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.

Many Filipino commenters jokingly supported Tran’s rankings.
“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.
The video, which has received over 3.6 million views, also generated positive responses. Vietnamese commenters got in on the joke, celebrating that they “won” and are “always number one.”
Filipino American TikTok user @notjeb made his own version, rating Vietnamese women as the most toxic, followed by Filipino, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Cambodian, Laotian and Thai women in order of most toxic to least toxic.
