People Are Showing Their Moms This Kim Kardashian Meme And It's Not Going As Planned

"I don't know her."

Showing your parents a meme is always something of a risk, especially since there's a fair chance that they'll have no idea what you're talking about. I think we can all agree that having to explain a joke for an hour after you've told it kinda ruins the whole concept.


So, I guess you could say this tweet is what's scientifically known as A Big Mood. I would retweet it a hundred times if I could.

But people are now sending this tweet to their moms and it's going about as well as you'd expect. It all started when Twitter user @MemzIsLithenin posted their mom's reaction to the tweet.

Mariah Carey? Is that you?

With the tweet picking up more than 100,000 likes in a day, other people soon began sending the tweet to their moms and the replies are just so wholesome.

It turns out that a lot of moms just don't know who Kim Kardashian is.

Some moms were confused.

Others just found the whole thing pretty relatable.

And some moms had to get dads involved.

But for some people, things really took a left turn...

@MemzIsLithenin @aniaslikyann I just sent this to my mom and she came to my room and she thought that picture was me and my blonde best friend on drugs ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Moms really are the best. ๐Ÿ’–
