Need to poop in Paris? You can join Parisians in protesting French President Emmanuel Macron and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo by defecating in the Seine River before they jump in the water today!

Paris residents are protesting the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris and the city's massive spending on a project to clean the Seine River to make it safe for Olympic swimmers to compete in.

After French President Emmanuel Macron and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo vowed to take a plunge in the water that has reportedly been unsafe to swim in for a century, Parisians online and on social media formulated a plan to make the politicians "bathe in our sh*t."

The hashtag #JeChieDansLaSeineLe23Juin,  which translates to, "I sh*t in the Seine on June 23," and a website under the same name have gone viral, with supporters of the protest using it as a rallying cry urging everybody to sh*t in the water.

The website even has a calculator which will tell you what time to poop in the river in order to deliver your package to the capital by noon.

A popular meme with the hashtag shows toilets along the bank of the river:
