About

My Brother in Christ is a recaption meme trend using "my brother in Christ" as a slang term put on top of words, most often replacing the N-word, in other meme captions to enhance the original meaning by adding a flair of polite Christianity for humorous effect. The trend is mostly used as an enhancement on existing images where meme creators replace the text with the phrase but also spread to become a standalone catchphrase or punchline on Twitter in early 2022.

Origin

The first recorded instance of a meme replacing a caption with the N-word to "my brother in Christ" comes from Twitter user @etherxeno,[1] who on February 18th, 2022, recaptioned the Dudes Be Like 'Subway Sucks' meme (shown below, left). The tweet received over 5,700 retweets and 42,700 likes in one month. The original meme was posted in January 2019 and has been widely circulated and recaptioned since (shown below, right).

Spread

The concept continued to grow as more memes recaptioned with the catchphrase "my brother in Christ" spread online. For example, the Tumblr account teathattast[2] uploaded a version that was similar to the Subway one from cherriesandpomegranates, but instead references the game Elden Ring, leading to significant discussion and proliferation of using the phrase in a more casual sense (shown below).

On March 11th, 2022, the phrase began to show up more on Twitter with people using it in place of other words while describing a trend that people claim to hate but is considered to be the fault of the person for not enjoying it. An example of this was posted by the Twitter account[3] JarrettMoore18, which uses the phrase to say that people who don't enjoy TikTok did it to themselves by ruining their own algorithm (shown below).

Dudes Be Like "Subway Sucks"

Dudes Be Like 'Subway Sucks,' continued Nigga You Made The Sandwich, is the caption on an image macro of a Subway sandwich joking that you can't complain that your Subway sandwich sucks since the customer chooses what goes on it, meaning they technically made their own sandwich and it's their own fault if it isn't good. The image macro became popularized as an exploitable over the course of 2020 and 2021, particularly on Instagram, where the text was altered via recaptioning.
