The two little words have taken over social media but “mommy” doesn’t quite mean what you think. People aren’t apologizing to the women who raised them so much as they are sheepishly flirting with the women they’re crushing on. Here’s how this TikTok trend got started in a car parking garage.
What does “Mommy? Sorry” mean on TikTok?
On August 25, TikToker @roofjesus posted a skit where he approached a girl standing in the middle of a parking garage.
“Excuse me? Excuse me? Mommy? Sorry. Mommy? Sorry. Mommy? Sorry. Mommy? Sorry. Mommy?” he said to her.
According to Urban Dictionary, a “mommy” is a “hot female version of a daddy.” A “daddy” refers to a confident, attractive man. Now people are using @roofjesus’ audio to express their adoration for women. The “Mommy? Sorry” sound currently has over 74,000 videos associated with it.
