The trend was started on Dec. 10 by user @esraroseaa, who asked her followers about their toxic traits and then shared her own.
“Me and a few of my girlfriends share a fake Instagram to creep people,” she revealed in her video to get the ball rolling. “This Instagram we’ve really worked on over the past few years. It looks real. Any time an ex or a current guy, we need to creep them or who they follow, we use this account. So toxic.”
A surprising number of people in the comments found @esraroseaa’s admission relatable and admitted to having similar accounts.
“My group’s has been going strong for 6 years and about 25 girls use it now,” one person admitted.
Others had their own toxic traits (both current and former) to share.
“I took notes from Cher in Clueless and I would send flowers to myself to post on my Insta story to make it seem as if I had men sending them to me,” one user revealed.
Moral of the story? We’re all a little bit over-the-top sometimes.
