What is spa water on TikTok?

TikTok’s viral spa water comes from user Gracie Norton.

She posted a video on the platform in which she put together a drink she dubbed “spa water” and claimed the summertime recipe was her own.

Little did she know that her creation is actually a traditional Latin soft drink known as agua fresca — which means “cool water” in Spanish.

Agua Fresca is a light non-alcoholic fruity drink popular throughout Mexico.

The drink is made from fruit, water and sugar, with ice added to the mix to make it refreshingly cool.

What is the TikTok spa water controversy?

Norton’s video received immense backlash on TikTok after it was revealed that her drink “spa water” was actually a popular Mexican drink.

The influencer claimed the drink was her personal recipe, but it was actually a replica.

As a result, the internet flooded Norton’s video with comments referring to her apparent ignorance and misappropriation in naming the drink.

Her TikTok account has since been suspended and she apologized to those she had “offended”.

“Recently I did a spa water series that I mistitled. The real name for this drink is Agua Fresca, and the origin belongs to the Latin community,” she wrote in a statement.

“Many of you have told me that you would be most comfortable with the videos being removed entirely, so that’s what I did.

“A lot of my content is about celebrating the many ways we can show love to our bodies by trying new recipes, and I recognize that it’s my responsibility to continue to explore the origins of those recipes to inform.

“I sincerely apologize to the Latin American community and those of you whom I have offended.”

Norton has not yet responded to The Sun’s request for comment.
