What does BTHO mean?

Back the heck off

When someone is in a sour mood and wants to be left alone, they might use the slang term “BTHO”. Imagine a scenario where John is constantly pestered about when he’s going to get married. He might snap back with a quick “BTHO!”.

More often than not, you’d encounter BTHO while texting or chatting online with someone who’s a bit grumpy. Perhaps you’ve annoyed them or stepped on their toes. They’ll throw a “BTHO” your way to show their annoyance.

It’s not only in personal communication that you might see BTHO. It’s also common in online forums or social media. Especially in heated debates about controversial subjects like politics, religion, or which athlete is the best of all time, you might see the term BTHO being used.
