“What’s something popular that you refuse to get into?” That’s the question that shot to Reddit stardom last week. People in the AskReddit community flocked to list the things they hate but that everyone else seems to love. Here are 10 of the most upvoted responses:
10. Annoying/Pranking People for Viral Videos
At number 10, we have this item from Reddit User Shmatty29, who hates it when people go around pranking or annoying people to get views on their videos. Others jumped in with their support. One said, “I’ve seen two videos recently where someone shouted “he’s got a gun” to inspire panic and make people stampede. How is your life so meaningless and disconnected that you think that’s funny, witty, entertaining or has any positive aspects?”
9. Sports Betting
ProfessionalMusic679 raised a serious point when they suggested, “Sports betting, that’s it. I’ve seen friends lose a lot and go into debt behind it.” Snubda hopped on the thread to offer their own concerns: “Man my younger brother sport bets a ton and has been ultra successful but I’m nervous about what happens when his luck turns. I won’t touch that ****.”
The 8th most upvoted response came from user subbearimon, who refused to get into Twitter. Others agreed, while one helpful response offered advice on how to leverage the site without ill effects: “Twitter is an excellent source for sports news if you curate your feed and choose to only view the ones you follow. Never dive into the comments and block every obvious crazy/troll. Otherwise, stay away.”
7. Lip Injections
The Reddit user Altruistic_Lead6799 came up with this popular answer to the question. “Lip injections” received 10.5k upvotes in no time. It created a whole conversation about the pros and cons (mostly cons) of lip injections. Warblade7 noted that “They are like the worst short-term gain for long-term downside. Even billionaire women can’t make it look good after a few years.”
6. This Person’s Stepsister
One Redditor said the thing they refuse to get into that others find so popular is “my stepsister.” The comment received 10.5k upvotes. Swimming-Barracuda65 then chimed in to offer their agreement, saying “your stepsister.” Someone else said, “I also choose their guy’s stepsister.”
True to form, Reddit started thinking outside the box and offering some tongue-in-cheek responses. One of the most popular? Heroin, followed shortly thereafter by fentanyl.
4. Credit Card Debt
Sticking with the tongue-in-cheek suggestions, Reddit user thebishtable suggested that credit card debt is something else popular that they refuse to partake in. Others hopped on with various responses – some bemoaning the tribulations of CC debt, others telling the world how much debt they’re in, and so on.
3. Elf on a Shelf
Grasshopper716’s suggestion of elf on a shelf soon garnered over 21k upvoted. As for their reason, they said, “I refuse to have to come up with creative **** for 25 straight days until my kids no longer believe in Santa.” Another user noted another potential downside to the tradition: “It also accustoms kids to constant surveillance, so yeah power to you broseph.”
27.2k people upvoted Reddit user Garlicroastedpotato’s suggestion of America’s fastest growing sport, Pickleball. Their original post said “Everyone my age is playing pickleball. So much so that they cancelled my basketball league to make more space for the pickleball league.” Someone else jumped on the thread, saying “I ******* hate pickleball with a passion. I play tennis and often times these group of pickleball players would literally hog the courts all day.”
The most upvoted response to OP’s question came from KB9103, who wrote a single word: “TikTok.”
Dozens chimed in with their agreement. One said, “Why would I need TikTok when everything is reposted to Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and Reddit? Then one week later I get to relive the same posts, but with someone’s silent reaction spliced into the video.” Someone else hates how addictive it is, saying “I went onto it during lockdown to mock it, and I’ve doom scrolled hours of my life away. Urgh it’s horrible!”
