The creator of Pepe the Frog is trying to bring the cartoon back to its positive roots –– when it wasn't being misappropriated by bigots.
The sad frog (that was just meant to be a sad frog) has been taken over by alt-right groups in memes promoting anti-Semitism and racism.
The Anti-Defamation League has included Pepe in its online hate symbols database, with company like the swastika and "14 Words."
