Gen Zers are calling out millennials over a ‘cringey’ new TikTok trend: ‘What is wrong with them?’
If you haven't heard the TikTok song "Side Part and Skinny Jeans", consider yourself lucky.
The TikTok famous song is the latest internet trend triggering beef between Gen Zers and Millennials. It's also just the latest entry in a long-running feud on the app.
First, there was the "old-school" dance challenge, where Millennials were ridiculed by Gen Z for trying to create their own viral dance trends. And then, of course, Gen Zers decided that side panels and skinny jeans - two staples of millennial fashion - were officially uncool.

Now the two generations are fighting over a viral TikTok audio allegedly created by a @mammybanter. The song, a remix of Lizzo's "Boys", was introduced to Gen Zers as a kind of "diss track".
The original video entitled was deleted, but that didn't stop it from spreading like wildfire. Often times, Gen Z TikTokers film themselves to respond to the song.
The song - which defends side panels and skinny jeans, of course - also includes the poop emoji, claiming millennials "gave" Gen Z WiFi.
Gen Zers naturally took these texts and ran with them. In addition to the reaction clips, they have also posted parody videos and TikToks where they cry falsely while listening to the song.
"What is wrong with you?" The label on a user's TikTok refers to millennials.
Others have since turned to commenting on clips that contain the "Cringey" song.
"You must apologize [for this song]," wrote one user.
"I'm sorry, but do you think you invented WiFi?" asked another.
Who created the TikTok song "Side Part and Skinny Jeans"?
As Insider reported, @mammybanter claims to have created the song as a parody, not a serious attempt to "call out" Gen Zers. In a video recently posted on her site, the user explains that the song "is supposed to make fun of this war for the whole generation".
Regardless, the song's meaning has turned way beyond its original intent. Other users - especially users over a thousand years old - who shared videos with the song have since deleted their posts as well. It's unclear whether these users were kidding or not.
Why does Gen Z hate side parts and other millennial staples?
The feud between Gen Z and Millennial has lasted for decades. It's unclear what really started the trend, but at some point in the summer of 2020 it was trendy to mock millennials on the app.
Gen Zers began sharing her favorite stereotypes of her older, Harry Potter-loving colleagues - including her alleged obsession with BuzzFeed quizzes and the word "growing up". A few months later, a new trend claimed to be how different generations look at their phones. Cameras.
Fast forward to 2021, and Gen Zers has been focusing on style. Middle parts and loose fitting mom jeans are in, side parts and skinny jeans are outside.
However, it is really nothing new. Younger generations almost always dictate the fashion trends of their time. And fair or not, they often mock older age groups (remember, "OK, boomers?").
