Just let it be, it's only irrelevant if it's ignored :)

Why though? Fidget spinners should be irrelevant as hell by now.
I don't like this trend of people liking something way too much for 5 minutes and then and never touching it again because they got distracted by something in their peripheral vision. I feel like it's headed in an unhealthy direction. If not, then people are at least going to run out of ideas for new products.

What one thing in 1938 was popular for about 3-5 months before becoming entirely irrelevant?

i think it's a good idea to be aware of shortening attention spans but i'm not about to get angry at someone for enjoying something for a short amount of time.

Just some fidget toy that was probably made in favour of kids with adhd that became popular because of media and memes.

Eh, honestly, I'm not mad. I'm just curious, that's all.

I keep a fidget spinner in my suit jacket pocket, partially for the memes and also partially because I keep forgetting to take it out
It's usually a pretty good conversation starter, since most people only know them through the memes and haven't used one

Zoot suits
Doesn't seem as short lived. Also those are '40s not '38.
Either way, it would be pretty funny if a group of rioters had named themselves "fidget spinners."
