>PLEASE DO NOT buy the BTS meal if you don't stan them"
fine. guess i will buy nuggets with those new sauces
"No, this isn't how you play the game"
-haha funny smash guy
What is "stan" supposed to mean in this context?
Stems from the eminem song "stan" basically just a crazy ass fan and "stanning" isn't supposed to be a good thing but dumbass diehard fans of just about anything took the term and tried to make it their own.
That song is 21 years old.
They're cultural appropriating from my generation by using the term Stan.
Jesus Christ man I didn't come here to be hurt like this, I don't need to be reminded I'm ancient.
I gradated High School in 2000. Just thinking about that and whatever year it is makes it painfully obvious how old I am.
I graduated in 2001. I've taken to telling everyone I'm 60. They then tell me how awesome and young I look, and I don't feel old anymore.
EDIT: Thank you internet randos for the awards.
Me: “wow, is he really sixty?”
*doing the math while forgetting that I graduated only five years later. *
Uhm, sir. No, you're wrong. 2000 was like... 5 years ago.
My thoughts exactly!
Probably don’t even know the origin or cultural significance to our people. SMH.
So...cultural appropriation by her own definition!
Also, when was the last time anyone actually listened to the song Stan? Being a Stan shouldn't be a good thing.
Yeah man. Who wants to be like the guy who forgets to send his tapes off before nose diving in to the drink?
This is what gets me. When did this start, exactly? Zoomers calling themselves Stans.
Stan drove his wife and himself murder suicide style into a lake or whatever it was. Let's not consider that extremely troubled dude an ideal in any way.
well fan used to be fanatic. words change and have different subtexts in different contexts
So that's where "stan" came from? I always assumed it was short for something (like "stand", as in you stand for your favorite character etc.). TIL.
Ong. Good ass song tho
My tea's gone cold I'm wondering why I, got out of bed at all
I bought a six piece and asked for the sauces…
They 👏 gave 👏 me 👏 the 👏 sauces 👏 dint 👏 even 👏 ask 👏 if 👏 I 👏 stan. 👏 so 👏 sad 😢 👏
Enjoying the meal and the cajun sauce and sweet chilli sauce is cultural appropriation guys :'(
Cajun sauce is cultural appropriation, of people from Louisiana
I’m from Louisiana and I’m Cajun . Can confirm: we have no idea why we’re in this meal and we sure as hell don’t want to be lmao
I don't even know what a BTS meal is. Can someone explain?
McDonald’s has been doing these promotional meals where celebrities “design” their meal of choice and it becomes a special for a while
For BTS (the Korean boy band) it’s just a nugget and fries meal with special sauces
Every now and then kpop stuff pops up on my reddit feed and I have no idea what any of it means. But it seems to be popular enough it's probably just me being old
Remember the Backstreet Boys or One Direction?
Its them, just Korean this time.
I found myself telling some kids to get off my lawn the other day. I'd just had it fertilized, you see.
Same. Saw a kid ride his bike up my driveway and through my front yard. Without even thinking I jumped off the couch and charged through the front door to tell him off.
Only after I got back inside did I realize how naturally I slipped into my new role of neighborhood grouch.
You have become your father
Haha username definitely checks out
“Had it fertilized” is the key phrase.
You should see how fast cars drive through my neighborhood. It's quite tiring telling them all to slow down. I have been considering getting myself a chair to increase my productivity.
What up my peer!
Just simply not in their target demographic! Honestly, the only reason I know anything about kpop is because I work with twelve years olds, so I learn it whether I want to or not
10 piece nuggies, medium fries, medium coke, and 2 "original" sauces.
You're not missing out, I can assure you that.
>10 piece nuggies
Buy the 20 piece box you cowards.
20 what now?
In my country we can only choose between 6 piece and 9 piece nuggies
Ah in the UK, there's a 20 piece box.
I assumed that was world wide because the UK is always last in terms of new fast food stuff.
Lol imagine thinking the UK gets 40 nuggs.
