Choking Sasuke  meme is from image of Naruto: Shippūden anime series in which character Sasuke Uchiha is being held by the neck by his brother Itachi Uchiha. In January 2019, image combinations and photoshopped images in which Sasuke appears being chocked by various individuals gained popularity on Twitter, bearing many similarities to the Monkey Haircut and Dog Petting memes.

On May 26th, 2004, on episode 85 of Naruto anime series “Hate Among the Uchihas: The Last of the Clan!” Itachi Uchiha pushes his brother Sasuke against the wall, holding him by the neck and accusing him of being weak. On April 19, 2012, the redrawn scene appeared as a flashback in the 259th episode “Rift” of Naruto: Shippūden series.

On January 13th, 2019 Twitter user @kirikocult posted two pictures. The first one is a Sasuke cut from screenshot. The second is a photo with a cat stretching its paw. Thus, it turned out that the cat is stifling Sasuke.
