Shh Bby Is Ok is a copypasta used on Reddit posts as both comment spam and as a way to soothe other users.
Shh Bby Is Ok originates from a story told in the subreddit /r/casualconversation. In a post from November 29th, 2015, the user franklymydeer told a long story about falling in love with a song in a Seat Toca car commercial and becoming desperate to track it down. The user explained the extreme lengths they went to in order to track down the song, incuding writing to the public relations department of the auto company in order to inquire. When the public relations department told franklymydeer that the song was a short commission for the commercial, the user was heartbroken; however, almost an entire year later, another reddit user emailed franklymydeer and said the song was called "Turn the Lights Down" by an artist called BSO. In the resulting conversation, the anonymous reddit user told franklymydeer "ssh bby is ok."
Franklymydeer's post made it to the front page of Reddit that day, gaining 5,641 points (97% upvoted) in two days. Several commenters on the original post either said that the "Shh bby is ok" quote was the favorite part of the story or predicting that the line was "going to take over reddit for a few days. Later on November 29th, 2015, user geneticswag asked why the phrase was being used so much on different posts in the subreddit /r/outoftheloop, and received over 250 upvotes and 25 comments. Also on November 29th, the subreddit /r/shhbbisok was created for fans of the phrase, and gained 171 readers in two days. The next day, the "mystery redditor" referred to by franklymydeer, whose username was revealed to be TheVikingHoward, did an AMA where he answered users questions about his side of the story; that post received 1,193 points (87% upvoted).
