THE TERM has become more well-known on social media.

Now, users of TikTok want to learn more about “glazing” and what it means.

What does TikTok’s “glazing” mean?

Indy100 defines “glazing” as “to hype and compliment someone in a way that is over-the-top and cringey.”

It’s comparable to the expressions “kiss a**” and “s**k-up.”

The slang phrase, according to Know Your Meme, means “to over-compliment and over-hype someone to the point of being seen as inferior to them due to hyperbolically cringe adoration.”

Glazing, as defined by Distractify, is the act of complimenting someone excessively to the point of being offensive and annoying.

While complimenting someone is acceptable, someone who glazes is going too far with the praise and should be told to calm down.

“Imagine a doughnut that is so covered in glaze that it will make you feel sick.”

Since then, “Glazing” has appeared on TikTok.

It is also utilized on other social media websites, such as YouTube and X, formerly known as Twitter.

According to Know Your Meme, Twitch streamers like Kai Cenat, xQc, and Adin Ross were instrumental in spreading the phrase on the live-streaming platform.

It is now widely used on TikTok by different content producers in their videos.
