Confession Bear is a meme usually used to admit acts of flatulence in the workplace or pranks pulled on unwitting spouses. But two days ago, one user on Reddit utilized the meme to confess to an alleged murder.
“My sister had an abusive meth addict boyfriend. I killed him with his own drugs while he was unconscious and they ruled it as an overdose,” read the meme, posted by user Naratto.
Posters on the Advice Animals subreddit where the apparent confession was posted were divided as to the authenticity of the claim. While many dismissed it as a case of trolling or an attempt to gain Reddit “karma” points, others set off to determine the identity of the user.
Since the post, the Naratto account has been deleted.
