Pope Francis was at a camp for the internally displaced in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic, as part of his three-nation tour. During his bold diplomatic effort, the pontiff addressed the country's two-year civil war that stems from religious disparities.
"Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters," he said at the city's Koudoukou central mosque, suggesting inter-religious peace. "We must therefore consider ourselves and conduct ourselves as such."
However, people across social media heard a different message when a photo of the pope holding a mic surfaced online. Using the world-trending hashtag #PopeBars, Internet creatives produced memes as if the pope is about to drop a nasty freestyle.
Check out a few of the best #PopeBars memes below:
