If you were reading through a dictionary (which is probably never, tbh…), it's safe to say that you'd never think you'd come across 'throwing shade'.
But alas, more millennial-loved words have been added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, and people are pretty happy about it.
Merriam-Webster tweeted about the news last night, and Twitter was delighted:

I'm just really so happy the Merriam-Webster dictionary added "throw shade." What I do now has been legitimized.
