Someone or something that makes you embarrassed to be a part of the human race. Usually classified by seeing something and feeling extremely embarrassed, throwing your head back and closing your eyes to block your view of the cringy media, and biting your lip to keep in your scream of utter disgust. In some cases, a person viewing cringy media may also feel an almost unbearable feeling of wanting to kill themselves. You can usually tell when a person is viewing cringy media because their device (phone, tablet, anything that has access to the internet has access to this shitty media) is in their hands and they are closing their eyes and making a noise like "hnngh!" Either that, or they are severely constipated.
