The U.S. Air Force just ruined the ‘Laurel or Yanny’ meme

The U.S. Air Force just ruined the ‘Laurel or Yanny’ meme


Nothing lasts forever and no meme goes untarnished.

On Thursday morning, the U.S. Air Force jumped on the never-ending “Laurel or Yanny” meme and took it to a really dark place, proving memes and military action just don’t mix.

The social media minds behind the U.S. Air Force Twitter account decided to employ the hotly-debated two names in a tweet bragging about fighter jets providing air support to repress a Taliban offensive. 

The link included in the tweet is a story about Air Force air support efforts to prevent Taliban forces from overtaking Farah city which… is a long way off from the light-hearted debate that ensued over “Laurel or Yanny.”

Many on Twitter agreed.

No, not even the social media masters of the armed forces are immune to the backlash of a jokey misfire. 

Then again, maybe our own Chris Taylor was right all along: the memes are just here to divide us. 

What a time to be alive.