We only just got taco bell, that's how far behind we are fast food wise. Fucking dark ages over here.
About 15 years ago I bought a 20-piece chicken nuggets on my way to my overnight shift. At like 4:00 a.m. I microwaved them and ate them all, and then at like 4:30 a.m. my guts started rumbling like a far off train, and then at like 4: 40 I barely made it out into the employee parking lot where I puked, a king-hell fountain of steaming, rancid vomit. 6 feet in diameter, this chunky, foaming rainbow of acidic, roiling barf, sizzling and shimmering in the moonlight. Little chunks of grease-meat like opals in a jeweled crown. It was, of course, noticed by the guy arriving for the next shift. He came in and I'm just lying on the floor, pale and weak.
And that's the last time I ever ate at McDonald's.
this is literal poetry btw
Last time I got nuggets I bought 40. I'm not obese.
I just take shites denser than lead
It’s kinda a rip off. I wanted to try the sauces the other day, but 10 nuggets isn’t much. The meal is 9.99 with a large fry. I got a 20 piece with a $1 large fry deal that they have everyday on the app, with the sauces, with the $1 any size soft drink, and it was cheaper than the meal, even though I got double the nuggets.
I remember at one point it was less than a dollar to go from 19 to 20 nugs.
Edit: meant 10 to 20 nugs. Thanks for not pointing out my fat fingers.
I think it’s just a collaboration between McDonald’s and BTS to get a meal that had something different than normal. Although I’m not too sure
Not try something different, but get the BTS fanboys to buy it
All the way through this thread and I still don't know what BTS is. Before I go google, gonna assume it's a Korean pop boy band.
Barbra T. Streisand
the only difference is the price.
Better than the Taco Bell IBS meal
Maybe don't eat at Taco Bell if you have IBS.
Behind the scenes
Seriously though, I gotta give a shout out to cajun food. Life wouldn't be worth living without it.
I can agree. Every year when it starts getting colder and the first gumbo of the year is cooked, that’s one of the best times of the year. And when Mardi Gras rolls around and we can eat king cake, man that shits so good
Dammit now I want some king cake.
From reviews the sauce is supposedly sweet. Since when is Cajun sweet?
Oh it’s sweet? That’s odd. Normally when you think of Cajun you would think of spicy more than sweet. I would associate sweet with Asian food more than anythjng
Cajun is cultural appropriation of people from new Brunswick. /s
"Canigetuh.....10 piece nugget meal with Cajun and Sweet Chili Sauce?"
"Nah, ur not Korean so no."
"Howboutuhhh...without the sauce?"
"You a BTS fan?"
Is eating mcdonalds american cultural appropriation in the first place 🤔 /s
Basketball was invented by a white guy and originally only played by whites. Anyone else playing it is cultural appropriation.
I don't get it, what's a "behind the scenes" meal?
Not sure if this is a legit question but BTS is a popular Korean boy band :)
Hey at least you were nice about it
I don't want people to be mean to me so no need to be mean to strangers
That’s a very good outlook. 👍
enjoying the cajun sauce is culturally appropriating being a dumbass
Boy... I don't understand a word you just said
You just don't stan
Wtf is Stan?
I think its a reference to being a fan or big fan of something/someone? And a reference to the eminem song of the same name where "stan" is super obsessed and writing letters to eminem.
You’re telling me this bitch is culturally appropriating Eminem now?
And some might say Eminem appropriated black culture, have we come full circle?
Some might say that...
Like the man himself. From Without Me:
Though I'm not the first king of controversy
I am the worst thing since Elvis Presley
To do black music so selfishly
And use it to get myself wealthy (Hey!)
Here’s a concept that works
Twenty million other white rappers emerge
But no matter how many fish in the sea
It comes from the Eminem song "Stan". It's just someone that's a big fan of someone/ something.
Also wtf is BTS?
