ONE viral TikTok shows a woman recording a concert on TV to pretend she is there. TikToker, Sarah Lupica (@sarah.lupica), shared the video on Friday; By Tuesday, it had amassed more than 11.5 million views.
The clip shows Lupica, 19, filming the concert on TV with her phone. “He: Where are you?” she writes. “I bc [because] I’m mad at him.”
The comments erupted in a heated debate about whether Lupica pretended to be at a concert – or whether her boyfriend believed it in the first place.
One commenter wrote: “I swear that women are the most manipulative and will go to the ends of the earth.” “I love our toxic trait lol.”
This comment received more than 95,000 likes and sparked heated discussion.
“Do you expect people to call you a horrible person?” One user replied.
“Why is it OK to be manipulated and malicious even from afar?” ask another. Throughout the thread, commenters on both sides of the discussion repeatedly accused others of being “triggered”.
Still others in the comments said they might find themselves using this trick in the future.
One TikTok user wrote: “I 100% would do this.
“SOME OF MY BEHAVIORS,” another shared.
Other commenters criticized TikTok from a practical perspective and offered suggestions on how to improve the video to raise envy.
One user said: “Make the sound more realistic by shouting in the background.
“With location services turned off, the club did not receive a good reception. The TikToker added before adding, “I’ll do this later.”
Comments like these have sparked further debate.
When one user asked why someone would try to do this just to upset their boyfriend, another replied: “Men have consistently hurt women throughout history. May God forbid them to taste their own medicine. “
“If the guys act like a pose [piece of shit] Then why can’t she? ” another commenter wrote.
In one next video, Lupica posted the footage she captured on television.
One TikToker said they thought they were tricked by previous drama scenes. “I now believe that some ppl will not actually go to concerts,” they wrote.
