Rodney has become closely associated with the “Florida Man” meme.

This refers to a Twitter feed which posts strange news headlines focusing on numerous men from Florida.

There are so many examples, but Rodney seems to encapsulate the meme for many.

How does he feel about it?

In an interview with Refinery29, he spoke out.

“I know all about [Florida Man] now. I didn’t know anything about it until I started looking at the reviews… I don’t pretend to be anything but the new image of the Florida Man these days.”

The best thing to do is embrace it! After all, his story really captures the spirit of the meme.
