Welcome to the meme jungle Axl Rose.
A less than flattering photo of the Guns N' Roses front man is being used for a series of mean memes, and now the singer is reportedly trying to get the image scrubbed from the internet.
According to the Washington Post, a batch of DMCA copyright notices were filed on behalf of Rose and sent to Google requesting the removal of the photo that sparked the "Fat Axl" memes because of copyright infringement.
The memes change the lyrics to Guns N Roses songs to poke fun at the picture of Rose, who is the band's front man. Lines like "Welcome to the Jungle, we got tons of cake" and "Sweet Pie o' mine" have regularly made the rounds on Twitter.

Hey, the Dude’s in Meat Loaf territory. Parodies are protected.
Wowzie! Middle age has not been kind to him.
I heard had been getting in shape for the upcoming tour before breaking a leg. At least his voice is 95% back. Just lay off the tacos. Go Axl !
The Gods are not kind to rock stars when they hit middle age. Axl goes from a size 28 waist to looking like any other good old boy who spends his time sitting on a bar stool at the local bar. Linda Ronstadt goes from being something that men drooled over in the 70s to a fat ass in the 2000s. This is why they need to fade away once they hit 30 or 40.
There was a time, Friday or Saturday night a case of beer, a giant roast beef sub, munchies glory...
Now, at 57 years, I look at fattening food, I gain weight...
Axl needs greasing !!!
Linda Ronstadt broke my heart the way time dealt with her. She was always a heart throb of mine despite being one of the stupidest liberals of all time.
She had a beautiful voice.
And don’t forget cute and perky Sally Struthers! She went from a 60’s tv pin-up to South Park parody.
Half the guys I knew in college (and even a lot in law school) had her poster up in their dorm rooms. But Ronstadt's ancestry is half-Mexican, and middle age is generally unkind to Mexican women's physiques.
Except for Keith, of course!
She has Parkinson’s Disease.
If Axl sings better sitting, which he almost certainly has lately, then he can stay on that throne without ever getting up as far as I am concerned.
I’m sure he’s crying all the way to the bank.
Mick Jagger still looks pretty damn good for his age.
Then again, he’s been a health nut for the last 40 years.
Maybe it was being a liberal windtunnel that did in Ronstadt’s looks. Raquel Welch, half Mexican, has turned to pro-life and other moral themes as she grew older, is about 75, and still quite, ummm, well-preserved.
