Who is Big Baby? The naughty TikTok phenomenon who has polarized public opinion
When was the last time you felt such pure joy and mischievous delight?
If you are on the internet, you probably have already seen or heard about the Big Baby. Just a baby who went viral on social media platform TikTok for being bigger than "normal". Big Baby looks like he lives in a school-going child's body. But to be fair, Big Baby with his unadulterated joy is a sight to behold. Which exposes society's tendency to attack anything that doesn't fit their idea of 'normal'.
The video that viral -- a baby jumping up and down on a man's back with a cheeky grin -- has sparked a series of memes.
Big Baby’s surprising size, coupled with a toothy smirk that heavily suggests chaos coming down the pipe, has polarized public opinion. A lot of memes with fat-shaming as the main content has intiated serious debates on platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. His mother Kathryn recently clarified that Big Baby is technically not a baby but a “healthy 3-year-old” named Gavin.
Kathryn had posted a video of Gavin lying on the couch after eating Easter candy, and other clips of him on their tractor, next to a raccoon cage, and rolling around in the mud. But it was the video of Gavin wearing a freshly powdered diaper that took off via TikTok's algorithm, gaining steam as comments rolled in.
Some of the comments and memes have been negative but Big Baby doesn't care and is simply having a nice time (look at his face). When was the last time you felt such pure joy and mischievous delight? Considering the times we find ourselves in, we could use with a lot more Big Babies.
