The Brief: "Y'all Be Easy" Twitter memes typically poke fun at situations that are troubling for others, but not the OP. It's a means of saying "Take care" and "Good luck."
“Y’all be easy” is being used a punchline for memes on Black Twitter. The phrase “be easy” has been used among the Black community as a means of saying goodbye and take care.
As of recent, Black Twitter is using “Y’all be easy” after explaining a situation or issue that is affecting others, but not them. In this context, it’s a means of saying “That’s your problem and best of luck with it.”
Many of these jokes revolve around pandemic-based problems, like rent:
Somebody rent due today. Not me though cuz I live with my parents. Y’all be easy
