How does the Snoop Dogg 'giving up' trend begin?

Influencers have started using the same black-and-white style imagery and text to spoof Snoop Dogg's post, which has gone viral, and create a new meme format in which they declare they are giving up something essential to their persona. 

Take a photo of yourself and adjust the color to black and white on the left side of the frame. Next, use the following format to add white text on the text's right side: Add your text, "After giving it a lot of thought and talking to my family, I've decided to give up [insert your idea here].

The "Snoop Dogg" meme has been spreading widely on the internet, involving celebrities, video game franchises, and other people trying it. The Call of Duty squad Atlanta FaZe made fun of a player known for abusing the in-game exploit known as "snaking" by saying, "I'm giving up snaking."

Professional wrestler Stokely Hathaway, who is known for his gregarious nature, joined Snoop Dogg in the trend of viral "giving up" statements, which read, "After much consideration and conversation with my family, I've decided to give up on hating." 

People have been enjoying the new TikTok trends, such as the AI yearbook photo trend, so this isn't the only one that will hit the internet by storm in November 2023.
