What Does CCL Mean in a Text?

CCL means "Couldn't Care Less." The abbreviation CCL means someone doesn't care at all about a situation or outcome; it is so unimportant it's not worth talking about.

Confusingly, it is sometimes used defiantly, i.e., when someone does care but wants people to think they don't.
