What does Vawulence mean?

Vawulence means Violence

In the world of social media and online discussions, ‘vawulence’ is a term used in place of ‘violence’. This is a perfect example of algospeak, a kind of slang developed to evade automatic content filters on social media platforms.

The term was first used by Nigerians to sidestep Facebook’s censorship of posts and comments that contained the word violence. ‘Vawulence’ is primarily used by Nigerians, but it has also seeped into the slang vocabulary of others.

These days, it’s not uncommon to see ‘vawulence’ being used instead of violence in various memes. For instance, memes showing Kermit the Frog promoting ‘vawulence’ are quite popular.
