Millennial Slang Is Dead, Long Live Gen-Z Slang (28 Tweets)

Every generation has its slang words, but in the past, they would slowly die out as that generation aged and found better things to do than set trends. Unfortunately, the internet has changed this natural language evolution, and we’re constantly ripping through new slang words and phrases on social media faster than the human mind can really process. Slang terms make copies of themselves through memes, get adopted by brand accounts, and before you know it your dad is calling his brother a fucboi, or something else horrible.

Recently, a TikTok of Gen-Z kids making fun of Millennial slang went viral, and Millennials felt… attacked.

Last year, pop culture writer Joe Berkowitz drew attention to awful Millennial slang with a very simple question, asking his followers, “What is the worst slang that became universally accepted in the 2010s?”

There’s a lot of material to cover over the last decade, but at least Joe’s question rounded up all the worst Millennial slang in one place. Some came immediately to mind:

But a lot has happened in the last ten years. A lot of the phrases people complain about feel like they just popped up in the last few months. Others feel like an ancient throwback even if they were only from 2018. And who even remembers YOLO?!

Scroll through and think about letting go of some of these slang words in the next ten years. If you don’t you could get mercilessly roasted by Gen Z.
