How could you, Yishan Wong?!`

If Yishan Wong had been any old redditor sharing a link to 9gag, he'd have been lambasted for it. That he's the company's CEO only just exacerbates the issue.

Wong shared a link on Facebook to 9gag, an image-based meme site, which showed just how similar a young Christopher Walken is in appearance to Scarlett Johanssen. The problem is 9gag is a sore issue for many redditors, with many claiming that 9gag pilfers posts, including original artwork, from Reddit and elsewhere.

To make matters worse, the link directed to Imgur, an image-sharing site closely linked with Reddit, which should have been an indication that the Walken/Johanssen comparison was already on the social news site somewhere.

A screenshot of Wong's apparent indiscretion soared to the top of the front page on his own site.

"Get your torches and pitchforks ready," AttackAttackAttack urged amid more than 1,000 comments from butthurt redditors. Lt_Howzit suggested it was "time for a coup."

Another commenter simply linked to the satriical r/yishansucks subreddit.

With this level of outrage at his flub, perhaps Wong might need a reddiquette refresher.

Angry woman riding Splash Mountain was born to be a meme
Splash Mountain sucks. It’s, like, six seconds of actual ride. It features the jankiest animatronics in the entire amusement park. The line is always way too long, and there’s a chance you’ll spend the rest of the day soaked in that dirty, recycled log-flume water. It’s a bottom-tier attraction propped up by the same weird nostalgia that convinces people the Haunted Mansion is still a worthy endeavor in 2016. Seriously, fuck Splash Mountain.
