‘Disaster Girl’ is all grown up. As kids are known to do.
The little disaster girl smiling devilishly in front of a house burning to a crisp is one of the most unforgettable memes ever.
Here’s the origin of Disaster girl from Know Your Meme.
“The photograph of the girl and the burning house was taken by Dave Roth in January 2004during the local fire department’s live drill training two blocks away from his home in Mebane, North Carolina. While observing the fire, Dave caught his daughter, Zoe, smiling devilishly juxtaposed against the burning house.
Roth first uploaded the photo of his daughter, which he titled “Firestarter,” to the image hosting service Zooomr on January 2nd 2007. However, it did not receive much attention until later that year on November 29th when Roth submitted the same image to JPG Magazine for an “Emotion Capture” competition. The photo was selected for publication in the February / March 2008 print issue of the magazine.”
