Unless you've been living under a rock for the past five years, you're probably familiar with the term "AF".

It stands for "as fuck" in case you actually were living under a rock and didn't now that.

Here's the problem though — HOW IS "AF" PRONOUNCED?

Some people pronounce it by saying the individual letters "A" and "F" instead of saying it like a word.

Others literally say "Af" which sounds like the beginning of "afro".

Twitter users have been talking about this for a while. Many have created polls to survey opinions.

How would you pronounce “af” if saying it aloud? Ex: “Same af” or “Relatable af”

People have turned to Reddit...
