Hedgewik, a.k.a. "Store-Brand Stonetoss", "Diet PebblePunt", "Rockthrow Lite", among other names, is an alt-right webcomic. As the aforementioned nicknames would suggest, it is extraordinarily similar to StoneToss in both the method it uses to deliver a punchline, as well as the hideous ideology it promotes. Apart from being a "Clonetoss" comic, Hedgewik has developed a reputation for some of the most hideous artwork ever seen in a semi-popular webcomic. The comics mostly contain themes of antisemitism, racism, transphobia, and other assorted forms of bigotry, as well as the occasionally mild conservative political commentary.

Banned[edit]

r/hedgewik[edit]

Hedgewik's subreddit was banned by Reddit. The ban note reads, "This subreddit was banned due to a violation of Reddit’s content policy against harassing content."[1] Searching on r/AgainstHateSubreddits, it appears the subreddit was banned some time in November 2019, shortly after Hedgewik's own user account was suspended.[2][3]

In a vain attempt at retaliation, Hedgewik created a list of Nazi subreddits on his website to route people to them.[4][5] Unsurprisingly, they were far too dumb to realize that such an action would make these subreddits easier to ban.[citation NOT needed]
