SICK Redditors have told people not to Google “space movie from 1992” in a bid to trick them into a racist joke.
The appalling attempt at comedy began circulating on the discussion platform Reddit, before spreading across social media and becoming one of Google's top autofill suggestions.
Those deceived by the terrible trick find search results for the 1992 short film, Gayn****** from Outer Space.
The sci-fi flick follows a group of intergalactic homosexual black men from planet Anus, who visit Earth to wipe out the female population and create an all-male gay society.
The film lends its name from "Grave Robbers from Outer Space", the original title of the 1959 horror movie, "Plan 9 from Outer Space".
The intentions of the 1992 film have long been disputed, as viewers question whether it is racist and homophobic rather than a harmless spoof.
The sarcastic search warning first began circulating back in 2016, before reemerging in 2020 and the start of this year.
The joke has continued to spread across social media as cruel pranksters attempt to shock unsuspecting internet users with the racist remark.
The latest thread concerning the movie was titled,"I was told to google space movie 1992 and was not disappointed," and posted on February 3.
Other Reddit users flooded the comments, amused by the joke and praising the film – while some took the opportunity to post vile abuse.
Countless memes have since been created of the gag, which began to gain traction on Twitter and Facebook.
Brian Redban, the producer and co-host of The Joe Rogan Experience, tweeted: "DO NOT GOOGLE "SPACE MOVIE 1992"' on December 4, 2020.
The 26-minute-long movie, featured by the 2006 Stockholm Queer Film Festival, is described as a "comedic cult favourite" by fans on IMDB.
The Reddit-roll out of the joke is similar to an incident that occurred at the beginning of this month, after users similarly made the racist joke, "Don't google which dinosaur had 500 teeth" go viral.
