In case you thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse, Merriam-Webster just officially recognized “irregardless” as a word.😱— Jamie Lee Curtis (@jamieleecurtis) July 6, 2020
Scream Queen and Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis took to Twitter on Monday to share with her followers that Merriam-Webster added the word “irregardless” to its dictionary. “In case you thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse, Merriam-Webster just officially recognized “irregardless” as a word,” she wrote. Clearly the actress does not agree with the decision with many on social media sharing similar sentiments. Others however argued that “irregardless” is a word and that “complaining is tired at best and elitist at worst.”
[Merriam-Webster answers your Frequently Asked Questions About Irregardless]Is irregardless a word?
Yes. It may not be a word that you like, or a word that you would use in a term paper, but irregardless certainly is a word. It has been in use for well over 200 years, employed by a large number of people across a wide geographic range and with a consistent meaning. That is why we, and well-nigh every other dictionary of modern English, define this word.
Does irregardless mean the same thing as regardless?
Yes. We define irregardless as "regardless." Many people find irregardless to be a nonsensical word, as the ir- prefix usually functions to indicates negation; however, in this case it appears to function as an intensifier. Similar ir- words, while rare, do exist in English, including irremediless ("remediless"), irresistless ("resistless") and irrelentlessly ("relentlessly).

How does that happen?
Where will be all the throngs of mourning - the BLM protests - the Antifa riots - the urgent legislation - for this slain black person - and for the ongoing carnage in Chicago?
Doesn't fit the agenda.
Anti-progressivism. Anti-gay. Anti-woman. Anti-white / anti-BLACK. Anti-environment. Anti-imagination. Anti-peace and quiet. So petty-competitive that people are dying over shoes, words, fireworks. So many buy into the messaging, and do not see the divide-and conquer which is playing them - coming from capitalism, television, music, politicians, hate-mongers, billionaires, China - and even pollution - in addition to racism. The troublemakers are so driven to hate that they themselves have become functions of the same racism they mean to destroy.
