The famous photo of Jerry Messing tipping a fedora

Messing has become well known to social network users such as Reddit and Facebook as the "Fedora Tipper Guy". This name comes from a photo of him wearing a suit and a fedora, tipping the fedora toward the camera. This photo is associated with many different groups of people when used, namely atheists, ridiculing them. Messing has denied that he is an atheist, instead claiming that he is a devout Roman Catholic.
