Does anyone know the original meaning? Or is the slang meaning the original meaning?
You led me down a small rabbit hole, but it actually didn't take too long to find what I believe is the correct answer.
Looks like there were two common reasons for the spike.
1. Yeet for this period of time became a common Dutch name.
2. Certain dialects of English would spell the word "yet" with two e s . hence, yeet is common for a time period before it's more standardized.
@Gallium , thank you, I appreciate you
Let's yeet the word yeet!
