If there is something you can trust social media networks to come up with, it is in the area of generating new memes from random pictures or photos. Every month this year, we have seen a picture being turned into a viral meme: January gave us the salt bae; February gave us Roll Safe, What in tarnation, I wasn’t counting and surprised guy blinking.
We’re already halfway in the new month and there is a new meme that is currently trending on Twitter. It features a cartoon character (Saitama) from the comic series One Punch Man where he is shown in a pose where he has his hand on his chest with his head angled on the side which looks like the one people do when they are defending themselves.
Well, Twitter was set alight by the meme and people were quick to hop on the trend.

The meme became so popular, brands decided to hop on the gravy train and they used it to show some of the complaints they get.
