我被雷了!

Pronounced: wǒ bèi léi le
Means: “I’m thundered!”

This internet slang is now entering popular usage among young people. To be “thundered” means to be shocked, appalled, terrified, “floored,” etc. by something or someone. You can also make it an adjective (很雷人), but I don’t know how that’d be in English (something can be really “thundering” / “thunderous” / “thundery” / “thunderish”?) . Other examples:
我被雷到了!
我被他雷了!
[a]把[b]雷到了!
