About

Reddit Moment is a slang term mocking moments when Reddit has cringeworthy commentary or discussion. The phrase is a particularly popular way to mock times when a Redditor is demonstrating how he or she believes Reddit is the superior social networking platform in contrast with other sites.

Origin

The term began spreading on iFunny as a way of making fun of Redditors. One of the earliest known uses of the term there appeared on March 21st, 2019[7] (shown below).

On June 25th, 2019, Urban Dictionary user Khalid Norsenya posted a definition of the term,[2] writing:

Relating to the the titular site, a Reddit moment occurs when either one or multiple Redditors do something considered "cringe" unironically. This is meant to contrast the social media idealism many Redditors believe they have over other similar platforms, and how they generally have a tendency to critique those platforms over similar behavior. This serving much as an in-joke as to Reddit's often-suggested superiority complex.

The term began seeing more use in jokes towards the autumn of 2019, particularly on the subreddit /r/averageredditor, a subreddit making fun of these types of "Reddit Moments." For example, on September 3rd, 2019,[3] a thread posted by user yaboievannn calling an /r/dankmemes post a "Reddit Moment" gained over 1,300 points (shown below, left). Another post in the subreddit making fun of /r/dankmemes, this time posted by Worldsofpower[4] on September 29th, gained over 1,300 points (shown below, right).
