About

Rape List refers to a number of memes that entertain the premise of adding someone to a "rape list" and then notifying that person that they have been added, most commonly to shock rather than threaten them. The meme has been used on TikTok in the form of Yup, You're Going on the Rape List and on X / Twitter and imageboards in the form of a Rape List: You exploitable meme.

Origin

While the meme did not form a distinctive trend until 2023, various memes based on the premise of a "rape list" were circulated online earlier. For example, on January 18th, 2010, Know Your Meme[1] user Aric Craplin archived a Combo Dog meme captioned, "Live's a bitch, put her on your rape list" (shown below, left; another early post[2] shown below, right).

On March 1st, 2020, X user @silentoad posted a screenshot of an X / Twitter notification notifying them that user IG: Codeneist added them to a list titled "niggas I'm gonna rape." While the original post has since been removed, a screenshot of it has been widely circulated[3][4] online (repost shown below).
