#SayWhatNews TIME Mocked For Explaining ‘Bae’

Share via emailShare on WhatsApp


In a July 23rd article, TIME magazine thought it was pressing to define the word “bae” to its readers through a piece called “”This is what ‘bae’ means,” The article says that the term took off in 2013 and has been rocketed to popularity by hip hop artists like Pharrell with songs like “Come Get It Bae”. The article read, “Though this word was used in the 1500s to refer to sheep sounds, today bae is used as a term of endearment, often referring to your boyfriend or girlfriend…Say, for instance, you post a picture of you on a yacht with Beyonce and you just so happen to be Jay-Z…You might give that photo a caption like, ‘Just another Tuesday with my bae.#surfbort”. Needless to say the internet wasted no time making fun of the piece. Some tweets said, “Just read that TIME article. They managed to use bae, cray & surfbort all in the same story…”, “#surfbort” – time magazine” and “@TIME wait until y’all find out what “surfbort” actually means.” TIME must not have heard of Urban Dictionary. Check out the article HERE. Thanks Pharrell.
