The unflattering Bank of America nickname of “Banksters of America” has been cited in print since at least January 2009; “Bankster of America” has been cited in print since at least January 2010.
Bank of America has other unflattering nicknames, including “Bank of Amerika/Amerikkka” (cited in print since at least 1970), “Bunch of Assholes” (cited in print since at least 2000), “Skank of America,” “Bank of Assholes” (both cited in print since at least 2003), “Stank of America” (cited in print since at least 2005)and “Bank ofFailmerica”(cited in print since at least 2009). The South Africa-related nickname, “Bank of Apartheid,” has been used since at least 1978, but is dated today.
