    It's suppose to be bad rap (as in bad reputation). Ex: OP gets a bad rap because of shit tier threads.

    Enough people have misused it as "bad rep" that it is now accepted for the same use.

    Bad wrap is stupid and plain wrong.

    Both can be used. I think bad rap was first on the scene though. Isn't it something to do with someone's rap sheet which stands for records of arrests and prosecution? I heard that once.

    The expression is bad rap.

    Like, false charges on a rap sheet.

    bad rep = it is known youre a shitster
    bad rap = is kind of like a bum deal, youre known for something but it most likely isnt true

    Both are expressions, but the mean different things. RAP is a "Record of Arrests and Prosecutions" a bad rap means a record containing false or trumped up charges. It's also called a "bum rap".

    A bad rep is just an abreviation of bad reputation.

    Bad rep = bad reputation
    Bad rap = bad rapport
