TikTok has a new trending sound, and it's hilarious. Tiktok users are repeating "tomato tomato tomato" in their videos to express their disapproval of poor decisions made by others.

Using trending music can help creators get more views by landing them on the FYP section of the app. It helps in attracting hundreds of new followers because the creators using the same sound feel a sense of community.


The phrase "tomato tomato tomato" is used to express disagreement

The audio “tomato tomato tomato” was created by TikTok user, Niqqitee. In the video from December last year, she is seen rambling about something. She then concludes the video saying:

“Omg, corny. Lame. Booo. Tomato tomato tomato, throwing tomatoes.”

Most of what she says in the video is difficult to decipher. However, that didn't stop it from going viral and collecting over a million views in just six days. The audio is now being used by other creators to express their disagreement with others' actions and poor decisions. The accent in the audio adds a certain level of humor to it.

Niqqitee reshared the video on Instagram after the video went viral on TikTok. Her post read:

"Wow!!!! This video I made in my bedroom 6 days ago has amassed 1 MILLION VIEWS, and the sound has been used by almost 8,000 people for multiple scenarios. I gained over 8,000 followers in less than a week (now at 12k total) from this video and others I made afterwards."

According to her, the audio is a form of self-love. Nobody should settle for the bare minimum and glorify toxicity, as per her post. In an interview with YSNRadio, she said that it felt incredible to see her sound go viral and celebrities using it in their videos.

The audio has already been used in 214k videos that have garnered millions of views, and that is barring her original viral video.
