The image was uploaded to Twitter by user @MohamedKamoul on June 8th, 2014.
The tweet was subsequently removed from Twitter, but the image and the quote still turned out viral.

In December, 2014, a photoshop request thread was created on 4chan, where users would create a large amount of photoshop remakes of the original image.
While the thread was taken down later, many of the edits would survive on the r/4chan subreddit.
