Millennials have gotten a lot of criticism from baby boomers over the years. What they haven’t gotten is criticism from the younger generations—until now. Gen Z has taken to Twitter to poke fun at millennials, and they’re not holding back.
Say what you will about gen Z, but these kids have a great sense of humor. Also, unlike baby boomers, they know how to make their jokes public on the internet. Keep reading to some of the best Tweets regarding millennial culture.
Just Did A Thing
“Just did a thing” might be the most millennial sentence ever. It’s in the running for official millennial catchphrase. Why did this catch on with late twentysomethings and early thirtysomethings?
What Did I Do?
“What did I do” is neck and neck with “just did a thing” in the race for millennial catchphrase. What do you do? You did a thing. They kind of go hand in hand.
Millennials do love their gifs. Why communicate something in words when you can use moving pictures with no sound? It seems more efficient, if you ask me. Lame, but efficient.
Thirty, Flirty, And Fun
Being 30 is not a personality trait. Just because you can’t believe that you’re thirty already doesn’t mean that the rest of the world cares about your age at all.
Drinking Is Also Not A Personality Trait
Millennials love to casually mention how many drinks they’ve had in an attempt to make their disorganized and aimless lives look cute. It’s not cute. Your liver doesn’t think that it’s cute.
Millennials, please calm down with your need for nostalgic content 24/7. We know you miss VHS tapes and being able to sleep in until noon on a Saturday. You’re an adult now. Get used to it.
Funky Funko Pops
For those of you not in the know, a Funko Pop is a toy figurine. They look like various characters from pop culture, and they have abnormally large heads. Millennials can’t get enough of them.
La Croix Isn’t Good
You can’t convince me that La Croix is good. It is simply not good. I get that it is low-calorie, but do you know what else is low-calorie? Regular water.
Bring On The Soup
Why is it that millennials can’t get enough soup? We get that soup is good, but is it really better than any other form of food? It’s just hot savory liquid.
Naming traditions are usually regional. We’re not going to hold all millennials accountable for this one, but millennials in Utah, you need to get your ish together. Lakelyn is not a name.
A Picture Of A Picture
How many times have you seen a millennial post a photo of three polaroids “haphazardly” scattered on a wood surface on Instagram? Too many? That’s what we thought. Stop this madness.
Get Off Of TikTok
Look, millennials, TikTok isn’t for you. If you don’t get the memes, you don’t belong there. If you do get the memes, just enjoy them in peace. Don’t start posting your own stuff.
Do Or Don’t, There’s No Winning
OK, I know it looks like we’re being hard on millennials here. If they have TikTok, they get criticized, and if they don’t, they get criticized even more. Oh well.
Get Over The ’90s
Being a ’90s kid isn’t an identity. We all grew up during a time, but the rest of us aren’t letting our lives be defined by the timing of Disney movie releases. Get over yourselves. We’re living in the ’20s now.
Do You Even English?
I cannot for the life of me understand why millennials feel the need to do this. Just use normal words the way they are supposed to be used. Stop adding “ing” to everything.
Not Part Of Your World
We get that you enjoy things from your childhood, but the obsession with Disney movies has to stop. You’re an adult now. Stop only playing Disney music on Spotify. It’s not cute.
You Don’t Know Smash Mouth?!
So what if we don’t know a single Smash Mouth song? Their songs aren’t even that good anyway. You just like them because they remind you of the first time you saw Shrek.
Avocados Aren’t A Personality
We get that avocados are delicious. Nobody is arguing with you there. But you didn’t invent eating avocados. People have literally been doing it for centuries. Why is it your defining feature?
At Least Twice
It is a widely known and accepted fact that millennials hate talking on the phone. They’ll text and Snapchat all day long, but if you try to call them, they’re not going to pick up unless it’s an emergency.
Gen Z might be eccentric in the way they dress, but at least they didn’t go through this hipster phase. Why the thick-rimmed glasses? Why the beanies? This whole wardrobe is so cringy.
Kids and a picket fence isn’t in the cards for millennials until they’re at least in their mid to late 30s. For now, they’re satisfied with their plants and maybe a cat.
The New 20s
Back in the day, people used to hope for a spouse and at least two children by the time they were finished with their 20s. Oh, how times have changed.
Making plans is the kryptonite of the millennial. They’re either working or too tired from working the day before. How are they supposed to date in this environment? It’s no wonder they’re all single.
A millennial conversation always begins with some self-deprecating humor and ends with a long awkward silence. This pattern is inescapable for millennials. Maybe they’ll get the hang of small talk soon.
That Upward Angle
Millennials seem to think that taking photos of their face from an upward angle is more flattering, but really, it just makes their foreheads look huge and their chins look really small.
Millennials know full well the feeling of going through a global recession. Now that there’s another one on the horizon, they feel pretty prepared. Maybe gen Z can look to them for some guidance.
Doggo Is Not A Word
Millennials everywhere, this is a public service announcement. “Doggo” is not a word. The word is “dog.” It doesn’t need extra syllables. It’s perfectly fine just the way it is.
Why Is This So True?
For some reason, baby boomers all know exactly what time they were born and millennials have no idea. That’s why they always document their kids’ time of birth. It’s important for them that their kids know they were born at 8:14 or whatever.
The Millennial Paradox
People like to say that millennials are spoiled and entitled, but then how do you explain the fact that so many of them are willing to work for no money?
