MORE COMMENTS AND REACTIONS.
Addy Borneman, aka Lettuce Dog and GayVapeShark, was one of the most influential memers ever. She helped turn memeing into an art form that landed her a show on adult swim. And she did it all while being unapologetically trans. RIP to a great one. Baruch Dayan Ha’Emet.

Addy Borneman touched so many lives, and the very mechanism of writing her full name out, in remembrance, to acknowledge her passing, feels so fucking wrong and foreign

RIP Addy Borneman aka lettucedog aka gayvapeshark aka one of the most important and legendary social satirists to ever grace social media with their medical grade memery. The internet is not the same because of you, & it won’t be the same without you. #leftbooklegend #lettucedog
oh no acabo de leer que ha muerto addy borneman estoy muy triste Frowning faceFrowning faceFrowning face la memesfera le debe TODO
Addy Borneman was an incredibly innovative and influential content creator; as strange as it feels to talk about memes with the seriousness of art, and idk if Addy would even accept the label, but I do think of her as a cultural creator and a digital artist as well as a comedian.
