While the video is being celebrated on TikTok with the laughing emoji, dozens of reactions have now trailed the video, which was first posted on May 16, the International Day of the Boy Child, on X (previously Twitter).

Ezeani wrote, “Why are people who can’t protect kids having children???? I just stumbled on this video on TikTok and I pray this too will get to the right authorities. This is a baby boy who was raped by an older boy, a teenager. He’s definitely not more than 10 years but the people around him found out and the best they could do is make jest of it and create a “new sound”. I’m tired because going through the comment section, this apparently is funny to people. And they’re laughing!”

Blaqboi Victor said, “Sometimes men! Instead of taking that child to the hospital and reporting the case you are finding amusement in the child’s ordeal?”

Temi Ajao said, “I can’t even comprehend the reason why they were laughing and clapping! The poor boy! The PTSD!”
