Did you all hear the news that Lizzo is quitting music, and that BTS changed their mind after fan backlash and are actually not going on a hiatus?
Sorry, y’all… You just got #Krissed!
Okay, I’m sorry for that, I really am, but I had to. Over the past few days, the Kris Jenner #GetKrissed TikTok trend has been all over my FYP, and I’m tired of getting #Krissed. Why do I fall for it every time, even though I recognize the now-viral sound and see the hashtag #Krissed in the caption? I know what I’m getting myself into every single time, and yet, like clockwork, I fall for it. I’m tired, Kris. Please leave me alone.
In the popular Kris Jenner #GetKrissed TikTok trend, which follows the same formula of the 2006 Rickroll internet meme, creators trick users into believing some shocking news — and then, they tragically get #Krissed. Like, I really wanted to believe that Zendaya is pregnant because she and Tom Holland would have the cutest baby ever — but obviously, that was too good to be true.
The viral sound originates from none other than Kris Jenner, obviously.
User @wandakardashian originally posted a video with a sped-up version of the song “Space Song” by Beach House (which, if you know, is a really sad — but amazing — song) to TikTok, saying, “I can’t believe Pete did this to Kim, she was so happy with him,” along with a paparazzi shot of a distraught Kim Kardashian walking out in public with her three children.
In the video, the song playing in the background then abruptly changes to a sped-up version of the upbeat 2009 hit song Lady Marmalade by Christina Aguilera, along with a video of Kris Jenner dancing and singing. Over the video, @wandakardashian wrote, “YOU JUST GOT KRISSED! SEND THIS TO YOUR FRIENDS TO TOTALLY #KRIS THEM! 🤣😝😁🤪.”
And the rest is history.
In the Kris Jenner #GetKrissed TikTok trend, users get pranked… Every. Single. Time.
What gets me about this trend is that I, along with millions of other TikTok users, fall for the Kris Jenner #GetKrissed TikTok trend every single time. Like, a little voice in the back of my head tells me that I’m getting #Krissed, but I ignore it, thinking that maybe, just maybe, this one video will be different — and every time, it’s not different. It’s the exact same. I get #Krissed, every single time.
Many creators have used the viral trend to trick users into thinking that their favorite celebrities are pregnant, all of which I also naïvely fell for — including Zendaya, Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande, Kourtney Kardashian, and even Addison Rae (almost a year later, I’m still looking for one — just one — Sunrae in the wild, though).
Other honorable mentions include user @kaihewitt_ convincing everyone that Euphoria was getting canceled, creator @ilovecheesecake_1234 persuading users that Kim Kardashian was going to be in the last episode of season four of Stranger Things, and Jojo Siwa telling fans that she was taking a break from being in the public eye.
Companies even got in on the trend, with Pacsun convincing users that they were shutting down all of their in-person stores, and Jamba Juice telling TikTokers that they were discontinuing their bestselling Mango-A-Go-Go smoothie (which would have been a crime).
Please don’t try the Kris Jenner #GetKrissed TikTok trend.
I know I usually show you how to try these viral TikTok trends out yourself, but bestie, I’m begging you. I’m so, so tired of getting #Krissed. I really can’t take it anymore, and I’m desperate. It makes me not even want to go on TikTok anymore, and obviously I need to keep going on the app because it’s my job to research and write about viral TikTok trends. So once, just this once, please don’t try this trend, bestie. Thanks in advance.
