    gypped is a racial slur

  • Frugal Mama

    I had no idea of the origins of the word gypped. I’m sorry if it has offended anyone.

      Frugal Mama,
      Don’t apologize.  It’s not a racial slur by any means.  Webster’s Dictionary says it means “a fraud; swindle”.  A person who does this is a “gypster”, not a gypsie.

      Some people just like to make trouble.

        It is indeed a racial slur. I’m sorry you have confused the definition of the word with it’s origins. Please do some more detailed research than just checking a dictionary.
