2 Overrated

Should be Number 1 - DCfnaf

This word has been brutally misused everywhere to everything popular. Good or bad. Nickelback overrated? Pfft, get your dictionaries out.

Overrated is such an overrated word and misused to the point where it apparently means bad now - Randomator

There NEVER was anything that is overrated!
The word overrated itself is overrated and THAT'S IT!

3 Gay

People see being gay as the most obscene think in the world. You don't like it when your persecuted for something about you. How would you feel if you were gay and you were seen as the lowest thing on earth. It also sucks that religious books tell people to hate them and kill them simply for who they are.

Especially Christianity. Just read Leviticus. People shouldn't be wasting so much effort on taking away gays rights and been nasty. If you're not gay you have no rights over a gay's life.

The lowest people on earth are pedophiles not gays anyway. At least taking away their rights will protect children.

We Christians don't hate gays just because we disagree with their lifestyles.

"That's gay" when used to describe something bad. Besides being a homophobic remark, it means "happy", and that should be the only definition for it.

I hate this word because many people say is gay something they don't like... some things deserve the word but other things don't deserve it only because they don't like it - rock2metal

I'm fine if it's just a joke but if you unironically use gay as an insult then you have issues or you're just stuck in the past. - DarkBoi-X

4 Cringe

I remember when cringe was used correctly. Now it's used stupidly. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

! CRINGE! Hey look, that girl is singing. CRINGE! CRINGE! #CRINGE! This word is so annoying

It's meaningless and pretentious how frivolous people use it. It's trending on the Internet as more people use it more to asser their opinion. This needs to stop

I never used this word. - Userguy44

5 Autistic

Not only is this overused, but is morally wrong. It isn't their fault if someone is autistic. So don't use it as an insult. If you highly believe autism just makes someone look dumb, then that disgusts me, because I have high function autism myself, and I have an above average IQ. - SpectralOwl

Using autism as an insult is horrible. In fact using any disability as an insult is disgusting. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Listen, folks. Autism is a real thing. It doesn't mean "stupid" or "cringeworthy". Rather, it is a mental condition/disorder that acts as what I call a "tilt". One side (for me, existential and linguistic intelligence) is better than average, at the cost of social skills. Now, don't get me wrong. It can be a curse far more often than a blessing. This includes when people use it to insult random things. It's offensive and outright cruel. - Cyri

This is being mean. I am autistic and whenever someone uses this as an insult it offends me, makes me cry, and everything else. - Ilovestephanie

Keep yourself safe - Not_A_Weeaboo

Never, ever say ANYTHING like this to ANYONE.

My cousins are garbage human beings, by the way.

This word should be banned forever!

It was overused in like 2016 - VeganTurtle

So overused. - blackflower

8 Cancer

Whatever happened to cancer being defined as a serious health disease that people are suffering from rather than a stupid term to describe anything people hate. This can actually be very disrespectful to people who are suffering from cancer and those who had to go through losing their love ones since they suffered from cancer. - HoldenFanatic

This is actually the worst, it should be 1 - venomouskillingmachine

Joint with autistic as an insult this is flat out awful - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

As a girl who had a friend that died from cancer this being used as an insult just makes me depressed. - Ilovestephanie

12 Racist

This word is so overused and annoying - christangrant

No I'm not I'm just saying this word is overused I honestly don't care about what color someone is everyone is equal. Plus where am I being racist in that comment? you're an example of why this word is overused - christangrant

Especially when it’s used wrong. - blackflower

13 Troll

Nowadays it seems like it's the only word people think they can use to describe any negativity whatsoever. Really, really stupid. I've been called a troll on YouTube for telling a user to stop arguing with another. Really, really, REALLY stupid.

This word died around the time that Rage Comics died. I hate the sudden influx of people using this word, thinking they're "trendy" and "cool" for using a word strictly used online. Any time I see the word "troll" on this website I cringe because it's old and dead and needs to stay that way. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

He's the one that won't let the goats cross the bridge. - giddyjoker

But trolls are amazing. - DarkBoi-X

14 Harassment

Annoying on the news. Annoying on the internet.

15 Daddy

You know what, I am sick to death of seeing "daddy" being used in comment sections of YouTube videos and in tumblr posts/urls by younger people. It's disgusting. Thanks to this, a lot of people (including me) have been thrown off calling our dads 'daddy' since it will make us look like freaks. Oh and a message for them: FATHER'S DAY IS NOT FOR YOUR CREEPY OBSESSION. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

I can't speak with my dad because the new meaning of this word

Everyone calls people this and I'm just confused, like what is the point?


