A 23-year-old Washington man had all of his guns seized under red flag laws last week over a "one ticket for joker please" meme he shared on Twitter as a joke.
In the run up to the Joker movie's release, many people shared satirical memes of people holding guns with the text "one ticket to joker please."
As Know Your Meme notes:
Tickets to Joker, Please is a phrasal template used to caption photographs of people the meme's author believes to be the stereotypical audience for the 2019 comic book film Joker. These images generally showcase men in fedoras, infamous mass shooters and depictions of internet trolls.The funniest ones were the memes with people holding guns, though they appear to have all been deleted for being too edgy.
Here some other examples:
From KIRO 7, "Guns seized from Redmond man after 'concerning Twitter posts' over new Joker movie":
Officials seized several guns from a 23-year-old Redmond man after he made "concerning Twitter posts posing with weapons and referencing the Joker movie," police said.
He does have a concealed permit license issued in May for two handguns, but his license has since been revoked.Police searched his entire Twitter history and found a few posts from 2017 devoid of context with him incel-posting about hating women and used that to bolster their case.
Officials found other posts where the man claimed to be an incel, which is short for involuntary celibate, and posts that illustrated a "history of violent and disturbing social media threats directed towards women," documents said.Every indicator suggests those posts were also jokes.
"Kill all men" was a very popular hashtag in the past before Twitter started cracking down on it more recently. Nobody had any of their rights taken away for tweeting it.
There's a reason that for over two centuries we gave people the presumption of innocence and required a trial and a conviction to take away someone's rights. That's all been flipped on its head due to red flag laws and pre-crime hysteria and now police are seizing people's guns over memes they don't get.
