I first came across the word “welt” when I was working at a public library in Wisconsin.
I was an elementary school English teacher, a member of a small group of high-school students who were known to be more liberal than their peers, and an ardent defender of free speech and the rights of individuals to say whatever they wanted on social media.
In 2016, I wrote about how some students in my class were bullied because they were using the word welt on social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.
I was one of those students.
The word is the most widely used swear word on the internet, with nearly two billion uses worldwide.
In 2016, a group of researchers found that about 5.6 percent of US adults use the word, which translates as “stench” or “stink.”
I used to have a problem with using the term “welt” to describe the word.
When I was a kid, the only thing I thought about when it came to swearing was the smell it would make when I touched my face.
It’s a nasty word to use and a bad word to think about, especially when you have kids.
So, in the summer of 2016, when I decided to write about the rise of “wellt” and how it had taken over social media, I knew that the word had to be part of the conversation.
The trend started at the beginning of the year, with the publication of an article on the rise in welt-related tweets on social network Twitter.
When you use the term, you are expressing your hatred for a person, often because they are wearing a mask, or they are speaking in a weird way, or because they have a big head or they have black hair.
As I wrote at the time, “Welt is a word used to dehumanize, humiliate, and attack.
It is also a term used to express anger, disgust, and outrage.”
I wrote that in a way that seemed friendly, but in my opinion, too, the trend was racist and hurtful.
It was not about the word itself, which is not inherently bad or wrong, but how it was being used.
On August 3, 2017, a Twitter user named Pauline Fournier used the term welt to describe what she saw as the spread of welt use in the United States.
Welt, she wrote, is an insult and a slur.
It implies that you are dirty, dirty, or dirty-looking.
It also means to be disgusting.
And that it’s the worst thing in the world to wear a mask.
Fourniers continued to use the slur throughout the day, often posting photos of herself wearing a wig, using a wig and makeup, and being photographed in a wig-filled house.
She used the word so often that her followers nicknamed her Weltweiler.
On August 6, Fourners Facebook page became the first place in the country to post the hashtag #WeltWeiler, a reference to the hashtag that has since become popular on Twitter and Tumblr, #WeLetsHearIt.
The hashtag quickly went viral.
Farrows’ article became a hashtag on Twitter, and Fournyer became an even more popular meme.
Within weeks, the hashtag was trending on Twitter.
And by the end of the month, it was trending everywhere, including on Instagram.
It made Fourniere and Farrow look like heroes.
It gave the WeltWeilers a place in a conversation about racism, sexism, and the spread, and it made me feel good to be on the right side of history.
But, as with most things on Twitter that are used as a weapon, the backlash came fast.
The phrase “We are going to Welt You” became a common joke on Twitter about the Wellers and Fauners, and as Fourner’s followers started to post photos of themselves wearing Welt-like clothing and photos of them holding the Weilers’ hand, it became a bit of a meme, a way to make fun of Fournerers character.
At the time I was at work, I was horrified by the memes I was seeing, the memes of me wearing a black wig and having a wig pulled off of me.
I also noticed a disturbing trend: People were saying things like “Wellt you for making a joke about racism and we are going out and killing you,” or “We want to Weil you,” to describe people wearing Weil-like outfits.
Fauner was the target of a new trend on Twitter called “WeLL-weiler,” which referred to people who use Weil as a way of saying “we will hurt you.”
We heard from friends that they were receiving hate messages and being stalked on social platforms, and that it was becoming more and more common.
