When CNN decided to seek out the Reddit user responsible for the hilarious President Donald Trump vs CNN wrestling meme video, the network unintentionally put a target on its own from the whole of the internet.
This new meme video show 60 seconds of Trump beating CNN in various ways… let’s see if CNN is going to track this user down as well.
CNN issued a statement, according to The Hill in which it asserted that it had found the Reddit user who created for the following meme:
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 2, 2017
After finding out the person’s identity, CNN then apparently tried to show some couth by not releasing the user’s name. The network’s statement in part read:
“CNN is not publishing ‘HanA**holeSolo’s’ name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.”
However, the network’s statement also came with a veiled warning to the user should he decide to continue his “behavior.” The statement added that, “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”
Now, after being harshly criticized for creating a witch hunt to find the Reddit user, CNN unwittingly opened up a can of worms on the internet.
Someone else decided to show the network how infantile and childish it acted by releasing a 60-second clip showing a photoshopped Donald Trump beating a photoshopped CNN in various situations.
The tweet was sent from YouTube personality Mike Cernovich’s official account with the caption: “CNN tracked down the creator of the Trump wrestling meme and threatened him. This is how the internet is responding.”

The reaction on Twitter has been absolutely hilarious:

CNN proved that it is a fake news network by repeatedly reporting falsities, and by engaging in Twitter warfare instead of focusing on real news.
No word on whether or not CNN reporters have tracked down the creator of the 60-second compilation yet, but should they do so that would further prove that the “news” network is nothing but a gossip media outlet.
