Gru from Despicable Me saying ‘gorl’ is now a meme – here’s what you should know
You could say it’s a despicable meme.
You probably know Gru from the Despicable Me movies.
He’s the amiable pointy-nosed super villain at the centre of the franchise, voiced by Steve Carell.
He’s also now the star of a new meme that’s slowly taking over Twitter.

Yes, that’s Avril Lavigne, with Gru’s face superimposed on top, singing a slightly altered version of her 2002 banger Sk8er Boi.
You may recall that Gru has a slightly unusual accent that causes him to pronounce words in unique ways – for example, he pronounces the word “girl” as “gorl”.
And on Twitter, that’s more than enough material for a meme.
Here are some of the best examples.
