U.S. chief justice cites OK boomer in age discrimination case

WASHINGTON, USA – Chief Justice John Roberts cracked up the normally somber US Supreme Court on Wednesday, January 15 by dropping an OK boomer reference while hearing a case involving age discrimination in the workplace. During oral arguments, the 64-year-old Roberts asked a lawyer whether using the viral catchphrase OK boomer during a job interview would be actionable. So calling somebody a boomer and considering them for a position would be actionable? he asked as the courtroom erupted in laughter.

Justice Stephen Breyer also made an age joke during the court session while talking about someone being considered for promotion. I certainly don t want people who are over the age of 82, Breyer said. Breyer is 81 years old. – Rappler.com
