Most of us know the word bop to mean a good song, or dancing along to music, but Gen Z has come up with their own meaning of the word.
TikTok user @theyhateonbrian1 made a now-viral video with 706.1K views and 22.3K likes ,explaining exactly what the word “bop” means.
In the video, Brian says that a “bop” can pertain to men and women, but mostly women. He goes on to explain that a “bop” is, “Somebody who posts their body on the internet … or somebody who just be getting around with everybody, who be linking with every dude, who be around all the dudes.”
He goes on to say that this doesn’t mean that a woman has to hook up with all the guys, but just that she is surrounded by guys. He gives an example of a TikTok with eight dudes and one girl.
Brian continues to say that when a girl posts her “body for views,” she is a bop but it is the exact same with boys. He says, “If you’re a man and mess with mega females, you’re a bop,” although the phrase does get used more often on females.
