Does This Viral TikTok Show an Ungrateful Kid or a Totally Clueless Parent?

The “crying gift” is Christmas gold, according to my mom. It’s the one present that is so meaningful or unexpected it makes the recipient cry tears of joy — and it’s a shot of pure serotonin for the gift-giver. This year, we gave my mom the crying gift in the form of tickets to Taylor Swift’s 2023 Eras Tour, which are so hard to get it feels like winning the lottery if you score some. As a huge Swiftie, she was thrilled, and it was so much fun to see her reaction. One mom on TikTok was clearly expecting the same thing when she gave her daughter Swift tickets for Christmas, but the girl had a totally unexpected reaction.

In a now-viral TikTok on @allybeach919, a mom shared a video of her daughter’s reaction that left her “speechless.”

“What is this?” the girl asks. It’s Christmas morning, and there are unwrapped gifts in the background. The daughter is dressed in a pink skull robe and pulls out a piece of paper from a box.

“Oh. Taylor Swift,” she says, as she opens the paper. She is just blankly looking at a printout of her concert tickets. “Whoa, I’m not a big fan,” she adds, as she glances up at her mom. Her WTF expression screams, “why would you buy this for me?”

“What?” the mom responds as the video ends. The anti-climatic reaction video has 20.5 million views at last count, and people are going wild in the comment section.

First of all, how could you not know that your daughter doesn’t like Taylor Swift? Every Swiftie fan I know makes it a big part of their personality, so it’s impossible to not know how much they love the “Anti-Hero” singer. “They didn’t think to check that she likes Taylor Swift..?” one person commented.
