Well, it’s official! In case you missed it, Merriam-Webster has added the word “sheeple” to the dictionary. What does it mean? According to M-W, “sheeple” are people who are docile, compliant, or easily influenced, “like sheep.” Used in a sentence here:
“Apple's debuted a battery case for the juice-sucking iPhone—an ungainly lumpy case the sheeple will happily shell out $99 for.”
Sounds a liiiiittle offensive, right? Maybe so…but is it true?
