then Henry’s visual dominance is vital in transforming popular narratives – of who gets to be seen and why. Content refers to the ideas and ideologies conveyed by a meme; form contains the visual and audible patterns in the meme – its mise-en-scène (or meme-en-scène); and stance refers to how the audience positions themselves in relation to the text ( Shifman, 2013b). In response, Cassidy commented ‘Awww’ on the post, demonstrating her appreciation of ‘loveofhuns’ and its earnest and heartfelt dedication to her. Like much of online culture, “OK Boomer” tells us something about the cultural dominance of upper-middle-class youth.

Many people became aware of OK boomer through the October New York Times article, which focused on teens who had taken the meme offline and were turning it into merchandise and fashion statements.Fan-creator interactions are mediated through this page, which functions as a comical hub for fans of a specific strand of 1990s and 2000s British culture. Indeed, while the ladette was configured in the British press/tabloids and thus shaped through media spectacle, this article further suggests that transformations online have led to the discursive creation of the hun in the digital realm and through her ‘memeability’ ( Mercer and Sarson, 2020).

While this laughter often has competing and conflicting messages, online spaces have evidently forged new spaces for female connectivity, collectivity and solidarity. Before analysing huns via memes on Instagram, I begin by contextualising the power of laughter and how it has been aimed at female figures in the contemporary Anglo-American media landscape.If young people aren’t willing to engage in civil conversation, older generations should ask themselves why. Writing for The American Conservative, senior editor Rod Dreher criticized the Walt Disney Company's vocal opposition to the Florida law, and a gradual inclusion over the years of LGBT-focused content in Disney productions, promotional marketing materials, and theme park attractions (such as "Disney Pride"), as being an example of institutional "grooming" by a major corporate brand that is synonymous with children's entertainment and innocence.

Thus, memes are ideal formats for fans and followers to consolidate their affective relationship with huns.

American television comedian Bill Maher also took aim at what he described as a sense of impatience and moral superiority among Generation Z's activists such as environmentalist Greta Thunberg, in a "New Rule" segment for his HBO current events program Real Time titled "OK Zoomer.

Framing something as ‘just a joke’ through irony is, as Rosalind Gill (2007) suggests, ‘“having it both ways”, of expressing sexist, homophobic or otherwise unpalatable sentiments in an ironized form, while claiming this was not actually “meant”’ (p. I talked to my dad about it and he said the reason the ‘boomers’ get so mad is because they feel as if they earned the right to say such things to us kids because they worked hard for what they have,” said 16-year-old Adriana Lepera, who talked to Vox via Instagram.He has developed a reputation, as Leah Tomkins (2020) argues, for ‘picking and choosing whether and when to show up’ (p.
