        What do energy drinks, chicken nuggets, and inaccessible healthcare have in common? They're all Americacore.
        TikTok users are spoofing  aspects of American life as "Americacore." As of Sunday, the tags #americacore and #americancore each have over 30 million views on TikTok, and the tag #Americacoreuwu has about 140,000 views.
        Under the guise of celebrating "Americacore," TikTok users are recording their trips to Target and Walmart, eating snacks like Goldfish crackers and Funfetti cookies, and using paper plates.  
        In one video romanticizing "Americacore," a TikTok user pours a can of Monster Energy into a teapot emblazoned with the American flag, and serves with a Twizzler.
        The videos are as much of critique of American norms as they are of the way Americans tend to idealize and infantilize East Asian cultures. The trend pokes fun at the absurdity of white Americans' fascination with arbitrary aspects of East Asian food, music, and traditions.

I think you are exaggerating the importance of such content on TikTok. Users strive to create fun and funny content like any other social network. In the case of Americacore, sarcasm and hyperbole are used because it is clear to everyone that Americans do not eat so constantly.
Although, I admit that I like Instagram more than TikTok. I have a blog where I talk about life in a trailer. I recently bought likes from 1394TA to increase the popularity of my publications. Don't be critical of the content from social networks because people are just having fun there.
