Instead of evacuating to shelters, many young people in the US risked their lives to stand in the middle of a storm filming TikTok.
In the United States, Super Typhoon Ian is wreaking havoc in many parts of Florida with winds of more than 250km/h. According to reports, the storm destroyed many public facilities and houses, flooded streets and left people in terror.
It is estimated that more than 20 people were killed.
However, a large part of TikTokers of the GenZ generation in the US, instead of evacuating to shelters like other residents, tried to stay in the stormy area to…. Record a clip to post TikTok. This action is supposed to create unique, one-of-a-kind video clips that will quickly become famous on social networks.
A female TikToker deliberately stood against the wind, clinging to the tree with her hands and twisting to imitate Michael Jackson’s performance of the song Earth Song.
The original purpose when Michael Jackson performed this dance was to raise people’s awareness of protecting the environment, he tried to cling to the tree trunk when the storm was so strong that it could tear the sky.
But it seems that under the re-enactment of the female TikToker, many people commented that it looked too ridiculous and they did not understand what this girl was trying to show.
It was one of countless criticisms when female TikToker Jordan Glenn posted a cosplay video of Michael Jackson with the headline “Celebrating 21st birthday with Hurricane Ian”.
The video has garnered nearly 4.5 million views and over 1 million interactions. Among tens of thousands of comments, many people criticized this female TikToker, but there were also many people who responded, praised and praised her for being brave.
Another TikToker with more than 1 million followers named LuvTheSanders is also one of the GenZs who responded to the trend of filming clips in the middle of a super storm.
Sai Sanders, the owner of the above TikTok account, defied heavy rain and wind to stand on the field, even lying down on the street to record a clip.
Of course, most people do not find this action funny at all, they bluntly criticize those who support this trend. Many people expressed concern, saying that these GenZ TikTokers are spreading harmful content and can make children learn:
“Parents struggled to prepare to evacuate to avoid storms, children stood outside the TikTok studio and tried to be a cheap, incomprehensible version of Michael Jackson.”
