“Folding” on TikTok is marked by creators suddenly collapsing and folding in half, like a chair. The move sees creators swinging their arms over their heads, before bending from their waist, while keeping their knees locked in place.

Folding is in response to a comment or situation an individual finds to be annoying, disrespectful, off-putting, or surprising.

Folding was part of late July 2020’s viral Fold Challenge, with other 22.5 million views and 186 million views, under the associated hashtags #FoldChallenge and #Fold on TikTok.
