What Does Gyatt Mean in a Text?

image for gyatt as an exclamation

Gyatt is an exclamation of admiration or appreciation. It is pronounced "geeyat" and is generally held to be an abbreviation of the word "goddamn." It is an alternative spelling of gyat, used to express even more excitement on the part of the sender.

Gyatt was typically used by young men when commenting on the physical attributes of a girl or woman. However, it is now much more widely used. For example:

  • Gyatt! Check out the shawty by the bar!
  • Gyatt! What a goal!
  • Gyatt, that pizza was tasty!
Gyatt is often typed in uppercase (GYATT) and sometimes typed as gyaat. Particularly excitable posters often use full uppercase, add more As and/or Ts, and use exclamation marks (e.g., GYAAAAT!!! and GYATTTTTTTTTT!!).

There is some debate as to who originally coined the term and where it was first used, but it is now widely used on all social media platforms, especially YouTube and TikTok. During the summer of 2022, Gyatt went viral on TikTok, with many videos attracting lots of comments.
