4Chan Meme Lands on Papal Billboard

By Matt Van Hoven 

A billboard in Malta announcing a visit by Pope Benedict XVI got the 4Chan treatment when someone added two stencils of Koala bears. This meme is not new, and it’s called “pedobear“, which began on the Web forum 4Chan. Basically 4Channers will publicly flame pedobears, going so far as to mess with their real lives. But it’s not known who added the spice to Pope Ben’s billboard. 4Chan is notorious for attacks against pedobears.
