The first Urban Dictionary entry was added in 2018.
Spread of the term
The phrase had started to spread only in 2017, when memes like DJ Khaled riding the Batpod were being uploaded to Twitter, as well as a massive wave of people posing as mascots.
The meme had rapidly spread onto Facebook and Reddit, mostly after the tweet about how LGBT stood for “Let’s get this bread”.
