TikTok can sometimes feel like its
own little world, where slang and inside
jokes seemingly crop up out of nowhere.
The hashtag “Heather” is one of these
new trends and currently has over
265 million collective views on TikTok.
Calling someone a “Heather” can be traced
back to the song “Heather” by Conan Gray.
The song is about unrequited love and
Gray summarizes what “Heather” is to
him in an interview with Apple Music.
“The person that I really, really liked was in love with Heather. They were not in love with me, and because of that, I f****** hated Heather.
I hated Heather with all
of my heart and soul”.
The song picked up popularity on TikTok
and eventually evolved into girls
saying they wished they were Heather
