If you are living in the 21st century and you haven’t heard of the Gorl meme, then you might be living under a rock. These memes are all over the internet around the world and are very famous, especially for younger people. Today we are gonna talk about what is a gorl meme, why is it a gorl and not a girl and so much more.
What is Gorl Meme?
The word Gorl is just misspelled and more a funny way of saying “girl” in Gru’s character accent from the movie Despicable Me by Illumination Entertainment. The word “Gurl” comes from the way the character Gru speaks; He speaks in a thick and unpleasant British accent, so he says Gorl Instead of a girl.
Origin of Gorl Meme
In the movie Despicable Me, the main character Gru has a Thick Eastern European accent due to which he naturally speaks the word girl as Gorl. No one noticed it at first, but after some time people began to create Gorl Meme. Below is a picture of the character Gru from Despicable Me.

In April 2018, a Twitter user @offTopicMica posted the first Gorl meme. The meme says “When You Type Gorl instead of a girl”. In just 2 weeks, this tweet reached over 118,000 retweets and 413,000 likes. And this is the beginning of the Gorl meme.

About 2 weeks after the first Gorl Meme, people started making fun of the word Gorl by putting it randomly on different videos that have lyrics related to girls, or pictures photoshopped with a Gru face.

The Best Meme to come out of the minion Universe
Some people around the internet are saying that the Gorl memes are the best meme material to ever come out of a movie, especially the minion universe, you know, the yellow-looking creatures in Despicable Me, these minions look like bananas in the movie and they are cute. Following in the footsteps of these first few Gorl Memes, the Internet began taking the Gru and Gorl meme to another level and associating the Gru face and the word Gorl to anything that has the word girl in it and making memes.
