A poster on an Internet forum, (particularly 4chan) who expresses opinions which are either strongly nihilistic, ("life has no meaning," or Tyler Durden's special snowflake speech from the film Fight Club being probably the two main examples) or contain references to Hitler, Nazism, fascism, or other taboo topics which are deliberately intended to shock or offend readers.

The term "edgelord," is a noun, which came from the previous adjective, "edgy," which described the above behaviour.
Nietzsche was an edgelord before it was cool.

Someone, especially posting on the internet, who uses shocking and nihilistic speech and opinions that they themselves may or may not actually believe to gain attention and come across as a more dangerous and unique person. Most Edgelords are teenagers trying to seem overly cool and/or over-casually apathetic.

Usually a borderline physically disabled scrawny teenager or fat basement dwelling young "adult" with little to no social skills outside of the realm of the internet. Expresses strong opinions which they may not actually hold in order to cause offense or gain internet cred because their true lives are void of any real accomplishments. Video games and YouTube are their primary hobbies, as well as frequenting various internet forums while life outside passes them by.
Having sexual relations with an underage girl is not a big deal because Western women grow up to be sluts and should be dominated at a young age, said the edgelord while a tear rolled down his red plump cheek as the reality of his eternal virginity crept to the forefront of his mind.

Anyone who would act offended by the behavior of "social justice warriors," while simultaneously refusing to shut up about what they think is wrong with this country.
Edgelord: You're all just jealous that your candidate didn't win. #Trump2016 #HesYourPresident

an edgelord is someone who likes to share their whole life on social media and make it very dramatic so people will feel bad for them. they like to pretend to be depressed on their snapchat stories - example “DONT HMU 😔💔” stuff like that. they also like to listen to emo rap like lil peep and ghostmane.
my snapchat is full of edgelords
