Mensagem:  Rather than there being a regional limit on the use of the expression, maybe it's just that younger people aren't aware of it.

Stupidity & ignorance may also be significant factors in the circumstance you describe.

However, you'll have to await definitive advice from one of the 'list-experts-on-identifying offensive-examples-of non-US-English-usage' (as usually deployed from the arsenal of the despicable UK-English speakers, the dreaded British, along with their convoy of croneys, of course).
