What would you do to become TikTok famous? How about reaching millions of people on another platform like Instagram or Elon Musk’s Twitter?
Would you speak into the camera and reveal your deepest, darkest desires? Would you talk about what you ate for lunch and the last time you had to go use the toilet? Or, like this woman, would you film yourself licking a toilet seat on an airplane for the sake of going TikTok famous because that’s what the modern social media experience demands of its content creators?
The video was uploaded to social media, where it went viral. However, there was some backlash, so the content creator removed it from the site – but a copy of the video was uploaded to YouTube, where it continues to entertain people across the globe.
The video opens with a cute young woman sitting on the airplane bathroom floor. On-screen text reads, “Lickin’ the airplane toilet because I’m gross like that.”
The young woman then drags her exposed tongue across the length of the toilet seat from the front to the back. Instead of finishing with that lick, she went back in for some more. She licks the bottom of the toilet seat across its length.
When the content creator was done licking the place where people put their bums to use the bathroom, she gave the camera a sultry look and clearly wanted to get people excited by her weird video.
The viral video was uploaded to YouTube by the Aviation, Travel #Hub channel, which clearly jumped at the chance to feature the bizarre video since it happened while the young content creator was flying in an airplane across the world.
While we don’t know much about the young woman who licked the toilet seat, we do know that she was a young adult with a hankering to get famous on the TikTok app.
TikTok is a social media app created by the Chinese. Many people worry that TikTok has been infiltrated by the Chinese government and is being used to take a look into the daily viewing habits of millions of Americans.
While this statement is not yet proven, it stands to reason that the Chinese are harvesting data on American consumer trends and are learning a lot about the ways of the American consumer from the way they use the TikTok app to engage with content creators across the world.
The young woman who licked the toilet seat in an airplane may have thought that this act would get her fame and fortune, but all she got out of it was worldwide criticism. In a world where people are struggling to make ends meet, how foolish is it to film yourself licking a toilet seat on an airplane in the hope of becoming TikTok famous?
The woman’s actions are being criticized because it sets a bad example for young people who may think that this is an acceptable way to gain social media fame.
