It Is With Heavy Hearts That We Announce The Death Of Our Most Beloved Adjective 'Lit'
Like Elsa, we must let it go.

Blavity fam, it is with heavy hearts that we must inform you that "lit" has gone to glory.
"Lit" went into critical condition when our mamas, aunties and uncles started using it after you reluctantly told them what it meant.
Its condition began to worsen when your co-workers, likely named Emily or Connor, tried adapting it in a futile attempt to bond with you while they bragged about seeing Black Panther.
The term was transferred to intensive care when corporations figured out they could use it to sell their crap.

But it is now officially gone after Donald Trump Jr. used it to describe yet another frightening day under his father's regime. It was accompanied by the term "OMG."
OMG! Just when you thought this week couldn't get more lit... I give you Anthony Kennedy's retirement from #SCOTUS— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) June 27, 2018
"OMG! Just when you thought this week couldn't get more lit... I give you Anthony Kennedy's retirement from
#SCOTUS," he cruelly tweeted.
Brother DonWill on Twitter marked the exact time of death.

"The word lit was pronounced dead at 1:23 PM on June 27, 2018. the black community would simply like privacy during this time of mourning," he announced.
Lit is preceded in death by "on fleek," "bling bling" and "bae."
Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days. A cookout will follow services. No, Connor or Emily cannot attend. We don't care if they can use "intersectionality" in a sentence.
