What does CRBT stand for?

Crying real big tears

Ever received a text or message that read ‘CRBT’? It stands for “crying real big tears”. This slang term is usually used in emotionally loaded conversations to express deep feelings of sadness or happiness.

Let’s take an example. Say, your best pal, Mike, can’t find his cat. He is worried sick and drops you a text saying he’s CRBT. This means he’s shedding a lot of tears because he’s extremely worried about his feline friend.

On the flip side, CRBT can also represent tears of joy. If Mike finds his lost cat, he might text you again saying he’s CRBT. This time, he’s weeping big tears of relief and happiness because his beloved pet is safe.
