TikTok’s hottest meme is pitting the Youths against the Olds, but the truth about this generational standoff can be found in its shades of gray. The anonymous creator of ‘loveofhuns’ uses incorrect spelling/grammar and leaves two kisses at the end of their sentence when celebrating Natalie Cassidy.

Though ‘loveofhuns’ has both an Instagram and Twitter account, Instagram was the platform of choice to generate data for this investigation because its primary function is visual distribution, unlike other social media sites such as Twitter or Facebook, which are both text- and image-based. 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. This middle-class wellness entrepreneur differs significantly from the hun, who is not always young and slim but, more often than not, is an ageing celebrity in the British media landscape who does not adhere to or live up to normative beauty standards. Gen Z launched a preemptive strike against baby boomers earlier this fall using the most powerful By analysing three memes from the Instagram account ‘loveofhuns’, I explore how this new classed and gendered figure is constructed in online spaces and question whether the hun is a subject or object of laughter.

and it can be perceived as positive in its sincerity, the demystifying qualities of its irony, and the communal foundations of its humour (p.

She used the meme to respond to his assertion that she should be working — even though she doesn’t even have a driver’s license yet, which she says makes it harder for her to find a job. 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. These fans are creating pages dedicated to huns on the social media site Instagram, with ‘loveofhuns’, ‘HUNSNET’, ‘thehunlife’ and ‘uokhunofficial’ being prime examples. This publicly imagined figure thus captures an underlying crisis or anxiety, which is then mobilised to create boundaries between individuals and/or groups.The phrase ‘OK boomer’ is itself an implicit and indeed somewhat passive admission as to who is really in charge,” he decided. What’s largely missing from the “elders know best” logic is any acknowledgment that it’s part of the problem, and that younger, well-read adults might also have wisdom and insight into the problems they’re dealing with.

Now it’s war, the Times asserts: Gen Z has finally snapped over climate change and financial inequality. In a New York Times article last week, Taylor Lorenz documents the “OK Boomer” meme that’s become “ a rallying cry for millions of fed up kids” and an “endlessly repeated retort to the problem of older people who just don’t get it”. Boomers — the generation born roughly between 1946 and 1965 — scoff that millennials expect “participation trophies” for doing the bare minimum. In this way, humour can be multifarious, ambiguous and polysemic depending on who is ‘in on’ the joke. With all this repetitive back-and-forth — seriously, there are bingo cards — it’s no wonder the most polarizing meme of the year is a two-word dismissal of the whole debate.In an attempt to provide a retort to the meme, Myrna Blyth, the senior vice president of the senior advocacy group AARP, stated in an interview that boomers are “the people that actually have the money. Breakout stars from the 2010s, such as reality TV performer Gemma Collins, are also deemed huns in the British media landscape. Their new perspective can lend value to the conversation if you look at them as a powerful asset to unleash.

This ambiguity has led to ‘its appropriation to both conservative and radical ends, both to mock the weak and to provide a space in which to challenge and upturn social conventions that serve to stigmatise and alienate those marginalised by mainstream society’ ( Davies and Ilott, 2018: 6).

Social media has become a significant site for this affective intensity, and audience engagement with huns is crucial in locating their humour.
