When you choose to go rogue against a Supreme Court ruling and deny same-sex couples their right to marriage, the Internet will not waste any time putting you in your place. Memes depicting Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis in jail have exploded over the Internet following a judge's decision Thursday afternoon to take her into custody.

Some feature Davis as the newest cast member of Orange is the New Black, a popular Netflix series about an all-women jail in upstate New York. 

Others argued there is hypocrisy behind Davis' refusing to honor a Supreme Court decision considering her multiple marriages.

And others are just outright brutal, shutting down Davis for her apparent closed-mindedness to same-sex couples. The Internet also took over a hashtag #ImWithKim, originally meant to show support for the county clerk by conservatives and others against gay marriage.
