    I got a warning and my signature removed because it was apparently "extremely offensive to most people". I honestly don't even know what it all means, i just think the face is hilarious.

    My signature was four lions from the lion king, all standing in a row with the "shoop da woop" face. I chose it because it simply looked hilarious, regardless of the meme.

    Anyway, as I said, I received a warning for having this as my sig image. So what does it all mean, why is it so offensive? I though it was about lasers...i don't see how lasers are offensive. Clearly I'm missing something.

    Could it possibly be that it kinda looks like the face of a Golliwogg?

    It's yet another load of pointless crap, that's what it is.

    Shoop da woop is meme god. You've seen the Lazer collection 1 and 2, yes?

    Because people are sensitive babies. Also they probably had blackface on.

    Have you irritated any mods lately? It's often an act of retribution.

    Well, this thread will end well!

    And it's not retribution, the meme is deemed inappropriate and thusly references to it are removed.

    Not really that hard to grasp.

    NEVER FORGIVE NEVER FORGET

    Racism even in a somewhat ironic fashion really gets some people going. A lot of people are oblivious to the shoop da woop / racism connection. It's pretty harmless but I guess it upset enough folk.
