I trust you when you say that those memes are offensive (and it seems like they were talkimgactualkyboit bipolar disorder).

in general though, I don't think we can appropriate the word bipolar. It's different to bipolar disorder. It just means having two poles and it's used in all kinds of contexts. It's not an exclusively clinical term.
