Where does GMFU come from?

Genius

The phrase got me fucked up has its origins in urban slang and has been used extensively in rap songs since at least 2007. The internet popularized the acronym GMFU on the model of other acronyms like GTFO, or get the fuck out, and STFU, or shut the fuck up. GMFU made its Urban Dictionary debut by 2009, so it likely emerged in the mid- to late-2000s.

Into the 2010s, many musicians had songs called GMFU, including Keke Palmer (2016), Adrian Marcel (2017), and DC the Don (2018). This helped them avoid using the explicit fuck in titles, though the lyrics don’t shy away from the full-on got me fucked up. No doubt the music got people using the acronym more, especially on social media.

Who uses GMFU?

In texting and on social media, GMFU can be the perfect, slangy reaction to something that just has you feeling off. That “off” feeling can be aggression, surprise, hilarity, confusion, sadness, or even anxiety. GMFU has many applications and can display varying degrees of fucked-up-ness, from minor inconveniences to major problems.

Another sense of GMFU is used when someone misreads or misunderstands someone (e.g., You GMFU I’m not like that … or I’m not going to put up with that GMFU).
