Boomer Remover

What does Boomer Remover mean?

‘Boomer Remover’ is slang for ‘COVID-19’

COVID-19 has been dubbed the “Boomer Remover” by some irreverent millennials and members of Generation Z. This is because the virus has been known to be more lethal for people aged 60 and above, a demographic that largely includes baby boomers – those born between 1946 and 1964, after the end of World War II.

There’s a sentiment among some younger people that boomers are responsible for a lot of the world’s present issues due to their recklessness and overindulgence. Those who harbor these harsh feelings might use “Boomer Remover” when referring to COVID-19, but this is highly disrespectful and narrow-minded. (If you’re a millennial or Gen Zer, it’s best to steer clear of such derogatory language).

Interestingly, some boomers, and people close to them, have also been known to use the term “Boomer Remover” but with a different intention. If a boomer seems to be disregarding the precautions and guidelines designed to halt the spread of the coronavirus, the term may be used as a harsh reminder of their vulnerability to the virus’s severe effects. It’s a shocking phrase aimed at encouraging them to take the pandemic more seriously.
