Every person has their own insecurities, but it's clear that there's at least one thing that can get most men fired up with little to no effort.
A woman on TikTok who goes by @sadikhansk has gone viral for her online trolling of random guys who are livestreaming on the platform. She has one particular method that has proven to be effective time and time again.
People Are Loving This New Troll Trend
In a series of videos uploaded to her TikTok profile, Sadia shares clips of screen recordings she has taken while commenting on random men's live streams.
She has one simple comment but the men's reactions have viewers cackling.
A Woman Named Sadia Came Up With The Idea
Her video starts with text captions that say "calling random guys on my for you page 'short kings' for pure entertainment."
In case you've somehow avoided being sucked into the TikTok void, the For You Page is a collection of random users' content and livestreams, like an Explore page on Instagram.
She Stops By Random TikTok Lives To Leave A Comment
Her comment goes along the lines of "we love a short king!!!" with some heart eye and flame emojis. Seems harmless enough, right?
Wrong. Several of the men who received her "short king" comment leapt to their own defense immediately, almost as if they had been called something really derogatory.
Men Absolutely Cannot Handle It And Immediately Try To Prove Their Height
One man read the comment out loud and then said, "I'm 6'1" I can get anyone I want." Sure you can, buddy.
Unfortunately, other random dudes had similar responses to her comment and she sat back to laugh and watch the ego episodes unfold.
Some Guys Actually Got Agitated
Most men started by saying they were at least 6 feet tall, some jumped out of their chairs to try to show her their height in comparison to the bedroom, stretching to touch the ceiling, while others blamed the fact that they were sitting for appearing short.
Some of them became agitated and started fidgeting or getting flustered.
Sadia Hit Some People's Insecurities With This Comment
One man read her comment, "Gosh we love a short king," and snapped back, "Yeah, so you need to go find you one cause I ain't short—in any way."
Sadia went fishing for insecurities and she came away with a full net.
The Men Were Horrified To Be Considered "Short"
Of course, some men took the comment in good humor, but not without trying to defend themselves as well.
Based on their reactions, you would think that being short is one of the worst things you can be (it's not).
Commenters Were Quick To Leave Their Opinions
The viewers of Sadia's videos decided the men's reactions were truly hilarious and the clips racked up millions of views in a short amount of time, prompting her to create more videos in the series.
The moral of the story is don't take everything online so seriously.
Is This A Wild Double Standard?
The reality is, a lot of people are searching for a genuine connection and don't care about height (see Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner or Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman).
The best way to normalize it is to stop making such a big deal about it.
Watch Sadia's Troll Work Below
The #shortking trend originally showed up on TikTok as a celebration of men everywhere who are below 5'9" but are doing the most to make their partners the happiest they can be.
The truth is we really do love a short king! If only these dudes didn't get so defensive.
