As a meme, I’m in this post and I don’t like it is mostly used to practice self-criticism in situations where somebody recognizes their own bad habits or negative attributions in someone else’s behavior.
The feature allowed users to report posts for various reasons, one of the options was to hide posts because the user is represented on it without consent.
It was accessible through a drop-down menu, which was available after navigating to “I don’t want to see this” next to any post.
We don’t exactly know who initially utilized the format as a meme, or when.
The earliest traceable occurrence was a Facebook post from 2014, submitted on the page Men’s Humor.
Naturally, I’m in this post and I don’t like it primarily circulated around Facebook humor communities, but the meme also surfaced on Reddit and Tumblr eventually.
