After being posted to Twitter on March 2, it quickly went viral and amassed more than 14 million views but was blocked earlier today.

Twitter said the video had been “disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”

However, YouTuber Senzawa, the creator of the “OK Doki Boomer” song, tweeted that they did not file the copyright claim.

senzawa uploaded the song to YouTube in December 2019.

The lyrics to the song are based on the “OK boomer” phrase which is used to make fun of baby boomers and those who are seen as being out of touch.
