After A Lot Of Outrage, The Dictionary Destroys Any Claims Of ‘Boomer’ Being A Racial Slur

by Ayoub Mask

The relationship between Millennials and Baby Boomers has been a nightmare, they never seem to agree on anything and if you add Gen Z to the mix, things get even worse.

It's true that generational relations have always been broken, but this time it's way worse than anyone expected. It began when teens started replying by “Ok, Boomer,” on any comment made by a clueless older person making remarks about our modern world today. Especially whenever they insist on telling kids what exactly they're doing wrong in life.

Soon after that, this so-called "slur" started spreading rapidly and a lot of people started claiming that “Boomer” is a slur for a “minority group.”

The world's first "ageist slur"

Soon after that first Tweet, more people started supporting the same claim
