By William Hicks | June 27, 2017
Matt Furie is resurrecting Pepe, after unceremoniously killing him off in his comic book Boyâ€™s Club. Furie wanted to distance himself from the goofy green frog after 4chan trolls used Pepe for dark purposes, like photoshopping him into Nazi uniforms while operating concentration camp ovens.
The trolling got so bad/effective that Hillary Clintonâ€™s campaign publicly denounced Pepe and the frog was classified a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League. Throughout the whole ordeal, Furie has been trying various methods to wrestle control of Pepe from right-wing trolls, but thatâ€™s just never going to happen.
Furie is raising $10,000 on Kickstarter to fund a new comic to â€œsave Pepe.â€
â€œThis is an effort to rebrand Pepe the Frog as a symbol of love, peace and acceptance,â€ Furie wrote on the Kickstarter page.
