Assalmu Alaikum,
I want to ask about something I said that has been worrying me.
I called someone a “vape god” as a joke since they were vaping in front of me, and I thought that would be haram, or even worse, shirk. I know the clear distinction of things like “gods”/”goddesses” and God himself. I will never compare them because I know which one is real and which are made up. So, is it shirk? I am really scared that it might be, and it probably is. I want to know if I can repent as well. 
Thank you and Jazak Allahu Khayran