YOLO= Carpe diem (seize the day in Latin) for stupid people

Yolo is so dumb

YOLO = I Am An Idiot. Anyone who says this is saying I Am An Idiot.

YOLO = I Want To Kill Myself

Yes I'm always getting mad at others because they curse every 2 seconds - DrayTopTens

BAD WORD NEEDS TO BE 1 it is stupid! - ArcticWolf

18 Duh

People sound arrogant when they say this. - Userguy44

The people using this word are actually the ones who are salty.

This describes some poor English teacher's tears. - Cyri

22 SJW


23 Savage

Savage nowadays just means annoying behavior that is somehow considered as awesome. It really isn't. Annoying is annoying no matter what it is. - NuMetalManiak

Online, the word savage means going up to a dude from the hood and kick them in the balls. - VeganTurtle

24 Terrible
25 Bro

I don't think its annoying when they say it in a positive sentence, but in a negative sentence, and if they use it all the time, its annoying!

You should only use "bro" if you're African American. Nothing more pathetic than little white kids trying to be as cool as black people and throwing "bro" in every sentence. Ultimate cringer : "U mad, Bro? ". Awful.

I am not your bro. Especially if it's to say "F you, bro"

That guy that got tazed in Florida used this one. - giddyjoker

I'm confused does it mean hello or reply?

This... Is spelled "Hollar".

30 Bae

It actually means poop in Danish.

Bae is so useless there is already enough "love names" and you wouldn't want to call who you love poop

This should be number 1. Pronounce it right, or don't even make it a thing.

Yes, one of my friends (now my enemy) used to use this too much. "HOW YOU GOING BAE? WHERE'S MY BAE? CAN I HAVE A HUG, BAE? " - WheresMyGuitarPick

31 Dank

What does this even mean?

Short form of dunk tank? - giddyjoker

Good memes though. - DarkBoi-X

"What does this even mean? "
I think you must be talking about "Dank Memes" which are yet more unfunnier and not really dank version of memes. Honestly, I think wet is better word but, still dank is mostly used just for memes.

32 -Ass

Goodass, fatass, kickass... Can you stop adding ass to every word?!

Any word that has ass in it is seriously annoying. The word badass is extremely overused.

What a Bad-Ass idea. (It's bad.)

Oh there's this badass kickass flavorass cheesyass new social network and it has funckyass superass coolass - Cheeseduck

33 Ripoff

When someone takes the tag off the pillow... - giddyjoker

All I hear is Fortnite battle royals is ripoff of PUBG(it is a ripoff, but people keep repeating it) - VeganTurtle

34 Selfie

The annoying word to end all annoying words

Guys I like gotta take a selfie cause I look so hot and haters gonna hate rofl I have so much swag and #dope bros you just saw an annoying sentence right there

In.. The dictionary. What has the world become?

But first...LET ME TAKE A SELFIE! *plays The Chainsmoker's song audio*

35 Sexist
36 Liberal

This word used to refer to anything that was related to liberalism, but nowadays, it's virtually a useless buzzword along with "conservative". I highly do not recommend making a drinking game out of this word and its variants. Same thing goes with "conservative" and its variants. - WindWakerFan

I'm not even a liberal and dear god the word has pretty much lost all it's meaning. - Swellow

37 Illuminati

There's like, these really annoying (whatever you want) is ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED! videos on youtube where they put unrealistic reasons that don't even make sense why something is illuminati. It's so annoying!

38 Yo

"yo"... Uhmm, yes... And?

Why are people on this site like I was born in the wrong generation because Yoko and swag annoys me?

This is the word my elder sister uses she uses yo instead of's so annoying... - 0744rose

39 Butthurt

Is this what happens to someone after being kicked in the rear end? - giddyjoker

I don't like butthurt people because they get offended so DAMN EASILY - AlphaQ

40 Chilling

Who put you in the freezer!?

It means hanging out. What is with these pplz

41 Pwned

What does that even mean? Is it supposed to be like owned, but with an intentional typo?

Yeah, Bright Side is too big. - Cyri

I hate these comments!

44 Weeb

This annoys me so much when I browse through a chat lobby. Really? Why use this word? Because it's CRINGE. Also, it can be offensive to people. - Kwaysar

Makes me think of Weebles. You know, those things that wobble, but don't fall down. - giddyjoker

45 C**k
46 Triggered

It's not even safe to feel angry about something any more without meme slang rolling in. - Entranced98

47 Chillax

Reminds me of a laxative.

An example of illiterates combining 2 words for their own use. The idiots are slowly taking over the world!

48 Legit

Are you, like, legit?

49 FTW

What does this even mean? "Find the Water", "Fear the Whale"?!? Someone tell me what this means please. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

It means for the win

For the win for the loss.
