Gen Z-ers Are Throwing Shade at Millennials on TikTok

It just seems to be a fact of life: There will always be feuds between different generations.

Typically, those fights are between older generations, who look down upon or criticize younger generations (see also: Baby Boomers and literally every other younger generation).

But now, Gen Z-ers are getting in on the action and throwing some major shade at Millennials. And of course they’re doing it on TikTok, the most Gen Z platform ever made.

According to researchers, Millennials are people who were born between the years 1981 and 1996. Gen Z, on the other hand, are people born between 1997 and 2012. They grew up in very, very different times, especially as it relates to technology.

It all started with this video from user @wholesam:


He made fun of Millennials for using the word “adulting” and for taking coffee breaks. Other people quickly piled on, however.

They took serious issue with Millennial’s love of “Harry Potter:”

They also apparently think Millennials use the word “doggo” too much:

However, at least one person pointed out that Gen Z threw a hissy fit when Millennials started using TikTok — so I guess this feud goes both ways after all!

Dang, what else will Gen Z-ers take issue with next? Avocado toast? Student loan debt? Living with your parents? Lack of work ethic? Now they’re starting to sound just like the Boomers. You can hardly tell them apart!

Do you agree with the Gen Z assessment of Millennials? Will we ever live to see a time when generations don’t fight with each other?

We’d love to hear your opinions!
