In a recent interview about her organization’s media presence, a senior executive of AARP—the American Association of Retired Persons—took a jab at the viral “OK, boomer” meme by making fun of the relative destitution of younger Americans.
The executive, Myrna Blyth, made the comment during an interview with Axios. Blyth serves as the senior vice president and editorial director of AARP Media. AARP is a non-profit organization, 38 million members strong, whose mission is to “empower people to choose how they live as they age,” according to its website. To qualify for membership, applicants must have already passed their 50th birthdays.
“OK, millennials,” Blyth reportedly said in the interview. “But we’re the people that actually have the money.”
