The very best of the Butthurt Dweller meme features an unsightly young male who likely has never been with a woman, but sure likes to judge them as often as his popular little image macro meme will allow. Smug, delusional and never one to pass up an extra helping of butter, the Butthurt Dweller can be easily found playing videos games, trolling Reddit or watching porn in his mother's basement at any given time.
The Butthurt Dweller is a special kind of person who can form a reasonable opinion of something without knowing a single thing about it. Women, religion, music and everything in between is fair game for criticism, deserved or not, from the Butthurt Dweller.
Just like the Musically Oblivious 8th Grader Meme
, the Butthurt Dweller meme features an image of an actual person. KimmoKM, a Finnish "basement dweller," stars in and inspired the meme when his smug mug was posted on a Finnish website along with the comment "ugly whore, I wouldn't f*ck her."
That quick moment of narcissism was enough to launch an Internet meme that would blow up in February 2011. The notorious Internet forum 4chan took hold of the meme and exploited the troll in dozens of languages over the next few months.
KimmoKM became an Internet legend and was actually a good sport about the whole thing. In an IRC interview, he not only talked about his approval of the meme, but also that the statements made by the Butthurt Dweller, or Gordo Granudo as he's also known, are pretty close to his own thoughts and opinions.
I'm sure his mother, who likely wonders-while doing his laundry and cooking his meals-when he'll ever move out of her basement, is very proud. Spoiler: The Butthurt Dweller's mother is the oblivious suburban mom.
You know what they say about the apple and the tree.
