About

Homophobic Dog or Not Too Fond Of Gay People refers to a series of ironic image macros of a white dachshund named Whitney Chewston, often sitting next to a glass of red wine with a Whisper caption that reads, "not too fond of gay people," suggesting the dog is homophobic. The image was posted to Instagram in June 2019 and first appeared as a meme on Instagram in March 2021, gaining viral spread over the course of the year and inspiring users to place new quotes over the photo of the dog. In 2022, the meme inspired photoshops of additional Whitney Chewston photos adding similarly ironic homophobic captions, as well as captions suggesting the dog learned from its homophobic ways and is now tolerant of the LGBTQ+ community.

Origin

On June 12th, 2019, Instagram[7] user whitney_chewston posted a photo of their dog, a white Dachschund, sitting next to a glass of red wine, gaining over 22,300 likes in three years (shown below). The image was reposed by Instagram[8] user dachshund_igzas in November 2021, gaining over 4,400 likes in a year.



On an unknown date prior to March 23rd 2021, an anonymous Instagram artist created an image macro using the photo of the dog, captioned using the Whisper app, "not too fond of gay people" (shown below, left). This was confirmed by GotFunnyPictures through a DM with Whitney's owners. Apparently, the user, a member of the LGBTQ+ community, made the meme to use amongst friends as an inside joke. On March 23rd, 2021, Instagram[1] user insect.sama posted the image macro, offering the earliest current post of the meme. On March 24th, iFunny[2] user themilkman48 posted a better quality version of the meme with a wider crop, gaining over 40 smiles in a year (shown below, right).
