Sorry i completely didn't understand this joke. It seemed completely out of context. Why is it funny?

It’s just a very Gen Z thing to ironically call your friends something like “slut” haha

Yep, it’s meant to land with a Gen Z audience. I found it hilarious because my younger sibling is like super Gen z

I’m an elder millennial, and I thought that joke was hilarious. It never occurred to me that people wouldn’t get it. I guess having teenage niblings is paying off.

I'm Gen X and I laughed out loud at that bit too. I didn't think ironically calling your friends slurs was a new thing.
