In today’s acronym let’s take a look at one of the most used acronyms and what people mean when they say I don’t FW or do you FW.
TikTok is full of different Gen Z slang and new terms you may not be familiar with, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting the joke or point of the skit.
What FW means on TikTok?
Somewhat predictable, the acronym means “Fuck With”. A phrase used to describe whether or not you condone and support a specific thing.
Commonly used in chat to express feelings about something you really like, you’d say “ Oh I FW that big time” or him or her or anything really.
Whether you fuck with this new terminology or not, it’ll forever be going viral due to its interchangeability and convenient casual use.
Examples of using fuck with in a sentence:
- I don’t FW Taylor she’s too snobby
- I FW this new Drake album
- Do you FW that famous Twitch streamer?
- Y’all FW with this?
A non-formal phrase that you can include in your TikTok content, or any other social platform to better communicate your idea to a generation that speaks in acronyms and letter
When researching the phrase, many different dated definitions came to exist which can sometimes be confusing.
Other definitions include, “Don’t Fuck with me” in a moment of extreme anger or disappointment that can come off as negative or offensive.
Fuck with in an email may also mean forwarded or forward, as in “FW this email to Alice”, and you better not confuse the two.
There you have it, if the person is not saying it in a raging manner, they probably mean the modern “Fuck with” in a good way as a projection of interest.

Every day you’ll hear a bunch of new GenZ slang, especially if you’re always scrolling TikTok, and it can be a lot for you to keep up with. But is certainly better than missing the joke!
While some of the new GEN Z Termanology is predictable, this is not one of them. Its origins go back to rap and hip-hop culture, but over the years it became a norm to describe whether or not you approve of something.
Not everything used on TikTok can be used to communicate “IRL” in real life, so be careful of what funny Gen Z terms you’re learning and adding to your vocabulary and online jargon.
