Comedians Fight To Take Down Famed Joke-Plagiarizing Instagram Account

Actors comics across the country are beginning a campaign to take down a hugely popular Instagram account, FuckJerry.

The side run by founder Elliot Tebele as part of his company, Jerry Media, has come under fire by celebrities who are outraged over its reposting of their jokes without any credit, essentially stealing them.

The movement began after Vulture’s Megh Wright explained in a report the account’s history of plagiarizing puns while scoring thousands of dollars in ad revenue from sponsors. Comedy Central has since decided to pull its placements from the page.

Now, the hashtag #fuckfuckjerry is spreading throughout social media like wildfire, with comics including John Mulaney calling for the public to stop following the account.
