The funny ‘protein bor’ trend explained

TikTok’s hilarious ‘protein bor’ trend all starts with an Irish TikTok user called James Doyle.

The fitness Tiktoker shares videos about the gym and often reviews various supplements and protein products, including shakes, yoghurts and bars.

Many of his followers noticed that due to his thick Irish accent, he says ‘protein bar’ a little strangely, with the the word ‘bar’ sounding like ‘bor’ – which is how the funny trend was born!

Every time he reviewed a new protein bar, fans would comment on his funny pronunciation, and it quickly went viral on the video-sharing app.

Now, people are commenting on the phrase ‘protein bor’ underneath random videos and the trend has completely taken over TikTok.
