Killmonger From ‘Black Panther’ Has His Own Meme & We Weren’t Ready

Black Panther has its share of intense battle scenes, but the initial fight between T’Challa and Erik Killmonger for the throne is one of the most memorable. Killmonger’s smoldering, terrifying intensity was already enough to make one victim break her retainer out of sheer thirst — and now it will live on forever through a clever and relevant new meme.

After destroying T’Challa in battle, Killmonger turns to the Wakandan people and demands: “Is this your king?” And now Twitter has made the shirtless moment into a versatile commentary on — well, just about anything. People are repurposing the quote to laugh about their own bank accounts, political turmoil, and so much more, and many of our timelines have turned into a shrine to the chiseled, furious Michael B. Jordan.

Money jokes (or lack thereof) are common.

People are using the meme to roast their parents.

It’s getting political.

It’s an effective self-effacing tool.
