Here’s how TikTokers are reacting to the "My Red Flag" trend.

A user on TikTok named @ByaliWood used the red flag filter in a TikTok video until it landed on the “is always right" card. She hilariously responded by saying, “Yeah, it’s called being the eldest daughter." In her caption, she mentioned that she has an older sister complex!

Another user on TikTok named @Jobajo let the red flag filter come for her about her top three worst traits. One of the cards mentioned that she has a messy room. She hilariously panned her camera across her bedroom to reveal just how disorganized her bed and floor were at the moment.

A third user by the name of @BundleofStephanie landed on the “takes too many selfies” card. Instead of trying to deny that the red flag filter was totally wrong about her, she shyly looked away from the camera and started laughing. She sort of accepted her fate! Her caption even says that she got “called out”!

There is a lot of fun to be had with a harmless and hilarious TikTok trend like this one. Users simply have to keep in mind that it’s not meant to be taken too seriously.
