Epyc Wynn

Epyc Wynn is a hacktivist memetic symbol representing a desire for revolution against unethical mods and admins and promotion of free speech on all websites. It is heavily tied to forum and meme communities and is borderline anarchist in nature due to its appeal to overthrowing unethical digital "governments."

Epyc Wynn is a symbol based on the aesthetics of the Awesome Face meme. It originates with a user who originally went by the name Epyc Wyn but later changed their name to Epyc Wynn. More commonly the symbol has a yellow forehead with white scleras, purple mouth, and red tongue.

The original user of this symbol brought the symbol to prominence after gaining high ranks on KnowYourMeme and Escapist Magazine as well as gaining high numbers of views on their threads on KYM, EM, and Encyclopedia Dramatica. This combined with their sharp criticism against moderators and administrators on these sites and ultimately being banned from said sites, led to the symbol becoming well-known as a symbol of rebellion against unethical Internet moderators and administrators.

This memetic symbol is additionally notorious because the user who originally created it has repeatedly forced its spread online, even going as far as creating pages such as this one.
