No no no! This is all wrong! I swear, gay white guys can latch on to anything and act like it doesn’t have an actual origin.
"Bye Felicia" isn’t something new and it damn sure isn’t something a gay white drag queen came up with. "Bye Felicia" is straight from Friday, the scene where Felicia — the neighborhood crackhead — stops by Craig’s house while he and Smokey are hanging out on the porch. She asks them if they’re smoking so she can get a hit. And then she asks Smokey to borrow his car real quick. The whole exchange ends with “Bye Felicia” and that has been a saying for black folks since the mid-1990s. Dudes were making full (really bad) songs on Youtube based off of “Bye Felicia.”
So can we please give credit where credit is due, and get this random white drag queen off of this meme like this just randomly burst forth from the gay consciousness last month? I like Vicky Vox and I think she’s funny. I also thought it was funny when she randomly used it in the song. And then here comes the gay white internet passing this around like we haven’t been saying it for almost 20 years already. This shit is old, and as usual, black people started it.
