3. What does Op stand for?

Outta pocket

OP is often used online and when texting to describe someone who is "outta pocket," which is another way to say a person is "acting out of line" or "disreputable." It is typically used to refer to people cheating on their partner or just acting or saying crazy stuff.

Outta pocket was originally used to describe women who were disrespecting their pimp handlers. But it spread to a more general reference to people "acting up" when used in the rap community in the 2000s and social media in the 2010s.

You will most often see it on social sites, like Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, when people talk about how someone is acting crazy in a way that is inconsiderate to themselves or others. However, people may also use it endearingly to describe people who do things that require courage and talent, even if they seem crazy.

Example

"Someone needs to straighten her out, she's been op the last couple of months."
