What's The Origin Of The 'Calm Luh Fit' Meme?

Although it's unclear who, in all of human history, used the phrase "calm luh fit" first in real life, usage of the phrase started to surface on social media as early as last year. Usage of the phrase became increasingly commonplace going into 2023, mostly due to viral videos posted by a since-deleted TikToker named @W3ySosk11.

Also, "calm luh fit" became well-known because of a slideshow trend that manifested in August of this year, in which people mostly made fun of Twitch streamer Duke Dennis' old "fit pics" on Facebook.

The final phenomenon to fully popularize the phrase "calm luh fit" was a TikTok trend in which users wanted others to "rate" their "calm luh fit." Then, after showing their outfit on their body, they'd show all of their clothes on the ground. The joke was that they were usually in a public setting, inferring that they'd taken off all of their clothes in front of strangers.
