The Brief: Boom means "take that."
“Boom” can be added to the end of an insulting phrase for emphasis. The word itself is an onomatopoeia, intended to resemble the sound of a final blow. People also use boom to definitively present a point. The word communicates decisiveness and a certain “case closed” or victorious attitude. Mic drop is a synonym.

A common phrase combines slang terms boom and roasted. To roast someone is to drag them or throw shade. The two words work together to highlight a particularly savage insult.
