There’s a reason everyone is saying “Boo, tomato” — and you can thank TikTok.
The phrase “Boo, Tomato,” or some iteration of “Boo, I’m throwing tomatoes,” has taken over social media. It all started with a viral video by the TikToker @niqqitee. The influencer was discussing her dating woes when she dropped the iconic phrase. Not only is the sound all over TikTok, but now it has also entered the popular lexicon (online at least).
Influencer @niqqitee posted the original video back in December 2021. People quickly begged her to isolate the snippet and make it a sound.
“Oh my god. Corny. Lame. Boo. Tomato. Tomato. Tomato. I’m throwing tomatoes,” @niqqitee said in a completely deadpan voice.
The audio was practically destined to become a meme because it’s applicable to just about anything anyone doesn’t like. It has since been used in over 213,000 TikTok videos.
