17 Millennials Trends That Are Toxic, Offensive, And Straight-Up Cringeworthy

"Millennials are the worst modern generation."

Millennials may have a lot to say when it comes to "toxic" Gen Z trends, but Gen Z'ers are NOT afraid to call them out in return. So here are just some "toxic" millennial trends people are pointing out:

1. Not being able to take a joke:

millennials always calling somebody sensitive but u make a joke about them being old and here they come ready to throw they cane at u

Twitter: @thatstyshan

2. Complaining about Gen Z trends:

Millennials hopping on tiktok and throwing a fit because Gen Z has different fashion, style and music preferences is giving real big Boomer on Facebook complaining about “kids these days” energy. Fellow millennials, please stop. You’re embarrassing us.

3. Repeating the same cycle as previous generations:

I was really hoping millennials would be the generation to end the cycle of shitting on the next one but then you assholes went and created “cringe culture” and act like Gen Z kids doing Fortnite dances or making TikToks is the death culture.

4. Or, on the other end, being "super into" Gen Z:

the most annoying current millennial trait is being perfomatively into Gen Z

5. Literally dating like this:

“We’re not in a relationship! We’re just exclusively dating and staying at each others places most nights. It’s been going on for about 7 months.” -90% of the millennials I know.

6. Being ~experts~ on everything:

Millennials will say things like “I’m not pretentious” and on the same day be like “that wasn’t REAL charcuterie”

7. Putting pressure on all of this:

We put so much pressure on ourselves as millennials. We want a six figure income, the love of our life, a successful entrepreneurial side hustle, to travel every few months, a stable gym routine, 7-8 hours of sleep, work/life balance and mental/emotional stability. By 30.

8. Thinking everything should be a side hustle (shoutout to capitalism, though):

Normalizing side hustle culture is one of the greatest scams late stage capitalism pulled on millennials.

9. And, like, trying to sell everything:

6. Hustle culture millennials trying to start their own podcast and sell you beard oils, mattresses or detox kits

10. Acting really important:

Millennials love referring to a customer as “client”. A dash of fabricated importance goes a long way.

11. Making personality traits out of anything, like Hogwarts houses:

Dating geriatric millennials is weird. You'll be asking them what type of person they are and they respond with something like, "I'm a Hufflepuff".

Twitter: @katelsolomons

12. And mental health issues:

why would you put “crippling depression” in your tinder profile like it’s a fun and quirky personality trait? See this is why people think millennials are cringe

Twitter: @mayhueeee

13. Being hypocritical:

Millennial culture is preaching about the importance of paper straw while drinking out of a plastic cup

Twitter: @KimChi_Chic

14. Having a "personal brand" online:

“personal branding” is elder millennials trying to feel comfortable in an online world they weren’t born into. …i said what i said

Twitter: @SaraOttTweets

15. Pretty much acting like boomers:

Millennials that act like boomers are 11/10 toxic.

Twitter: @BigHarrison84

16. Or being worse than they are:

I’m going to say it. Millennials are the worst modern generation. All the worst aspects of boomers, but without anything to show for it

Twitter: @Rand0mGuest2

17. And finally, thinking anyone younger than they are doesn't remember ANYTHING:

Older millennials love to tell people in their 20s things like "you probably don't know what a vcr is"

Twitter: @MyFaceIsTired_
