About

Delete This Nephew is a popular comment and joke on the /r/BlackPeopleTwittersubreddit referencing a Facebook thread where an angry uncle instructs his nephew to delete a status about not wearing seatbelts.

Origin

On January 3rd, 2017, Full-Penetration posted a screenshot of a Facebook status that reads "U a faggot if u wear a seatbelt…REAL NIGGAS FLY OUT THE CAR" to /r/BlackPeopleTwitter.[1] In the ensuing thread on the status, the anonymous poster's uncle posts a selfie of himself looking angry, captioned "DELETE THIS NEPHEW….." Full-Penetration's post of the screenshot, shown below, gained over 4,300 points.

Spread

Shortly after the post, the image and variations on it began spreading through Reddit. The following day, the image was posted to /r/oldpeoplefacebook[2] where it gained over 3,100 points. On the 5th, herfavseason posted an edit making the uncle look like a Yu-Gi-Oh card to /r/bptcg.[3]

Meanwhile, the phrase became a popular joke comment on certain "extreme" posts on /r/BlackPeopleTwitter, similar to delet this. This led to two inquiry threads, one posted on /r/OutOfTheLoop[4] and another on /r/OutOfTheHoop.[5] The phrase also began appearing regularly on Twitter in the coming months.[6]

What happens if I delete the other nephew?

Well, nothing, except then you still have to delete this nephew, and then you're on your way to a full-on Nephew Purge, and nobody wants that.

I see this all the time, never saw the origin before though so that’s good to know.
