2. What does yt mean on TikTok?

Whitey

On TikTok, users often use the abbreviation yt to refer to white people. TikTokers may use yt in place of "whitey" or just "white." The abbreviation can be used pejoratively, for brevity, or both.

While yt's origin is unknown, the reasons it became popular are not. When sounded out, y-t sounds almost exactly like "whitey." The abbreviation also allows users to save space in their character-limited TikTok posts and skirt some of TikTok's race-related regulations.

Originally, yt meant only "whitey," but it has since morphed to also stand for "white." For example, you might see a TikToker refer to "yt people" in a post. (And if you do, the TikToker is likely not referring to YouTube people.)

Example

"What's yt on about today?"
