OK Millennial

What does OK Millennial mean?

Whatever, young person

‘OK Millennial’ is a sarcastic remark used to poke fun at or disregard the opinions and ideas of the younger generation, specifically those born between the early 1980s and late 1990s to early 2000s. This term gained popularity in 2019 as a comeback to the “OK Boomer” phrase.

It’s a common phrase among older folks, especially Baby Boomers, to challenge the potentially uninformed or naive perspectives of the younger generation on subjects such as politics, economics, and environmental issues.

While it can be used in face-to-face interactions to belittle younger individuals, it finds its most frequent use on social networking platforms. Sites like Twitter and Facebook are often abuzz with this slang, where it is shared and reshared.
