Origin of the meme
The first know mention of the now altered version of FeelGoodMan, was in the beginning of 2009. A user has posted a version of the meme, with its mouth flipped upside-down, hence creating FeelsBadMan, which later has spawned the now know version “not good man”.
This was turned into an emote for the streaming website Twitch.tv in 2016, with it being added to the FrankerFaceZ collection.
Spread of the meme
The ever so popular character Pepe the Frog has spawned many successful memes and emotes, especially the first two ones: FeelsGoodMan and FeelsBadMan.
