Lloyd Crawford was easily the most-famous star of the MEMernet in 2020. A video captured him confronting a Black Lives Matter supporter in Germantown, telling him, "I'd like you out of my town, quick." Crawford waddled away leaving many to wonder if he was drunk or (as one on Twitter speculated) he "shate his pants."
