Alex Jones Turning Around In Court is an exploitable image macro of Info Wars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones turning around to look over his shoulder at the doors in court amid his 2022 defamation trial. After being posted on Twitter in July of that year, meme creators reimagined who Jones was looking at in the doorway or used him as a reaction image with an accompanying caption for humorous effect.
On July 26th, 2022, Austin, Texas news outlet KXAN published an article about Alex Jones’ defamation trial regarding the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. Within the article, the station included a screencap from the trial of Jones turning around to look at the courtroom behind him (shown below)
On July 26th, 2022, Twitter user and KXAN newswoman Avery Travis attached the screencap in a tweet alongside others from the trial, earning 10 likes in two weeks (shown below, left). Despite the aforementioned tweet being its first appearance on social media, it wasn’t used in a memetic context until August 4th, 2022, when Twitter user cheekysiIlyguy captioned the image, “when I’m at a squirting contest and I hear someone yell ‘SQUIRT ON THAT WHITEBOY!!!'” earning roughly 5,400 likes in four days (shown below, right).