Blueberry and Thyme Soda
"please don't support the artists that I cry so much that I support, in that case I won't feel special"
*Please don't eat a completely mundane meal that I consider special because it is plugging a band that I build my entire personality, identity amd relationships around, despite the fact that they will never know I exist.*
*Oh... and blah-blah-blah idk you're racist*
The real title is in the comments.
I think she is confusing cultural appropriation and advertising...
Fucking, I want to be unique and quirky!!!
Don’t speak English if you aren’t from England, you are culturally appropriating… /s
Do i get permission if they once ruled me country?
Asking for a friend (Sorry, my English is bad)
Shagooba lorpen :)
Mooses are Canadian, so that's like double appropriation
The plural of moose is "meese", according to 3rd grade me.
Ah, but that would be appropriating the culture of geese
English is fun:
Mouse / Mice
Goose / Geese
Moose / Moose
I'm told by my British friends that's what we already do.
If your country got independence then no! Make up your own language! Fuckin lazy asses mooching off our flawless language.
Only 34.6% of the words
Sure but your balances of privilege points will only be 99. Are you sure you want to use them? :(
Fein, deutsch es ist...
Is eh besser
French Canadian here... Do we have to start our own language now? :/
I thought the French Canadians did have their own unique form of French they spoke?

What a stupid time to be alive
The world was always stupid, it's just the internet exposed us to just how stupid it is by giving every moron under the sun a megaphone that allows them to be heard worldwide.
I think that when Andy Warhol said "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes" he had no clue how correct that statement would end up being
Nah, i think he knew.
I like to refer to it as the "weaponization of imbeciles".
More than that, it's also that the internet will constantly show you the stupidest people on the planet, so you end up overestimating how many stupid idiots there are (*Somehow*, as high as that bar already is)
Like people can go their whole lives without ever encountering this shit IRL, but if they spend their days on these kinda subs or SJW pwning compilations or whatever, perceptions get warped a *tad*.
Wise, wise words from r/CompostableSexToy
[The first I've ever heard of BTS was when Russia banned them for being gay.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYAuR5bkIlQ)
Ironic, because you're pretty stupid for not getting an obvious joke.
Yeah this is obvious satire...right?
Yeah confirmed by going to the source it's a joke.
Oh right yeah sure, humans can’t even let humans from other parts of the world live in their country peacefully, what do you think they’re gonna be like with Klingons?
Remember when they brought back the schezwan sauce and Rick and Morty fans essentially said the same thing...
Pepperidge Farms remembers.
Tegridy Farms remembers
Actually, Tegridy Farm has trouble remembering for some reason...
Yeah I’m just glad that people freaking out about sauces will not be just a R&M thing now.
That's when the reputation of Rick and Morty fans was eternally smeared. That went viral. Some say to this day many people are still ashamed to say they enjoy watching Rick and Morty because of that incident.
Isn’t just a 10 piece McNugget meal?
Yeah, but it comes with two special sauces. A Sweet Chili sauce and a Cajun sauce. Neither are my cup of tea, but that's really the only thing that sets it apart from a normal 10 piece meal.
Ah that famous Cajun dipping sauce of Korea 🤌
But thanks for clearing it up, I'm from the UK and had no idea what a BTS meal is.
Do you guys not have sweet chilli sauce as a regular dip though? Try it with scampi.
what i wanna know is how are either of those related to BTS? my dumb ass thought Cajun was one of the members of bts at first
They said that specific meal is what they like to eat and they picked those two specific sauces because they heard they're not available in a lot of countries so they wanted to kinda bring something new. Now, we're talking about McDonald's here so don't expect much quality lol
dude i went to mcdonalds yesterday or something and i didn't even order the bts meal, and guess what.
they ran out of normal bags.
I heard you can sell the special bag for a good amount of money
Only if it's pristine, never used though.
Where is my BTS SAUCE!!! I'M PICKLE JIMIN!!!
I really hope this is satire, or it was edited
It reads like satire.
This whole subreddit dumb as fuck, shit constantly wooshes right over their thick skulls
Real cringetopia in the comments
Had to scroll way too far to read this. Fucking idiots in here.
