The paper is focused on some linguistic exponents of social stigmatization of Bosniaks in the post-Yugoslavian cyberspace. It highlights the close relationship between the identity devaluation of Bosniaks and the negative stereotype of them. The Bosniaks' stereotype confirmed by data from cyber-discussions corresponds with the south Slavonic stereotype of Muslims, composed from both traditional ('Ottoman invaders') and contemporary ('Islamic terrorists') elements.
