Watch This New Zealand Politician Drop A Casual “OK Boomer” While Being Heckled
Green MP Chloe Swarbrick was pretty sick of being interrupted.
This might signal the death-knell of the OK Boomer meme, but it’s still very funny: a New Zealand MP very casually fired back with “OK boomer” while being heckled.
Chlöe Swarbrick is an MP in the New Zealand Green party, and was just in parliament doing a speech about the Zero Carbon Bill. In extremely OK boomer energy, her speech was interrupted by a National party MP heckling her.
“The average age of this 52nd Parliament is 49 years old,” she says, holding up her hand and smiling, quickly dropping a “Ok boomer”, and then continuing. It’s a pretty good summary of the meme — a young politician battling for something important like a Zero Carbon Bill, and being extremely exasperated with the boomers impeding her.
Also, hilariously, the TV captions did not pick up the Gen Z inspired slang, an replaced it with “OK, Berma.”

She fired back with "okay boomer" but the captions on Parliament TV clearly have not yet got the memo on millennial slang: pic.twitter.com/zF8Ogp4Geu

Anyway, if you skip to about 1 minute in, you can watch it in all its glory.
can’t wait for the ok boomer meme to reach the natural end of its life cycle by having hillary clinton reply “ok boomer” to a trump tweet
