Joaquin Phoenix Memes Go Viral With Looming Hurricane Joaquin Forecast

Hurricane Joaquin
Hurricane Joaquin triggered hilarious memes about Oscar-nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix  

Not cool, bro. Joaquin Phoenix may live in sunny L.A., but the Oscar-nominated actor is all the rage on the East Coast these days. Hilarious memes of Phoenix have gone completely viral with the looming forecast of Hurricane Joaquin.

One laugh-out-loud meme in particular features several photos of Phoenix's face Photoshopped onto a weather map. The looks vary from his scruffy years on the red carpet to his role as Johnny Cash in the 2005 drama Walk the Line.

But there's more. Some tweeters are so peeved about Hurricane Joaquin ruining their weekend plans (ugh!) that they are even jokingly blaming the flood warnings on the star.

"Tbh i am sick of joaquin phoenix destroying our community like this," one commenter wrote on Twitter. A second added: "Power is out at work. Thanks Joaquin Phoenix!"

The Category 4 storm is set to hit early next week, and will stretch from Florida to Connecticut. In some areas, between 10 and 15 inches of rain is expected.
