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

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

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

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

This stupid word should be brutally slaughtered to death slowly and painfully in the most harmful way. - PeeledBanana

Ugh, overrated is overrated. - lovefrombadlands

4 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

Gay literally means something terrible in the internet now... kinda like cringe... no offense - SoaPuffball

The best insult - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I hate when people say this, it's so mean and hurtful, because you wouldn't want to die :( - lovefrombadlands

No. - Therandom

6 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

I get offended when someone uses this word to call something dumb and this is coming from a high-functioning autistic girl. - PerfectImpulseX

It is never okay to make fun of someone with autism

8 Sucks

Can't stand this damn word

I want to kill this word!

This sucks - 0744rose

9 Troll

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

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. - naFrovivuS

I hate trolls - christangrant

10 WTF

What is one supposed to reply to this?

What Why is this so high! - Elina

They reply: "I KNOW RIGHT?! "

The Contenders


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 guys, because if you hate on this word Lil B and Spodermen will steal all your swag - venomouskillingmachine

12 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

13 Epic Fail!

I want to punch someone in the face when I hear this the fad just won't end and it's not even cool. - happyhappyjoyjoy

Say this all the time...

Happhappyjoyjoy, that was an epic fail.

Hate it.. - Ananya

14 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 - lovefrombadlands

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

Seriously what DOES THIS MEAN

15 First!

For the 8478772139th time, no one cares. - SpectralOwl

What are you first for?


NINTH! - lovefrombadlands

16 Terrible
17 Racist

22 Salty

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

How I about we poor some salt on their eyes? (Not actually) - PeeledBanana

That describes my fries. - lovefrombadlands

My school:
*jerk takes your laptop case with your laptop inside it*
Me: Give me that back!
Jerk: No.
*I'm getting pretty ticked off now and am starting to show it to the jerk*
Jerk: You're salty.
Oh, so now that I'm angry at you, I'm salty?!

23 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"

Hey BRO! WhATS UP? Just CHILL - 0744rose

28 What's up?

What if nothing is "UP"? What happened to "How are you", it's way more caring than what's up!

You answer "The sky, clouds, and the sun" when people ask you this - kaitlynrad11

I honestly like this one...

THE SKY - lovefrombadlands
