Oh i do love it when memes go mainstream!

The war over Pepe The Frog may soon move from the internet into a key battleground state of the presidential campaign.

Fans of the alt-right mascot — which critics dub a racist hate symbol — have raised enough money to place a Pepe cartoon in support of Donald Trump on a handful of digital billboards in Pennsylvania, a crowdfunding site claims. Donors on the platform WeSearchr drummed up $5,000 for the ad buy, which the site’s founders say could begin appearing off of highways in the state as early as next week.

“We think a lot people are going to be upset about the billboard,” Charles Johnson, a controversial blogger and CEO of WeSearchr, told Vocativ in an interview. He said that his company has been in talks with several digital billboard providers in Pennsylvania and would be able to run as many as ten signs with the money raised. “It looks like it’s going to happen.”
