The origin of Protein Bors on TikTok

The trend of calling protein bars ‘protein bors’ seems to have stemmed from a TikTokker called @jamesdoylefitness, aka Protein Bor Papi.

James is an Irish TikTokker whose content mainly focuses on gym workouts, health, and fitness.

The protein bors trend seems to have stemmed from the way that James pronounces the word ‘bar’.

Due to his Irish accent, the word ‘bar’ now sounds like ‘bor’ when James says it.

His 134.7k followers seem to have simply latched onto this, and spread the phrase ‘protein bors’ far and wide.

They have commented on videos made by other GymTokers with the words ‘protein bors’.

“WHAT IS PROTEIN BOR?!” one user screams as his comments are flooded with the phrase.

“Why’s everyone commenting protein bor? What is that?” an American GymToker asks.

Additionally, a third confused TikTokker asks: “All I’m seeing in my comments is protein bor. What does it mean?!”
