Re: Stupid question - Im so NOT hip

You are not alone! I had the "Bye Felicia" GIFs and memes popping all over my FB group feeds and had to google it.

Found this:

http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/bye-felicia

On April 26th, 1995, the comedy film Friday was released, starring the characters Craig Jones (played by Ice Cube) and Smokey (played by Chris Tucker) as a pair of unemployed stoners who must find a way to pay a drug dealer $200 within 24 hours. In the film, a character named Felicia attempts to borrow a car and a marijuana cigarette from Smokey and Jones, causing Jones to say “Bye Felicia.” On March 11th, 2007, YouTuber HyFlyer988 uploaded a clip of the scene, gathering over 870,000 views and 290 comments in the first eight years.

FWIW, I dont get the hype and just dont find the reference funny at all. Meh. Chat Icon

Stupid question - Im so NOT hip

It was explained to me like this, someone (an annoying person nobody really likes) is leaving but you couldn't care less, so their real name doesn't mean anything and you call them some random name like Felicia.

Re: Stupid question - Im so NOT hip

from urban dictionary:

bye felicia

When someone says that they're leaving and you could really give two shits less that they are. Their name then becomes "felicia", a random btch that nobody is sad to see go. They're real name becomes irrelevant because nobody cares what it really is. Instead, they now are "felicia".

"hey guys i'm gonna go"
"bye felicia"
"who is felicia?"
"exactly btch. buh bye."

edited b/c some words were blocked out.

I have ONLY heard this reference "Bye Felicia" in the past 3/6 months. I have NOT heard it for the past 8 years.....

I guess it just recently took off again???

Thanks for the info.

It resurfaced because the line was used in "Straight Outta Compton", the movie about Ice Cube and NWA.

I dont think so, it has been popular for a few years, I think the youtube video made it resurface, NWA movie is too recent

Re: Stupid question - Im so NOT hip

My officemate is Felicia and she actually said it on her cell the other day to her friend joking around. I was cracking up. The only reason I even knew about it was my bff told me it was a thing. Otherwise i'd have no clue.
