The Brief: 'Crackhead energy' is an exaggerative phrase to describe someone who is acting erratically.


Crackhead energy stems from an individual who is acting out for attention especially one who engages in bizarre actions with the intention to make others laugh. This phrase is typically used in conversations between Gen Zers. The wild expression refers to a person who is under the influence of an intense drug that causes them to lash out. Gen Zers, specifically teenage girls, co-opted this phrase to make jokes about how their crazy friend is misbehaving or acting illogically.
