Samsung made a Giphy page of comeback GIFs to send people who diss green bubbles - The Verge

I dont get it
Samsung knows some people dont buy its phones because doing so means committing themselves to becoming a green bubble person in their iPhone friends texts. Samsung feels for these people, so it launched an entire Giphy page filled with comeback GIFs they can send to self-righteous iPhone users.
For the green bubble unacquainted, many iOS users dont enjoy texting Android users because Apple treats SMS, MMS, and RCS messages differently than iMessages. All sorts of iMessage features act up when someone texts an Android user signified by a green bubble so many times, iOS users will leave Android users out of group chats or stop talking to them altogether. Its unfortunate.
Along with the GIFs, Samsung also seems to be reaching out to Instagram meme pages and asking them to share the GIFs along with the hashtag #GreenDontCare. At least four partners tried to make memes with the GIFs on Instagram. They all fail. The two I included below also both suggest that green bubble people have money? And therefore are worth texting? I dont get it!
The whole situation makes me sad, but lets take a look at the GIFs because many of them are confusing. The overall message seems to be that green bubbles can conquer blue bubbles? And that green bubbles are superior?
Theres a light violent undertone to these GIFs, too, which I dont enjoy it. Blue bubble people dont want to hurt green bubble people; they just dont want to deal with a compromised messaging product. I guess leaving them out of group chats is hurtful.
It probably should go without saying, but texting an iPhone person with one of these GIFs probably wont help the situation. The only fix, really, is to get an iPhone, and Samsung doesnt want that to happen, so we ended up with these GIFs.
