Well, as German, I do not know if I have a magnificent right of say. Personally, I do not use these words and do not know anyone from my circle of friends who does that.

But I've already heard - especially about social media - some of them get involved when Germans or so use these words because it is for them, as if they were abusing their language. One uses the words without even the exact meaning to know, simply because you want to be 'cool' as if there were some trend.


It is no different than when German Jewish, Italian, French or English words use. And they do daily, including you and us all.
