Heartbroken Cowboy is a screenshot meme which, originated from James Daniel Marrs Ritchey's YouTube video, "57. Current Chart - Y2016M7D24" which, was removed from his channel in 2016. It's first known usage read, "Heartbroken Cowboy is heartbroken" which was created in response to the video deletion.
The meme is used to either react seriously to major events (eg: celebrity deaths, upsetting videos, and natural disasters), or humorously to small things (eg: your cat only likes you because you feed him).
The meme contains James wearing a cowboy hat, and looking rather heartbroken. This expression is quite out of character for the video which, was a music discussion. The YouTube video was part of a series of videos on music, all of which have since been removed from James's YouTube channel. James has a reputation for deleting, and unlisting videos from his channel.
