Backdoor is an AAVE slang term used to describe the act of "snitching" on someone or cutting a "backdoor deal" with the police. The term is sometimes used in verb form (backdooring), with TikToks about being backdoored or learning to spot someone trying to backdoor you gaining traction in 2023 and 2024.


Use of the term "backdoor" in a manner similar to the word "snitch" or "rat" gained traction online in early 2020, with a February 1st, 2021 TikTok[1] post by @quanodag gathering over 400,000 plays and 100,000 likes in three years (seen below).
