A woman's anti-millennial rant has been watched over 40 million times

(FOX NEWS) - A Texas TV journalist's rant against her fellow millennials has been watched more than 40 million times in the past few days.

Alexis Bloomer filmed the two-minute clip in her parked car, writing on Facebook:

Dear Elders,

I'm sorry.

Sincerely,
A Millennial

In the video, which has been shared more than a million times, Bloomer excoriates millennials for lacking manners and respect for their elders.

"We listen to really obscene music that degrades women and pretty much glorifies drugs and crime," she said, faulting young people for idolizing people like Kim Kardashian while shaming people like Tim Tebow.

"We’re just existing. We’re not really contributing anything to society," she said, arguing that Generation Y is more concerned with amassing Facebook friends and followers, rather than building actual relationships.

"We don’t respect our elders, we don't even respect our country. We're stepping on our flag instead of stepping up to volunteer. ... Everything that used to be frowned upon is now celebrated. Nothing has value in our generation because we take advantage of everything," she said.

Bloomer later commented that she knows not all millennials are bad.

She explained that she was moved to post the video after seeing a young man step in front of a limping elderly man and fail to hold the door open for him.
