Noun

fren (plural frens or frenz)

  1. Pronunciation spelling of friend.
  2. (alt-right, Internet slang) A fellow, a comrade.
  3. (Internet slang) A white nationalist; fascist; far-right supporter.
Usage notes
  • After first gaining popularity online as part of DoggoLingo-style slang, fren came to be used on sites such as 4chan and the subreddit /r/frenworld as a dogwhistle among far-right white nationalists and fascists to refer to each other. This use is associated with the Apu Apustaja variation of the meme Pepe the Frog. It has been interpreted in this context as standing for “far-right ethno-nationalist” (a backronym).
