The boomers are having their revenge. After many months of getting “okay boomer-ed” for their opinions on climate change and bootstrapping your way to the top, then losing their minds, they’re not getting to call out millennials for their pandemic behavior. Boomers are complaining that millennials are out partying, ignoring social distancing orders, and acting like this is all an extended vacation:
Time for millennials on spring break to grow up. Stop swarming beaches and bars and spreading Coronavirus. Forget your selfishness. Show some responsibility like previous generations made America greatest nation on earth.

“One of the things that terrifies me now is, as this is spread in the west is, there’s this sense of invulnerability among millennials.”

The only problem is that the people on spring break in Miami aren’t millennials. The youngest millennials are technically 24, the oldest are pushing 40. Boomers have just gotten so used to lashing out at millennials for buying avocado toast, they’ve forgotten how to tell time.
It is a little ironic that millennials are made about this after mocking the boomers for so long, but if you’re shut in the house without much to do besides look at Twitter, feelings will arise. The people below have a whole lot of feelings about being blamed for all the partying going down instead of Gen Z. I suspect it’s because they wish they could be partying. Also, they’re getting old, and that makes people cranky.
Millennials. Aren’t. Going. On. Spring. Break.
We. Are. Too. Old.
That. Is. Gen. Z.

MILLENNIALS ARE APPROACHING 40. MILLENNIALS HAVE MORTGAGES. MILLENNIALS ARE GOING BALD. MILLENNIALS LIVED THROUGH RAP METAL AND YET HATE THE RADIO NOW. MILLENNIALS WILL LEAVE A BAR IF IT IS TOO LOUD. PLEASE STOP SAYING “MILLENNIAL” WHEN YOU MEAN “TWENTYSOMETHINGS”

As you all continue to discuss COVID-19, please note that millennials are currently between the ages of 24 and 39.

People talk about all young people as “millennials” but the oldest millennials are basically 40.
Most millennials are 30-somethings staying at home making Alison Roman’s shallot pasta, trying to reason with their Boomer parents and freaking out about the Gen Zers on the beach

Public Service Announcement:
The youngest Millennials are 24 years old right now. So the vast majority of college students are Gen Z and have been for years. Most spring break partiers are Gen Z.

WHO DO YOU PEOPLE THINK MILLENNIALS ARE, EXACTLY???
BECAUSE WE ARE NOT THE ONES ON SPRING BREAK.
WE ARE IN OUR THIRTIES AND WE ARE YELLING AT OUR PARENTS TO STOP GOING TO CHURCH. FUCK. https://t.co/Os74lVFJRF

the millennials I know are in their mid-thirties, at home, and frantically taking their temperature every time they sneeze, I don’t think we’re the main generation partying for spring break.

Just a note. Gen z is the one spring breaking in Cuba. Millennials are the ones baking a shit ton of bread under quarentine. pic.twitter.com/BmYGBlyJcn
