About this deal

My engineering org has 40 engineers in it, but the CEO won't let me hire any dedicated engineering managers. After my [OK boomer] video, I got a few comments from ‘boomers’ explaining how many jobs they had and how hard they have to work, proving the joke to be true,” she told Vox. Like much of online culture, “OK Boomer” tells us something about the cultural dominance of upper-middle-class youth. Drinking, crying, laughing, partying and her emotional, everyday ‘onlineness’ are affective responses deemed humorous by fans of the hun.

But if we are to consider age, let’s try to harness the wisdom that our working-class elders can impart to us: the stories about bosses betraying their promises, about political elites neglecting those with nothing to offer them, about lifetimes of hard work not being rewarded with a peaceful retirement or even the respect of those we nurtured. Before analysing huns via memes on Instagram, I begin by contextualising the power of laughter and how it has been aimed at female figures in the contemporary Anglo-American media landscape. It’s not capitalists, it’s not the politicians who serve them – it’s “boomers”, or everyone born in the two decades after the second world war.Indeed, ‘[o]ne of the generic demands of soap opera is that there should be substantial, even assertive, female roles within its representation of the family and community’ ( Aston and Clarke, 1994: 212). With more than 6 million views in four days [20] [22] and more than 30 million that month, [23] [24] the video has been described by viewers as both cute and cringey. In some ways, this mocking of working-class-based femininity bears similarities to Matt Lucas’s depiction of Vicky Pollard in Little Britain.

They feel as if they can say whatever they want about our generation and no repercussion,” Lepera told Vox, “but when we make a joke about them it’s the end of the world.

Everybody in Gen Z is affected by the choices of the boomers, that they made and are still making,” teen entrepreneur Nina Kasman told the New York Times in October. In: Polak S, Trottier D, Williams M (eds) Violence and Trolling on Social Media: History, Affect, and Effects of Online Vitriol.

These have included: X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke, Northern actor Sheridan Smith, reality TV and Celebrity Big Brother star Kim Woodburn, the hosts of daytime women’s show Loose Women (ITV, 1999–), 2000s pop star Sophie Ellis-Baxtor, a plethora of drag queens and morning talk show host Trisha Goddard. This suggests that women are camp but do not knowingly produce themselves as camp and, furthermore, do not even have access to a camp sensibility. After all, the problem with generational analysis is that even though it claims to be rooted in economic realities, it cannot see the reality of class. According to Diane Negra and Julia Leyda (2021), this figure ‘crystallizes a particular constellation of entitled white supremacy and class privilege into a scathing dismissal of white female anger that deserves attention’ (p. Imogen Tyler (2008) uses this ‘figurative methodology’ in her work on chavs to explore how ‘[s]ocial classifications are complex political formations that are generated and characterized by representational struggles’ (p.

It’s true, of course, that young people will be entering into a potentially even more perilous future than their elders. Using the Instagram account ‘loveofhuns’ as a case study, I examine three memes from this page to showcase how huns are represented in complex and competing ways. deeming it an ageist slur in a special report on "succeeding in bridging the generational gap and fighting ageism". This is particularly salient because, though this drag queen dismantles gendered expectations of masculinities and femininities, the treatment of celebrity huns is reinforced, encouraged and supported through BAFTA’s approval and cultural elevation of this classed caricature.

in that they display an ironic awareness of working-class women’s speech patterns online in a distinctly British context. The repetition and recurrence of such figures across multiple media contribute to their image as unruly, distorted and often derogatory. According to Urban Dictionary (2018), a crowdsourced online dictionary for slang words and phrases, it is a ‘standard response from a lower-class British female on Facebook to a friend of the same ilk, usually in response to an attention-seeking / ambiguous statement’.

In the series’ most popular and anticipated challenge – Snatch Game – competing drag queens are challenged to perform in character as a celebrity of their choosing in a parody of the Match Game (NBC, CBS, and ABC, 1962–) to demonstrate their improvisation ability, make-up skills and competence in creating comic characters.
