Heartwarming: The Worst Person You Know man did not know he was a meme



The famous image occured when Garcia's photog brother in law asked him to stand in a photograph so he could ajust for the light, and the image was uploaded to Getty Images Catalogue in 2014.

In 2018, his BIL got a notifcation that a 'satirical news site' used the image for their article. Of course, that site was the US-Based The Onion. Since the site is in English, his municipality near Barcelona weren't familiar with it, and didn't treat him differently.....

...Until a journalist dropped clues on how to find Garcia. He shrugged off some distasteful comments and proceeded to just live his life. The article is written oddly, as it begins to talk about another meme man halfway though.
