BWBR is a slang term that usually refers to a brunette acting like what is commonly referred to as a “dumb blonde.” This term is often used in a teasing or sarcastic manner.

The humor in this term is based on the stereotype that blondes are not intelligent. However, this stereotype is outdated and is not generally accepted today.

Using BWBR implies that the person using it thinks this stereotype is still relevant and funny. It’s worth noting that this term can be considered as mean-spirited, as it makes assumptions about people’s intelligence based on their hair color.

If someone uses the term BWBR towards you, it can be a good opportunity to remind them that stereotypes like these are not only unkind, but also out of date.
