffic infraction for an anti-SeaWorld stunt in which he defaced a freeway sign in San Diego. He posted a YouTube video in August 2014 showing him climbing up the freeway sign to attach the word "sucks'' after the words "Sea World."



Steve-O, the true showman that he is, video recorded a great deal of it for you on his Facebook page.

Be warned, there is explicit language. Like you would expect.

Anyone wanna bail me out of jail?
