The Cartoon filter has become the newest trend to rise to prominence on TikTok, with users flocking to use it. If you don’t know how to get it, but want to, simply follow the steps below. 

TikTok is, for the most part, all about jumping on a trend. Be it a dance routine, reacting to another uploading, or dueting with someone, the social media app is dominating by trends. 

Some of the most popular trends have come from being able to add a filter. We’ve seen filters that make TikTokers look like an Anime character, some that turn everything black and white, as well as others that turn you into a Disney character of your choosing. 

A handful of these filters are built into TikTok, and it’s just a case of adding them to your video, but others – like the new, incredibly popular Cartoon filter – require you to go elsewhere.

Where to get the Cartoon filter for TikTok

In the case of the Cartoon filter, it’s exactly what it sounds like – it’ll make you look like a cartoon character. A few of these have popped up previously, but the new one is the best of the lot. 

However, for this one, you will need to go into Snapchat to get in. Simply head over there, add the filter to your face, take a photo or video, and then save it to your camera roll.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll then be able to upload it to TikTok and share it with the world. It’s a simple enough process once you’ve jumped through the first few Snapchat-related hurdles to get it.

  1. Open Snapchat and click the smiley face on the right-hand side
  2. Click explore, again in the bottom right 
  3. Search ‘Cartoon’ and select ‘Cartoon by Snapchat’
  4. Take your photo or video
  5. Save it to your Camera Roll
  6. Upload to Tiktok and away you go!

How long this filter trend sticks around on TikTok remains to be seen, so you’ll want to get your videos recorded and get them out before everyone moves on to the next one.

What that’ll be, though, who knows. We’re approaching the holiday season and new years, so maybe it’ll be related to that.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
