'that's not my son' TikTok trend

13 times the ‘that’s not my son’ TikTok trend will make you weep for what we’ve lost


RS (AKA Roll Safe) is going viral on British TikTok with his fake Fire In The Booth freestyle from the mockumentary #HoodDocumentary, and the trend it’s put with is the most I’ve laughed on TikTok in ages. But through the laughter echoes a real pain, because this trend is really making everyone realise how much iconic and timeless stuff in British culture has been changed by companies to absolutely WORSE versions of what we know and love. Everyone on TikTok has been using the “that’s not my son” trend to mourn the iconic stuff we’ve lost, and this roundup will have you laughing and sobbing over our fallen soldiers.
