Ever wondered how a single image can capture a thousand words, making us burst into laughter or nod in relatable agreement? 

That's the magic of memes, the cultural currency that's taken over our screens and hearts.

Now think of your face being the next base of the most iconic, knee-slapping meme of the century. 

With TikTok’s new AI meme filter, it just might happen.

This trend is just starting to warm up as users are flabbergasted at TikTok’s audacity to roast them in broad daylight with hilarious captions that are supposed to match how they look and/or what they’re doing in their photos.

We all know that TikTok’s algorithm would most likely win the nomination for most shady sense of humor by a social media platform.

This new filter guarantees a win.

Let’s dig into it.

What’s the AI meme filter?

Alright, here’s how this filter works: you take a selfie, upload it to TikTok, and suddenly, boom! You've got yourself a meme that's as unique as you are. 

TikTok's brand-new AI meme filter is all about turning your everyday pics into rib-tickling memes.

How? Well, the filter's AI takes a good look at your photo, sizing up your expression, your vibe, and what you're up to. 

Then, it unleashes a caption that's hilariously spot-on – maybe a tad cheeky, too.

Yep, we're talking about witty captions that poke fun at your pic in a good-natured way. 

It's like your photo had a one-on-one chat with a stand-up comedian.

Disclaimer: if you’re extra sensitive, this may not be the best filter for you. Don’t say we didn’t warn ya. 

Here are some user examples:

How to get the AI meme filter on TikTok?

You can’t.

TikTok just deleted it.

Perhaps as an act of caution so they don’t get canceled. Those captions really came out swinging.

But this is not the first time that TikTok quickly recalled a filter/effect after it caused a stir.

But just in case they bring it back, here’s how you’d get to it:

  • Open TikTok 
  • Tap the plus button at the bottom of the screen
  • Then hit ‘effects’ and type ‘ai meme filter’ into the search bar
  • Find the filter that has a yellow smiley face with sunglasses and a caption that says, “AI Meme Maker Filter”
  • Upload your photo or take a new one
  • Click ‘apply’ and you’ll have your meme in seconds
