In general, trends occur on TikTok because they are popular with at least part of TikTok’s user base. Some trends are widely adopted because most people find them enjoyable, while others are far more divisive and often cause more outrage on the platform than they’re worth.

Recently, however, the trend has evolved into parody versions, with TikTok users using the term “dup” (or “doop”) to describe someone else or someone who looks like a “cheap” version of an item.

After all, many people can’t afford designer fashion and shouldn’t be judged for wearing what they want within their budget. There is, and TikTok users admit that it doesn’t necessarily matter.
