About

Because Of Woke is an ironic catchphrase that was popularized on Twitter / X in the early 2020s. After a resurgence of interest in the term "woke," jokes about wokeness causing various aspects of cultural decline began making the rounds online. This joking sentiment is sometimes expressed using the grammatically incorrect addendum, "because of woke."

Origin

On August 27th, 2022, X[1] user @_pem_pem posted the earliest known post using the phrase "because of woke," writing, "u couldn’t make breaking bad these days. because of woke. the meth would have to be gay." The post gathered over 2,000 likes in two years (seen below).
