How did Future become a meme? We don’t care, these memes are lit!
Not too long ago, Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn, a.k.a. Future, was reinvented as a meme like so many celebs before him. No one’s quite sure how it started, but the famous rapper became the center point of a meme anyone with an ex who just can’t take a hint will relate to.
Future memes started flooding Twitter around Thanksgiving 2019 and took off at breakneck speed. The meme tackles the complicated art of the ex text: anyone with a partner who got away, was dumped for infidelity, or broke their heart knows the holidays are the times to expect a ping from their ex.
Future memes of the rapper texting perfectly realistic captions of insincere “aw shucks” ex texts are truly *chef’s kiss.* Take a look at some of the best Future memes we could find.
“Happy Thanksgiving, hope you’re well. I just wanted to say I’m thankful for everything you are. You a blessing, even when I couldn’t see that. I miss us but I see you’re happy with your new man. If you ever need a friend I’m always here. You don’t have to respond, just be well” pic.twitter.com/JmpNyhxfaZ

Turkey day has many exes five wines deep & rubbing their bellies alone, reminiscing on lost loves on Mom’s couch. Is it the false sense of security in Mommy’s house that makes exes confident enough to check in on past partners who’ve moved on? Who knows, but when they send a T-day text, it’s going to look like this.
“I know I’m a day late but I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving. We haven’t talked in a while but wanted to tell you that you’re one of the lessons I’m most grateful for this year. I know we lost our spark but you always in my heart, you don’t have to respond just wanted to say.” pic.twitter.com/GjHsQVdCbZ

Thanksgiving ex texts often read like a picaresque novel, covering all bases. Here’s a pick from the Thanksgiving section of Future memes that displays the dense pings exes are capable of – in nauseating realism. (We get it; you’re a “nice guy”.)
“Bitch I know you seen my Thanksgiving text. Quit fuckin playin wit me. Tell ya momma I said Merry Christmas and save me a plate.” pic.twitter.com/9JfhZITdwZ

Other exes cut straight to the point, as shown in this pick from the vault of Future memes. When a suspiciously overly sincere Thanksgiving text doesn’t work, hit ‘em with one of these Christmas texts instead.
"merry christmas. I'm not even gonna check under the tree bc you were the best gift i ever got. hope you're well" pic.twitter.com/D5A7qUCEjM

Future is shown jet-setting in this meme, and rightfully so; this ex text cuts straight to the point, addressing us with the Christmas gift of a sleazy but slick ex text – that just might work.
"I know I'm the last person you want to talk to, but I still wanted to be the first to wish you a merry Christmas" pic.twitter.com/IU1Cmh8yFY

The “woe is me” ex text featured in this Future meme is almost too real. (You’re right – you are the last person we want to talk to).
“Merry Christmas, it’s crazy we were celebrating the holidays together last year lol. Hope you been good, tell your mom I said hello.” pic.twitter.com/Wuabz9T8PQ

This pick from the potpourri of Christmas Future memes hits you where it hurts with a classic passive aggressive ex text. (Don’t bring Mom into it – this is about us!)
“Good morning, ask your momma if she know Mary J Blidge coming next month I know she love some Mary. Hope y’all have a good day I miss you so much Merry Christmas tho.” pic.twitter.com/VMHNZGG1tW

When the text is mostly about Mom, you know your ex is trying too hard. Future gives it to us straight in this meme.
Had to check on you. They say that lil coronavirus in the city now. Crazy how many people getting sick. Reminds me how sick I was when I lost you. Damn your love was contagious. I’m here forever if you need me. pic.twitter.com/88CVTOkGGI

"this virus is wild. i was singing happy birthday while washing my hands and realized any birthday i spend without you won't be happy. no need to respond, hope you're well" pic.twitter.com/AbW42qlrdS

The throwback COVID-19 check-in text displayed in this Future meme will no doubt send chills down the spines of vulnerable exes worldwide. (No need to respond? Then why text us? smdh)
I know I can’t see you in person b/c of social distancing, but this distance has me wanting to be more social. I’m sure you’ve probably washed your hands of me & want me to stay 6 feet away even when this is over. Tell your grandmom I left some groceries on her step. Stay safe. pic.twitter.com/ihn74IAxsq

This Future meme gives us perhaps the quippiest COVID-19 ex ping yet. Going the extra mile for Grandma must have at least won them a few points, though.
