TikTok trends move fast. The hashtags and popular "sounds" go in and out of popularity sometimes within a week.

While some trends are fun and catch at first, if they're dragged on for too long they can become annoying and even painful to see repeatedly.

Some of them are even harmful, like pranks that other people didn't consent to. It's not new to TikTok, but the easily marketable platform didn't help stop them.

We went to AskReddit to hear which trends make people the most angry.

Redditor JaneDoe1967 asked:

"What TikTok trend gave you anger issues?"

This list might make you angry, so reader beware.

"You’re going to do the stanky leg while you talk about your mom’s cancer? "

"Strange to me lol."- supragirl98

Not really adding to the joke.

"Makes me want to throw my phone every time."- No_Loquat_7443.

"Shake it off..."

"The 'shake it off gacha' trend because it's about body shame.- Few-Scallion4693.


"Devious lick' basically stealing sh*t and recording it."- CreepyPandaMan.

"My friend is a teacher and it was the 'licks' one where kids were stealing sh*t from school."

Every single one.

"Essentially all of them because they encourage bad behavior and people are top stupid to do anything else."

"Plus some of them are actually dangerous."- MeSwimBest1.

If you haven't heard of these before, don't look them up.

It will probably only incite rage upon seeing them.

Or you'll be left with a song stuck in your head.

Hopefully, the trends that are harmful to others end as quickly as they took off.

People Debate If They'd Want The Ability To Speak Every Language Or Play Every Musical Instrument

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?

If you’re anything like me, you spent your childhood dreaming about getting your Hogwarts letter, thinking about what you wanted to learn, and ignoring your real class schedule in favor of making an O.W.L. schedule.

Chances are, you never thought about the negative side of the wizarding school. Magic, however, is dangerous, especially when it can be used by youngsters.

The fact that the teenagers in the Harry Potter books didn’t abuse magic in any way is nothing short of a miracle.

We know how teenagers are. They’re adventurous, emotional, creative, and a little crazy. With access to magic, all of that would be amplified. There’s no way teenagers wouldn’t find ways to abuse magic at Hogwarts.
