I’m Going To Create An Environment That Is So Toxic is a quote by Sue Sylvester from the 2010s musical television show Glee. The line became a reaction image in 2020 primarily on Twitter, where users paired the line with various captions and used text blackout to change the image itself.
The quote comes from episode seven of Glee, “Throwdown,” which aired October 14th, 2009 (shown below).
