Cucked is a verb formed from the term “cuck”, a shortened version for cuckold, a man cheated on by his unfaithful wife.
Cucked is almost synonymous to tricked or trolled in its modern usage on the Internet and online video games.
The term cuckold has been present in the English dictionary since the French had occupied Britain in the 11th century.
The cuck slang’s modern upheaval began on the site 4chan in the early 2010’s, with a racist and misogynistic tone added to the phrase that we mostly encounter in political discussions on message boards like 4chan and Reddit.
The first Urban Dictionary entry on cucked was added in 2004.
Since that time, several others, more accurate definitions have been written on the matter.
Spread and Usage
The big numbers of kids going on Reddit as well as 4chan forums resulted in the term being adopted into the gaming scene, where it is a kind of synonym for trolled or baited.
Still, the term is most present in the dictionaries of right wing internet dwellers who spend most of their lives ranting about their views on message boards.
