OK Boomer origin: Where did the term OK boomer come from?
The OK boomer meme comes from the tension between the baby boomer generation and generation z and millennials.
Baby boomers mock millennials for expecting ‘participation trophies’ for achieving the bare minimum and condemn them for ‘destroying’ once-stable industries like retail chains. They also like to make fun of the millennial penchant for eating expensive avocado toast for brunch.
Millennials criticise baby boomers for ‘mortgaging the future’ and ‘hoarding wealth’. They think baby boomers had far better job opportunities and that they’re unfairly criticised for not “getting a job and paying off their student loans.”
