Not even Reba McEntire can resist the TikTok trend about her

Legendary country singer Reba McEntire had the best version of the “I’m a Survivor” TikTok meme. 

You’ve probably seen tons of these funny videos on your FYP. The trend uses a snippet from McEntire’s classic 2001 song “I’m a Survivor.” You may recognize it as the theme from the singer’s hit WB sitcom Reba. 

The “I’m a Survivor” TikTok trend 

In the comedic meme, people highlight their ordinary life struggles to frame themselves as heroes and heroines. Basically, they’re hilariously claiming they’re brave for doing very basic things. 

In the trend, McEntire sings, “Oh, a single mom who works two jobs / Who loves her kids and never stops / With gentle hands and a heart of a fighter / I’m a survivor.” 

While McEntire’s song is about someone who actually faced hardships (as a premature baby who grows up to be a single mother), hardships these problems are not. 

TikToker @lydianoellemyers claimed she was a “survivor” when she carried her groceries out of the car without her husband’s help. 

Meanwhile, TikToker @iconaklast’s version showed him throwing out expired milk — an arduous task — dressed like McEntire herself. 

“When my husband forgets to put gas in my car and I’m forced to actually stop at a gas station,” @mommytransformer said in her caption.

She then bravely filled up her car’s tank.

The country singer carried two buckets of food up to her stable of donkeys. The singer was right — the animals weren’t interested at all. McEntire’s video racked up 18.9 million views.
