Alexis Ohanian gets his word into the Urban Dictionary

Ohanian is one of the most active social media entities. Scrolling through his handle, one can see that he often uses new and unheard words in his social media posts.

Yesterday, the 12th of August, one such word made it to the Urban Dictionary. ‘Hustle p**n’. Thrilled by the achievement, Ohanian wasted no time in sharing the news with his fans and followers. However, putting up a Tweet, he made sure to address his mother, who died in 2008, with the happy note.

He wrote, “I was just informed that my neologism, “hustle porn” is in the Urban Dictionary. Ma, I made it.” 

According to the Urban Dictionary, the recently added term means the fetishization of extremely long working hours. “It is this idea that unless you are suffering, unless you are grinding, unless you are working every hour of every day and posting about it on Instagram, you are not working hard enough,” he told the audience. “Do not let hustle p**n win here,” the dictionary added as a usage example.
