If you’ve ever had a Tamagotchi non-ironically, then we hate to break it to you…but you’re probably a little cheugy. This word – which sounds about as appealing as an overcooked steak – often refers to Millennial things that are outdated, out of trend, and past their prime.
Essentially, Gen Z created their own version of the word “basic.” It’s the new generation’s way to say “anti-fetch.” Yes, Regina, Karen did make that a thing!
Instead of getting caught up in some self-induced cyber bullying about how your favorite hairstyles and chunky jewelry are now super cringey, use the Internet for the only thing it’s good for: funny tweets. Because there aren’t any cheugy cooking videos. Yet.
