What does Vibe check mean?

A Vibe check is when you check on the subjective emotional state of another person or group of people.

You can either straight out say Vibe check and they will respond by describing their current feelings, or “vibe”, or for example a musician will Vibe check its audience.

A good performer can Vibe check the audience by playing a daring tune and see if they are positively or negatively reacting to it, and thereby make a decision for how they will continue the show.

The Vibe check somehow turned into a meme material where one character will yell Vibe check! and then show violence to the other person, to check how they react to the violence.
