Ryan’s Word Of The Day: Flak (noun)
Meaning: Criticism, blame
Example (1): “I think governments should receive a lot of flak for how they failed to deal with the pandemic. Too many countries were underprepared and could have avoided a lot of this mess.”
Example (2): “Like, what the hell is wrong with some people? I’ve been getting so much flak for kissing another guy when I my boyfriend was on holiday. Umm, hello! I’ve said a billion times we are in an open relationship so I can do whatever I friggin’ want, so back off!”
