On Thursday, Former Vice President Joe Biden officially launched his 2020 Presidential campaign on social media. He also released his campaign logo with the main version reading “Joe 2020.”
Some people on social media thought the logo wasn’t a good choice and proceeded to mock him and make their own assumptions about it.
Joe Biden’s logo for his presidential campaign was torn apart by Twitter users who found it peculiar. Many people criticized and mocked the typeface and colors used in the logo.
One of the difficulties that Biden, 76, will face during his campaign is the several accusations he’s facing from women that claim he touched them inappropriately during public events. The scandal earned him the nickname “Creepy Uncle Joe.”
People who mocked his campaign logo also took aim at the scandal. The big bold blue letters with three flag-like stripes with the letter “E” were accused of reflecting something sexual.
Iowa conservative blogger David Burge asked: “Is it just me or do the red stripes look like fingers grabbing a boob?” While Novelist Adam Lane Smith added: “It’s an appropriate logo because the D is being rubbed all over the E, perhaps nonconsensually.”
A Twitter user took aim at a circular version of the logo in which the letter “O” is slightly above the center. The person shared that they saw a female part writing, “Biden’s logo is a boob.”
People then created their own Photoshop versions. Many parodies depicted Biden grabbing female shapes carved out of the logo's letters.
Someone else mocked the logo saying: “Joe Biden's logo is a design hate crime.”
Biden also released a YouTube video to declare his candidacy. He captioned the post: "The core values of this nation, our standing in the world, our very democracy, everything that has made America -- America -- is at stake. That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for president of the United States.”
The former vice president hopes to become the contender who will unseat President Donald Trump. It’s Biden’s third try for the White House as he unsuccessfully ran in 1988 and 2008.
