(((Name))) used to mean "Sending hugs to name" ... then it came to be some anti-Jewish thing.

@lnxw48a1 Specifically, it's the "echo"... it's intended to be the text equivalent of an echoing voice to indicate that person is Jewish (or has ties to the Jewish community, maybe, I forget). It's kind of sad how people can hijack anything for their own discriminatory views... IMO, it's just as bad as hijacking the swastika (which once upon a time was not a hate symbol).
