Millennials horrified by vicious insults from younger generation: ‘Why are they so furious at us?'

Kelsey Weekman

Each generation has its own stereotype.

Baby Boomers are known for being technologically challenged and intolerant to change. Millennials are apparently overly sensitive and kill everything. Gen Z is known for its obsession with social media and lack of focus.

According to the American Psychological Association, these stereotypes are often wrong, and can even be harmful in an age-diverse workplace.

Generally, there is tension between the youngest and oldest generations in a shared space, like Gen Z and “Boomers,” but the latest battle in the generational wars is between Gen Z and millennials,

Twitter user local__celeb uncovered a series of TikTok comments in which younger users roasted the generation ahead of them.

Gen Z users criticized millennials for saying words like “doggo” and “adulting,” living in one-bedroom apartments, oversharing their “Harry Potter” houses and being obsessed with avocado toast.

“All they do is drink wine, post cringey ’90s kid’ memes, talk about tech start-up and lie,” one user wrote.

“Millennials are monsters and I stand by that,” another said.

Reactions have been mixed, to say the least.

Some say the critiques are harsh, and members of Gen Z are in for a “rude awakening.”

“If millennials are finding it impossible to own houses and hold down grown-up jobs, it won’t get any better for the next generations,” one Twitter user said.

“We come in peace goodness gracious, why are they so furious at us?” another wrote.

Others couldn’t argue with the criticism.

“I for one welcome our new Gen Z overlords,” a Twitter user said.

“They’re not wrong,” another wrote.

Local__celeb said the original video where she found the comments was uploaded by TikTok user mayalepa.

“Tired of Boomers bunching Gen Z and millennials together because I personally don’t want to be associated with people who think Harry Potter movies are a personality trait,” she said in the video.

Harsh, but maybe fair.
