The rise of Tik Tok is undeniable– more and more teens are becoming glued to their For You pages. With a new social media platform, comes a new way of communication - Tik Tok’s comment section. While all social media platforms tend to have a comment section, Tik Tok’s comment sections has created a new trend: fairy comments. Fairy comments use cute and sweet emojis such as the star emoji or the crown emoji alongside a mean comment with a twist. These emojis make the beginning of the comment seem like a nice one, but the comment then ends off with a mean twist, making the comment seemingly funnier. Examples of the comments include “embrace your insecurities 🧚♂️ 💕 just maybe not this one✨ 🧚♂️ 💕” or “you really spoke your mind 🦋🥰💞never do it again ✨🧚♂️💫”.
While a majority of Tik Tok users think of these as harmless, humorous comments, some people think these comments are very much passive aggressive. The directed viewer of these comments may feel that these supposedly humorous comments are deep insults to themselves.
