As summer quickly approaches fall, Twitter users were quick to provide a new meme for the coming season: Christian Girl Autumn.
As summer ends so does “Hot Girl Summer,” the iconic and wholesome phrase coined by Megan Thee Stallion that asked everyone to have a good time and not care about what anyone said, at least for a couple of months. Now that that’s over, it’s time for… Christian Girl Autumn?
This strange meme originated from an image that featured two brunettes dressed exactly alike, looking cozy and wearing boots and scarves in different shades of brown. The photo is over three years old and was uploaded by social media influencer Caitlin Covington, who was surprised to wake up one day as the face of a new and kind of mean meme.
Twitter user @lasagnabby started it all by posting this photo and adding in a caption, making it the embodiment of the opposite of the good stuff that hot girl summer represented.

Twitter users were quick to jump onboard and make jokes of their own, calling the photo homophobic and like only watching it left remnants of pumpkin spice lattes in their mouths. Check out some of the funniest reactions below:
