Who really owns a joke? Comedians join forces to cancel F--kJerry
Every week, the q online panel gets together to bring you up to speed on the big headlines taking over the internet right now. Today, Buzzfeed's Elamin Abdelmahmoud and The New York Times' Amanda Hess join Tom Power to discuss a shift in the social media landscape's content-stealing culture.
F--kJerry is one of the most popular accounts on Instagram with more than 14 million followers. The person behind this account, Elliot Tebele, has made thousands of dollars in advertising from sharing other people's jokes and memes online. Now, fed-up comedians are calling for a boycott of the F--kJerry account. The q online panel is here to unpack the story.
