About

Watching me Cry refers to a series of reaction videos featuring a clip from the reality television series Little Women: Atlanta in which Ms. Juicy gives an awkward facial reaction. Online, some have used the clip for jokes about seeing someone cry.

Origin

On April 5th, 2017, the Lifetime series Little Women: Atlanta aired the episode "Not So Little Surprises" in the United States.[1] In the episode, Nico tells Ms. Juicy that he is bisexual and begins to cry. Ms. Juicy proceeds to give a series of awkward facial reactions as Nico cries. Four days later, the channel uploaded a clip of the scene to YouTube. Within two years, the video received more than 550,000 views (shown below).



The following month, Twitter [2] @bleushockwave tweeted the clip with the caption, "When your friend breaks down about their stressful relationship, but you're single and can't relate." The tweet received more than 330 retweets, 340 likes and 7 million views in less than two years.
