NPR ran a story on Monday that seems to have stirred up quite a controversy among baby boomers (those Americans who were born between 1946 and 1955.)
Countless boomers have taken to social media to decry the article, which features this seemingly innocuous headline:
Get Off The Couch Baby Boomers, Or You May Not Be Able To Later
It appears the angry commenters never actually read the article, however, which is simply a piece about how sitting for 13-14 hours a day may increase your risk of disease. Instead, they seem to have assumed that the article was about the laziness of their generation and were immediately triggered.
