Columnist Gets Demolished By Twitter For Op-ed About Millennials

The oldest millennials are about to be 40 and the media is still somehow telling the entire generation to 'grow the eff up'—a tall order in the midst of constant ecological, financial and health crises. Not to mention war, unemployment, non-existent job security, housing market collapse, student debt, and on and on and on. Yesterday, journalist Jennifer Rosner got dragged by Twitter after the Chicago Tribune plugged her op-ed piece about millennials. When you read the article itself however, it becomes clear that the Chicago Tribune's tweet was a bit misleading. The post that riled up thousands of millennials read, 'writer Jennifer Rosner predicts COVID-19 lockdowns will force easy-breezy millennials to grow up.' In the actual op-ed, Rosner covers her ass by framing the various criticisms of millennials as her boomer dad's opinions. She simply suggests that the pandemic may have something to do with her fellow millennials suddenly embracing a more suburban sort of life that her father's generation might approve of. In any case, the Tribune's tweet was more than enough to hit a nerve. We've collected some of the spiciest roasts from before the controversial tweet got deleted.

Millennials Discuss The Most Annoying Stereotypes About Their Generation

For the past several years, the media has dubbed Millennials the lazy, entitled, 'snowflake' generation who go around killing entire industries with their discriminating taste. Despite the fact that Millennials are now between the ages of 25 and 40, they still get blamed for things like Covid-19 super-spreader events on college campuses. With how generously the term gets used as a general pejorative, you'd think 'Millennial' could just mean 'youngish person who I don't like.' Well many are sick and tired of taking crap from out-of-touch people who seem to consider their own generation to be completely blameless. One redditor asked the internet to vent about the most annoying stereotypes about Millennials they've heard, and the replies are pretty spicy. If you're a disgruntled Millennial who's over all the slander, these top responses from the Reddit thread will probably resonate with you.

16 Old People Who Are Really Living It Up On The Facebook

As millennials and zoomers abandon Facebook for younger and hipper apps such as Instagram and TikTok, the Zuckerberg site is quickly becoming a soapbox for baby boomers and the silent generation. They are out there sharing death announcements on gleeful, happy posts, or worse - posts that for some reason show off dirty nails or a picture of a well-manicured lawn. They are using the site's happy banner and avatar features to share bad news or frustration. And, as has pretty much always been the case, they are sharing many, many mysterious non sequiturs that they absolutely refuse to explain. 

While it may seem like we are cruelly mocking these well-meaning Facebook users, that could not be any farther from the truth. We actually find their eagerness to share their feelings with the world to be sweet and wholesome. We also find their dedication to staying current to be admirable. While it's generally more fun to spot a clueless boomer-post in the wild, there are some excellent internet destinations that take great care in collecting these amusing social media moments. 

The first of our favorite sources lives on Reddit, a place we have yet to see the elderly flexing their keyboard skills. The subreddit r/oldpeoplefacebook is exactly what it sounds like - an absolute mecca of disjointed posts from older folks who have yet to get the hang of the site. The community has been around since February 2013, and has amassed an impressive 1 million members in the eight years since its inception. This staggering membership really comes as no surprise - a lot of people have Facebook, and a lot of people know old people. While most of the submissions stay very true to the Facebook theme, there are a few amusing texts from elderly grandparents and nonsensical DMs thrown into the mix for good measure. 

The Facebook group "Please show to Jim ! ! HA ! ! HA ! !" is another wonderful place to take in the utter majesty of geriatrics on social media. While browsing the contributions of the group requires actually logging into the cursed site, we think it's well worth the sacrifice. This group is a little more varied in its offerings than r/oldpeoplefacebook. The group, which requires an invitation or a membership application, includes everything from amusing product reviews to actual letters (composed on a computer) and YouTube comments. While this group was created three years after their Reddit competitor, its members post a lot, which is convenient for very bored people who need to be on Facebook for work. We've put together some quality old-person-posts from both of the groups for your easy enjoyment, but we implore you to join and get in on the fun yourself. This kind of content doesn't last forever. Soon, the old people on the internet will have been using it for years. And things will probably be a lot less fun.

Cringeworthy Memes Your Family Probably Shared On Facebook

It feels like lots of young people have abandoned Facebook for Instagram and TikTok over the past couple years. This makes Facebook more of a site for those older family members who share cringeworthy content and think it's funny as hell. For a while it felt like the site was ruled by Minion mom memes, but those seem to have died down - making room for boomer conspiracy memes and tired jokes about marriage and the younger generations. The subreddit r/terriblefacebookmemes is an amazing archive of this corny content. And it helps us enjoy the cringe without having to log onto the cursed Zuckerberg site.

Businesses Post Cringe To Fit In With The Kids

Since the dawn of marketing, businesses have bent over backwards to appeal to the hottest demographic cohorts of the decades. There's nothing they won't co-opt, no 'hip slang' they won't butcher just to sell you a bag of chips. It's fun to imagine a highly neurotic social media marketing 'expert' in 2020 studying Urban Dictionary, furiously scribbling 'thicc' and 'mad sus bro' into a giant ledger. Brands aren't the only ones attempting to communicate with Zoomers through memes. Parents and teachers are putting on their 'fellow kids' hats in a desperate move to appeal to distracted students—though we think these attempts can be somewhat wholesome.

We've put together some of our favorite examples of corporate marketing teams and distressed teachers taking a stab at memeing. Most of the time they totally fail, but a few of these made us chuckle.

Land O Lakes Says Bye To Butter Maiden, Inspires Cringey Facebook Posts & Memes

Earlier this month dairy giants Land O Lakes announced the removal of the Native American 'butter maiden' from their packaging. The symbol, which some loyal fans viewed as iconic, has long received criticism after nearly 100 years of its use. The Native American woman was seen by many as an offensive and stereotypical depiction of North America's indigenous peoples. The move, despite its good intentions, has been met with a surprising and, frankly, ridiculous amount of backlash - mostly from boomers with Facebook accounts and lots of time on their hands. Angry users have been angrily spamming the Land O Lakes page, telling the brand they'll never buy the butter again, and shaming them for people "woke snowflakes." These people are, unsurprisingly, being mocked and chided on Twitter, both for being absolutely unhinged and for refusing to sympathize with the plight of real Native American women in the states.

On the other end of the spectrum, some people have taken it upon themselves to 'shop the butter packaging. The memes range from low-effort (Land-O Lakes...get it??) to the very easy political jab of replacing the maiden with Elizabeth Warren. The whole thing is pretty ludicrous, but in times like this, we just have to sit back, relax, and enjoy the memes.
