In the paper, we describe the Urszula Walińska's entry to the SemEval-2020 Task 8: Memotion Analysis. The sentiment analysis of memes task, is motivated by a pervasive problem of offensive content spread in social media up to the present time. In fact, memes are an important medium of expressing opinion and emotions, therefore they can be hateful at many times. In order to identify emotions expressed by memes we construct a tool based on neural networks and deep learning methods. It takes an
