Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose is pulling a very "celebrity" move and demanding that some unflattering pictures of him be taken off the Internet, proving that he has no idea how the Internet works. When people heard he wanted these pictures from a 2010 concert to be wiped from the Internet, people started sharing them like crazy.
The photos were taken six years by Free Press photographer Boris Minkevich. Since Internet sleuths rediscovered the images, Rose has been meme'd. Meme'd real hard.
The "Fat Axl Rose" memes have been infiltrating social media, poking fun at his music and his weight, saying things like "Oh Oh Oh Oh, Sweet pie o' mine" and "Take me down to the bakery city, where the pies have cream and the cakes are tasty." Real creative, Internet.
The whole "Fat Axl Rose" meme debacle has people wondering if Axl Rose is fair game for cyber bullying because he is famous, or if he is just being a giant baby for wanting the pictures down. At this point, Rose should probably just collaborate with Weird Al and make "Sweet Pie O' Mine" a reality. If you can't beat em, join em.
