If you’re an avid TikTok user, you must have seen this slang word floating around.
But, what does Jordan mean on TikTok?
Meaning Behind the Word “Jordan” on TikTok
The word “Jordan” is being used on TikTok as a substitute for the N-slur.
It started when TikToker, Jordan Da Boo, told his followers that he would be starting the “biggest inside joke on social media.”
In a now-deleted video, he said via subtitles: “Today is the big day y’all have been waiting for, today is the day we make the biggest inside joke on social media. And the inside joke is… instead of using the n-word use the word Jordan.”
However, many TikTok users were not happy with this term and have taken to Twitter to report that the word had been commented on several black users’ TikTok accounts.
One user tweeted: “Ew white people on TikTok are replacing the n-word with ‘Jordan’ and commenting it on black people’s TikToks?”
Along with the video’s deletion, the comments were scrubbed too.
