What Does DEEBO Mean?

DEEBO means "To Steal" and "Owned" (as in "Totally Beaten or Outdone.") It is based on a character played by Tommy 'Tiny' Lister Jr.

DEEBO is a slang term, inspired by the character of the same name in the 1995 movie "Friday" and the 2000 sequel "Next Friday." In the movies, DEEBO (played by Tommy "Tiny" Lister Jr.,) bullies the principal character (played by rapper Ice Cube).

The actions of DEEBO led to his name being adopted to refer to stealing, or to totally "owning" someone. For example:
  • Rudi: What's the matter, boss?
  • Don: Those dirty Dems DEEBO'd my election!
  • (Here, DEEBO means "Stole.")
  • Ozel: You are going to totally DEEBO that Jedi dude, Supreme Commander, sir. He doesn't stand a chance.
  • Darth Vader: Of course! Those light side lightweights do not understand my power.
  • (Here DEEBO means "Totally Beat.")
DEEBO is often typed as DEBO.

"Tiny" Lister died on 10 December 2020, at the age of 62. The popular actor was previously a professional wrestler. He appeared in a variety of films, TV series and music videos. Here's a tribute to the unforgettable DEEBO:
