If you’ve been reading memes on the Internet, you’ve probably come across the Evil Has Been Defeated GIF. This meme originated from a scene in the 2012 horror-comedy movie “The Cabin in the Woods.” The scene involves a group of Japanese schoolchildren expelling a demon from their school. The demon is then turned into a frog, and the girls at the end of the scene say, “The Evil has been defeated!” The GIF was uploaded to Tumblr by Brian Newby and has been used in many other places ever since.
The evil has been defeated gif is popular as a commentary on celebrity feuds. The meme casts a celebrity as the evil force, and the schoolgirls defeat her by transferring her spirit into a harmless frog. Those who love sports may also post a GIF when their team scores a win.
