I'm sorry, what Internet memes were they appropriating?  Keyboard cat?  Overly attached girlfriend?  "And then the murders began"?

It takes more than enjoying a cute, clever, or funny way of expression to be a culture.
Cool kids mad mom found out and joined in and now everything is ruined sounds more like it.
Life is amazing, people are so hilariously complicated.

Memes are a part of a sacred subculture that is appropriated?  I say, appropriate on.  Once mom and dad do it, kids will find something else to be stupid about.

So a meme is appropriating an intellectual property and the owner's of said IP are reusing the meme? And the memers are upset?

Rather, they're worried about corporate appropriation of a subculture.

The US is a melting pot. Once you're here, your culture belongs to everyone. Suck it.
