What is the crying face filter on TikTok?

If you’ve been on TikTok recently, you may have seen the crying face filter prank on your For You Page.

The filter transforms people’s faces so that it looks like they’re crying hysterically.

The filter gives you upturned eyebrows, bloodshot eyes brimming with tears, and an exaggerated frown.

It can turn even the most mundane, neutral facial expression into that of someone going through an emotional breakdown.

TikTok users put the filter on their unsuspecting friend before approaching them and asking them why they’re crying.

The target is obviously confused, sparking some hilarious results and arguments.

How do I get the crying face filter on Tiktok?

In a surprise twist, the filter isn’t actually available on TikTok!

It’s actually the brainchild of Snapchat – so if you want to make use of it, you’re going to have to head on over to Snapchat instead.

Once on Snapchat, the filter is super easy to set up. All you have to do is train your camera on who you want to prank, apply the filter, and start filming.

Once you’re done, save the video, head back over to TikTok and upload it to your profile.

Where did the filter come from? Well, many seem to think that it was inspired by Amber Heard‘s ‘crying’ in her trial against Johnny Depp.

However, Snapchat has denied that this is the case…

Some celebrities have even started jumping on the TikTok trend too.

Ant and Dec are the most recent stars to take part in the trend, with Ant pranking Dec by using the filter.

“You seem really upset, is everything okay with you? What are you crying for?” Ant asks a confused Dec.

“Who has upset you? I’ll beat them up if they’ve upset you!” he says.
