For those who frequent internet forums may be familiar with the Pedobear. He was made popular on the 4chan forums where his image is used to call out potential pedophiles. A Vancouver local has photoshopped his image in with the Olympic mascots and has made it’s rounds on the internet. I guess the image was so popular that if you do a Google image search for “Olympic Mascots” it would show up a number of times in the first few pages.
A Polish newspaper must’ve done an image search and grabbed the image without knowing about the Pedobear or thought this one was better because there’s 5 mascots.
