Humorous takes on who among Asians are the most difficult to be in a relationship with have gone viral on TikTok.

Among the most popular clips are those by Toronto-based comedian Lisa Tran (@heybakedpotato), who rates Filipino women and Vietnamese men as the most toxic Asians. 

In a video posted on Wednesday that has been viewed over 1.8 million times, Tran uses an audio clip from the reality show “Dance Moms” as she reveals her rankings.  

After Filipino women, she places Vietnamese women next, followed by Cambodian, Korean, Chinese and Thai women in order from most toxic to least toxic.

“I’m Filipino and I agree,” wrote a commenter.

“I’m Filipina and this is legit lmao,” chimed another.

Using the same “Dance Moms” audio clip, Tran’s version for men, which was also posted on Wednesday, puts Filipinos in second place behind Vietnamese guys. They are then followed by Korean, Cambodian, Chinese and Japanese men.
