50 Humblebraggers Who Got Hilariously (And Rightfully) Shamed

In case you’re not familiar, a humblebrag is an ostensibly modest or self-deprecating statement whose actual purpose is to draw attention to something of which one is proud.

The term, which was coined and popularized by Parks & Rec writer Harris Wittels in 2010, has come to evolve into an entire subreddit for people clumsily showing off.

And, of course, with the rise of social media, it’s all that much easier to humblebrag about virutally anything, but it’s still cringy to see when someone feels it’s necessary. Maybe they don’t even realize they’re doing it.

If you’re gonna be this out of touch, be ready for people to shame you online because you kind of deserve it.
