Memes have become a viral part of the news cycle, as people boil down big stories into pictures or use a joke to help digest an otherwise horrible thing. In the midst of public, digital discussion about Brock Turner, the Stanford rapist who also happened to swim, a meme that simply says "My name is Brock, I'm a rapist" kept mysteriously disappearing off Facebook. A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to Gizmodo that they removed the original post.

Like many a meme, it likely originated on Imgur.