OP's that don't have any idea what the fuck they are posting don't help
Yuuuup, "Eating the sauces without understanding their significance is literally cultural appropriation"
If thats not a dead giveaway that she's trolling I dont know what is mate, this sub is suuuuper dumb.
I mean, it's a sub called "cringetopia", most of the people here are probably idiot teenagers.
Image is a good ass joke post tho
And there’s people here that are getting genuinely upset over it lol
Just wanted to comment cause ur avatar is the male version of mine
They post this shit here so they can hand-wave actual appropriation, because they want to hand-wave it, and pretending this is anything but satire gives them that excuse. This sub is just far-right assholes with terrible disguises.
Every damn time. There's no real cringe left since it got taken over by nerds that feel threatened by "the woke agenda," so I just stay subscribed to see what fake bullshit will enrage these morons next.
This sub constantly posts obvious satire it’s absurd
Sad sheltered idiots enjoying getting mad at women
Then the ad is working
This is so clearly satire I don't know how much more obvious it can be
At this point we might as well just call the sub r/missedtheobvioussatireorjustognignoreditforkarmabecausethisisathingredditwilllovetohate
When someone unironically whines about "cultural appropriation" while praising America as a melting pot, you can safely ignore their opinion about literally everything else.
It's best to just ignore people like this in general
When someone unironically whines about cultural appropriation its safe to ignore their opinion on everything else
This IS someone using it ironically. It's fucking satire. This entire sub is people taking satire seriously and calling it cringe. The real cringe is everyone in the comments thinking this person is doing anything but joking OR that the entire caption was created by someone who is joking.
Good god y'all are gullible.
Because they want to complain about "snowflakes" and seem smart. So they stupidily don't understand satire
Please don't wear a septum if you haven't worn the hooves of a bull. You don't understand what they have gone through.
i feel attacked
So did the bull. /s
She must have deleted her account or changed name
She changed her name. I think I’d be doxing if I told you it, but, based on the screenshot it would *appear* she posted in the last week, and if you were on my phone and searched the hashtag “culturalappropriation” it would pop up fairly early in the results.
But to save you time, it seems she’s trolling. She doesn’t post often, but she had a “if you wore these shirts in HS you were my friend” with a bunch of emo bands. But then other videos kinda make it seem like she’s not? Idk honestly, weird account.
Or it's fake.
Is this that McDonalds shit?
Bruh girls really be callin themselves “noona” and saying “oppa” to mcdonalds workers and asking for the bts meal and say that THIS is cultural appropriation
For real? Noona isn’t even the word girls should be using to talk to other girls so they didn’t even get that right.
Wait so is this a McDonald’s meal? Is it hard to get? I’ve heard nothing about this outside of people selling used bags and ups on eBay.
This is so obviously sarcasm lmao. What is wrong with people have y’all never seen sarcasm or satire before
BTS? Never heard of it.
I’m not even a huge fan of BTS but these comments are always so corny lol
Born to Shit
Forced to wipe
That's a lot of words for someone who's never had a thought in their life.
This is so obviously satire, the only cringe thing here are the redditors that don't understand that.
Not a BTS fan but I got the meal and that sweet chili sauce is amazing.
Ahh but you’re not allowing fans who’ve waiting months to have the BTS meal experience their chance..how could you? 😢😢 /s
Yes!! I didn't have high hopes but that sweet chili sauce is the first time an McD product has impressed me in over a decade.
The cultural appropriation runs deep on this. You better have your ancestry papers ready if you want to eat this meal.
this is satire and this is a copypasta
Straight up satire. How are you people this gullible??
Satire. You have to be a moron to think this is real
#t h e B T S m e a l
satire you fucking morons
Satire, it's the stans themselves that are cringe
Satire, classic reddit unable to comprehend the word
Satire. Stans don’t usually refer to themselves as “stans”
You have never been on Twitter, almost every bio has “_____________ stan”
