Have you heard about filler words?

If you haven’t, you’re about to get a big lesson by a TikTokker named Ashlynn, who put her follow Gen Z’ers on blast for the way they speak.

The caption to her video reads, “What did our parents feed us? I cannot speak without depending on the word ‘like.'”

Ashlynn said, “I have never met anyone over the age of 50 that uses filler words. What happened to us?”

She then uttered the infamous word, “Like”, and pointed to her mouth to prove that she’s also guilty of doing it.

She said, “I cannot speak without saying like…um…why are my ideas like…See? I can’t. I can’t. I can’t. My grandparents are seriously like…”

Ashlynn had made her point clearly and she added, “I have to exit” before the clip ended.

We, like, hear you, Ashlynn.
