A Trending Hashtag Trying to Shame Millennials Failed Spectacularly

Millennials take a lot of unjustified heat when it comes to everything from their lack of financial foresight, career gumption, real estate savvy… basically anything that apparently earns you respect from elder adults. Despite studies proving that millennials are not only totally motivated, but are in fact a hardworking generation right across the world (even while facing unprecedented hardships passed down from previous generations), the stereotype lives on. If you happened to be on social media over the weekend, you’ll have noticed #HowToConfuseAMillennial taking over streams. While first spewing stereotypes galore, young peeps took over the hashtag to have their say and fight back against what they perceived as bullying b.s.

Though it’s now saturated with “confuse ‘em by voting for Trump” kind of tweets (worth a read, BTW), the hashtag first took aim at young adults with no-holds-barred and groan-worthy attempts at humor….

But millennials were NOT having it…

And they fired back…

And they just kept it coming…
