Generation X and some Baby Boomers on Twitter thought it would be a great idea to make fun of millennials on Twitter and started the hashtag #HowToConfuseAMillennial. It was all fun and games for the Twitter elders at first, tweeting jokes about how handing the younger generation a map will confuse them, how they have no idea what a Walkman or phone booths are, and of course, they didn’t forget to make jokes about how teens today are too dependent on technology.

But it didn’t take long for the millennials to take over the hashtag and own it. The hashtag suddenly turned into a collection of sarcastic and shade-throwing tweets and almost instantly, the ones who started the hashtag were the ones getting schooled. They also made use of the hashtag to fire back on topics of racism, economics, and more.

Here are some of our favorite shady clapbacks:

Admit it, we’ve all met someone who really wanted to pursue the arts but wasn’t allowed to. All for the sake of being “practical”

Oops. You really can’t blame the young ones for arguing with you if you’re being racist, sexist etc.

Too much truth on this tweet, though.

Or only 3 months in prison for sexual assault instead of a life sentence. *coughs* Brock Turner *coughs*


Now this is just too much but yup, she went there.

Not to be biased but we think the millennials won this Twitter war. Next time, make fun of them on a social media platform that isn’t controlled by them.

We doubt that exists, though. 😉
