In the middle of the night, a Twitter user posted screenshots of what Gen Z'ers were saying about Millennials on TikTok.
Whether "commie cornhusker" really knew what she was doing when she posted TikTok screenshots on Twitter is yet to be determined. But regardless of the intent, her post drew the ire of Millennials, and an all-out generational war broke out Sunday morning on the internet.

Some of the tweets that followed were pretty entertaining.
Millennials wasted no time in responding:
gen z be like "been a long day of spitting on cops and catfishing pedophiles. time to tuck my stuffed animals into bed and tell each of them individually why they're perfect and deserve the world."— stacy’s dad. (@gen_z_baby) June 14, 2020
The one about fighting over hogwarts houses when we can’t afford a house was particularly hurtful but true— Clare Bogen (@clarebot) June 14, 2020
Don’t fight with Gen Z you can’t win. Once when I was teaching an SAT prep class, I told everyone to “quiet down” and one girl just said “hahah ok sweater!” (because I was wearing a sweater.) Every single one laughed at me....— Paul McCallion (@OrangePaulp) June 14, 2020
Even Gen X weighed in:
As a Gen X I'm delighted to see that we passed our bitter nihilistic humor and crushing cynicism on to our Gen Z kids.— EVEN DOOM THINKS THIS IS A BIT MUCH (@DOOM2020ORBUST) June 14, 2020
But Millennials shot back:
can that generation learn to make an image with more than 500 pixels in it— do NOT perceive me (@MeLlamoLlama_) June 14, 2020
And then, of course, there's this little gem:
Which generation are you? Do you think these generational stereotypes are accurate? Tell us in the comments!
