About

Butcher "Oi Homelander Took Me Son" or Butcher "Oi" is a series of memes referencing The Boys TV show character Billy Butcher (played by Karl Urban), his repeated use of the word "oi" as a greeting and the fact that Homelander killed his wife and stole his son. The Butcher "Oi" memes were first popularized on Reddit in 2022 and were further popularized on social media in 2024 during the run of The Boys season four, inspiring memes on sites like X / Twitter, Reddit and TikTok in which Butcher is quoted as saying a line like, "Oi oi, Homelander took me son" followed by a joke about Starlight Mogging or M.M.'s outfits.

Origin

In The Boys, the character The Butcher, a British superhero parodying The Punisher, says "oi" as a greeting (compilation shown below).



On June 26th, 2022, Redditor u/SujayShah13 posted an image macro to the subreddit /r/TheBoys[1] captioned, "This was the oiest 'oi' ever oied" alongside an image of Butcher's face subtitled "oi," garnering over 18,000 upvotes in two years (shown below). This is the earliest known meme to reference his use of the term.


This was the oiest "Oi" ever oied: Oi.

Spread

Further memes referencing Butcher's use of the term "oi" became popularized on social media over the following years.

On June 27th, 2022, Redditor u/Phetru posted a photoshop to /r/TheBoys[2] titled "Tiny Butcher Pt. 2 – 'Oi!'" of a scene from The Boys where Butcher faces Homelander, however, in the photoshop, Butcher appears miniature, garnering over 960 upvotes in two years (shown below, left).

That day, the official @TheBoysTV X[3] page posted "Oi," garnering over 170,000 likes in two years. They then commented on their own post with an edited tiny Butcher meme with the words "Oi" added beside the character, garnering over 70,000 likes in the same span of time (shown below, right).
