    The proper appellation for "regular folks" in Texas would be Redneck. Hillbilly is really more for those who live in mountainous areas like Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia.

    I think politically correct term for hillbilly is Appalachian American

    Hillbillys find it not offensive but find the term redneck offensive. Rednecks dont find redneck offensive but find hillbilly offensive, people who consider themselves neither find both offensive. It all depends on where they're from. I wouldn't worry about it you can't please everyone!

    Hillbilly can be offensive if used that way. Also depends if the hillbilly finds offense in it. I mean it’s just a fucking word, but then again people are literally offended at everything these days.

    Hillbilly can have a negative impact, it all depends in how the term is used. I guess it would be the equivalent of calling someone from Ireland a potato farmer. If you do it playfully, it is like jokingly calling someone a twat, or insultingly calling someone a twat if said with anger behind it.

  • Sir Chunkmuffin McFloofybottom

    Hillbilly is more Appalachian mountains people than Texas. I would say Texans are Rednecks.

    Hillbilly can be taken variously. If you are one it is affirmation, a greeting even a hail to someone just within earshot. If you are not a 'billy tone is very important and of course context.

    Anyone who's a hillbilly won't be offended at the least they take pride in being a true hillbilly and besides they are some of the nicest or meanest people on earth depending on the situation by which u meet them. I have true ozark hillbilly in my family so yeah, Texas is redneck though not hillbilly. Just a fun fact.

    I am a hillbilly. doesn`t bother me at all. I imagine people offended by the term are offended FOR us, cause they ain`t hillbillies. Those SJW lunatics.They don`t matter. Mountain folk are generally laid back. at least the ones I know.

    Raised in Texas. Hillbilly isn’t a term I heard frequently. I heard it more as a derogatory reference to people from Appalachia. Still, it’s not a term that I’d throw around in Texas if I wanted to make any friends. It does have a derogatory connotation. Plus it’s stereotyping a person or group.

    A general rule-of-thumb to these timed eating-contests is that if you couldn't fit your meal into the volume of a two-liter bottle, it'll be physically impossible to finish the contest in one sitting (unless you have a super-human level of gastronomic capacity).

    Just looked up HillBilly's locations. It's a shame that the franchise is only in Ireland. Wish they would come to the states. Fun to watch and the chicken looked pretty good. The gravy looked a little lumpy.

    A hillbilly is from the Appalachian mountains of the eastern part of America. Red neck is what they called the loggers of Appalachia. A true hillbilly will claim themselves as such.

    Hillbilly and Redneck are just slang. I’ve been called way worse. I’m in a town in North Texas that only has 1 stop light. Our major gas station has a kitchen in it; its pretty good! Bev’s has gas and gizzards! Haha

    "Hillbilly" is one of those words that is more often used as a derogatory connotation, but is taken as a compliment...similar to "redneck". When some dude with a man bun and scarf sitting outside a coffee shop staring at his phone trying to portray himself as interesting on Instagram calls us a hillbilly, we look up, smile, say "Bless your heart Princess", open another beer, reload, and keep on shooting at sh!t. We'd much rather be in a room sharing and making memories with our real life friends than have followers/subscribers. Oh, and great food! FYI...if you eat fries (chips) with a fork, you probably won't get any of it.

  • James Frederick

    "Hillbilly" is typically a pejorative term. Some people use it in a non-pejorative manner and do not consider it offensive. It often depends on the context in which it is used.

    Hillbillies originally described the Scott-Irish that came to the United States. They are called hill because they settled in the hills of places like Kentucky and bilies because they supported william de orange.

    Fun fact - the people that you might describe as being "Hillbilly" don't give a fuck about people being offensive. Growing up in the backwoods with wildlife tends to not make you into a snowflake.

    It depends on how Hillbilly is used. If its meant as a term of endearment its fine. If its a derogatory slur, its racist and offensive.

    Glad you asked, most southerners have a self deprecating humor about how we speak and being backwards or driving jacked up pickup trucks etc etc. If people are good natured about it all's well. The problem comes in when people from the coasts look down from lofty perches and actually believe we're somehow inferior to them. Don't stress too much about it. Your kind to be concerned please feel free to call me a redneck.
