VapeNation is a Twitch.tv emote as part of the BTTV (Better Twitch TV) browser extension, which is available to all viewers/users that have it installed.
The emote features a picture YouTube personality Ethan “H3H3” Klein, that was taken from his parody video, where he can be see making fun of vapers and those who smoke marihuana.
The emote can be used when mocking or making fun of someone in a sarcastic way on Twitch.tv.
Origin of the emote
Ethan wanted to address vaping’s rise in popularity, as the habit was deemed “gay” by the online community endlessly.
He has created a sarcastic video, to acknowledge the memes on the internet about vaping.
The original video was uploaded to YouTube in early 2016 and has since spawned endless reaction videos, images and memes, thus prompting an emote to be added to the BTTV collection on Twitch.tv, later that year.
