The NSFW Viral Kebab Photo That Has Internet Sleuths Stumped

YouTuber PaymoneyWubby ended his April 15 investigation with an appeal for help from the video’s viewers, which currently number just over 600K. In the days since the video aired, the Lee R angle with which Wubby was obsessed has been dropped. First, a Redditor found the same image in a trolling review of a pizza shop in Germany. As of writing, the image has been removed from that review as well.

Then, @GingMate shared on Twitter that Lee R could be related to the restaurant once called Lee’s Raj. However, they then added that they believe the whole Lee R lead to be a blind alley. They found multiple photos on Facebook predating Lee R’s. It seems to have appeared in 2019 and taken off as a meme in 2020. “Definitely think your best bet to find the origin will be directly through UK Facebook meme pages,” they suggested. They recommended Rate My Plate, as the page’s admins receive submissions directly.

People who are still hung up on Lee R might want to know why he’s not speaking out. After all, the review was taken down, so he must be aware of the interest. Another Redditor noted that in the UK, defamation laws place the onus of proof on the person making the claim. So, Lee R might not want the hassle of proving the factuality of their joke review of an oddly-shaped kebab. Whatever the reason, Lee R doesn’t appear to be the answer.
