Sources report that a split screen TikTok is featuring a thoughtful commentary on the violence of urban gentrification alongside the Duolingo Owl twerking.
“What we’re seeing now is workers at new, huge companies moving in and driving out the old-timers,” the speaker said, directly to the left of the Duolingo mascot, who was absolutely throwing ass. “Prices and property value are going up, but so is the inequality in property wealth.”
“Of course, to communities of color, this kind of injustice is nothing new,” said the speaker, competing for the viewer’s attention with a person in a green owl suit bending over and shaking it. “The fact that white locals being forced out draws more public attention speaks to a larger issue.”
At press time, another split screen TikTok was featuring updates on women’s rights in Iran alongside a sped-up clip of Blackpink absolutely slaying.
