Luis Suarez incident breaks Twitter, memes everywhere
Uruguay striker appeared to bite Italian defender
Uruguay star Luis Suarez captured all the headlines for all the wrong reasons after his side’s heated 1-0 win over Italy at the World Cup on Tuesday.
Suarez appeared to bite Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini late in the clash. An enraged Chiellini rushed the referee to display the evidence, while Suarez appeared to actually be in pain in the dental region after the pair came together.
It isn’t the first time Suarez has been in the news for biting incidents, having been suspended twice already in his career for taking a bite out of an opponent.
So, naturally, the internet took a bite out of Suarez, using the power of photo manipulation.
First, there were the Google searches.
Then there was the social media reaction, which was immediate, severe, and extremely silly.
