As an avid user of the TikTok app, you might have noticed comments featuring heart and fairy emojis recently. These comments are called mean fairy comments. However, just with these emojis doesn’t make it a mean fairy comment. The comments always have an unexpected end to it.
The comments usually start off with a positive vibe. But, there are two parts of mean fairy comment. And, the second part will change the whole meaning behind their comments.
For example, the comment may start with “You are the best”. And this makes the reader think that the comment will be a sweet note for their favorite TikTok user. However, the second part will change the meaning behind the first part of their comment. Likewise, the second part can say “at making bad videos” or “at looking ugly” or something else.
And this is how the mean fairy comments are usually posted. Fun fact, according to self-proclaimed Gen Z whisperer Tiffany Zhong, the very first mean fairy comment was posted on April 10th, 2010.
Literature is a very vast subject. And the content of which, can be used in over day to day conversations.
