Some of these are genuinely disturbing. Who even makes them? What are these people?
This is kind of the ultimate question, isn’t it? One of the biggest problems with getting the answer is the rampant (and blatant) plagiarism within minion meme circles. I check about 10 different pages for these memes, and all of them have the same content, essentially copy-pasted into their own format. Some even retain the spelling errors that I guess they can’t be bothered to correct. So, I’m never sure where the trail stops. Does each page only have one mod, and they all steal from each other? Do the mods accept submissions, making the pool of suspects much larger? Are all minion pages run by one minion overlord? I can’t imagine that it’s many different people making them, considering my mom doesn’t even know how to use Word, never mind photo editing software.
The best lead I have are the pages that feature original memes, made by just one person. Jewelz Gemz is run entirely by one woman. Another one, Giggle Palooza, is run by just one guy. Both are just regular ol’ grandparents with a knack for photo editing. So, my best guess is that there are just a few dedicated parents and grandparents out there who make these memes, and they then get crudely edited and passed around indefinitely by a few other people.
Sidenote: I beg you to check out Giggle Palooza on FB, it has some of the most horrifying sh*t I’ve ever seen. Minions have nothing on this guy.
