What is the world record for most comments on a TikTok?

Some TikTok users have been setting themselves the challenge of breaking the record for the most likes on one video, but there’s one video in particular that appears to be firmly in first place.

Over the past couple of years, video sharing platform TikTok has become the center of viral content on the internet, and with so many users already on the app and new people joining up each day, the numbers that some creators and videos can see are impressive.

When it comes to the most-liked TikTok, influencer Bella Poarch currently holds that title for her ‘M to the B’ lip sync video that has over 62.9 million likes.

However, with 1.9 million comments, that video is not the post with the most comments on TikTok.

Although it’s hard to track which videos have the most comments, originally that title appeared to be held by user dirty.kirby, who set his followers a challenge by making a video with the caption, “why does this video have the world record of the most comments.” The video currently has 4.2 million comments.

However, that record was well and truly broken back in 2021 by a different creator called meqs, who makes videos about Minecraft.

In this TikTok, the creator actively challenged their followers to break the record by telling them to leave as many comments as they possibly could.

And their request worked. The video quickly started garnering hundreds of thousands of comments, which soon after turned into millions.

At the time of writing, the video has an astonishing 10.6 million likes and currently appears to be unbeaten — though plenty of people are trying to achieve that same viral access by challenging the original poster.

The sheer speed at which this video managed to gain so many comments just goes to show that this record could be broken by someone else at any moment, but whether anyone will be successful any time soon remains to be seen.
