What does TPT stand for?

Trailer park trash

TPT is a derogatory label for people who live in trailer parks. People often use it online when messaging or on social media to describe others who are or appear to be poor, typically based on their appearance and behavior.

The "trailer trash" insult that birthed the TPT acronym dates back to the early-1950s. However, TPT didn't come about until the early-2000s when online chatting and mobile phone user arose.

While most people use TPT as an insult, some are proud of their humble origins and reputation. For example, friends may joke about being TPT when they come from low-income families.


I heard her say that you and your family are a bunch of TPT
Wow, she has no class
