OK Boomer is a slang phrase used to dismiss or mock older people who are part of the "Baby Boomer" generation (born between 1946 and 1964). It gained popularity in early 2019 as a meme and catchphrase on the Internet.
The phrase is most often used by young adults and teenagers to make fun of older people's outdated ideas and views on politics, the economy, and the environment. While the saying may be used verbally in person to put down a Baby Boomer, it is most often shared on social sites, like Twitter and Facebook.
OK Boomer may also be used as a general response to conservative ideas that oppose those held by younger, liberal people. This use of the phrase is not constrained to the age of the person sharing the viewpoint. For example, a 30-year-old who is against raising the minimum wage might be met with the "OK Boomer" retort. In response to the popularity of the OK Boomer phrase, "OK Millennial" was coined as a clapback for older adults to use.
