The Renegade Dance created to rapper K Camp’s song “Lottery” has taken over TikTok and now the news, as thousands of teenagers and young adults post videos of themselves doing the choreography. As the hype of the dance has spread to other social media platforms, the dance has also left the Generation Z community of TikTok and entered the millennial community of Twitter.
The result of this transition has left many millennials feeling a gap between generations as they joke about how difficult the Renegade Dance is compared to the dance trends of the 2000s.
