TikTok's Bold Glamour Filter Will Exacerbate Girls' Mental-Health Spiral

TikTok launched a beguiling new filter last week that promises to turn every user into the most flawless version of themselves.

While some social-media influencers reveled in their goddess-like transformations, many users recoiled at the dramatic disparity between their real and artificial appearances.

“Catfishing to the next level,” female TikToker Malene Pedersen captioned on a video of her trying out the filter, which TikTok calls “Bold Glamour.”

“This filter makes me feel ugly in real life,” another wrote on her video.
