The Radio Rebel Meme
‘Radio Rebel’ was one of those cliche “be yourself” Disney movies from the early 2010s. It gained a lot of attention on TikTok in 2020. In one of the last scenes of the movie, Debby Ryan, who stars as the main character Tara in ‘Radio Rebel’, does a face. This mixture of a push-hair-away-from-eyes smirk looking up face stayed on everyone’s mind and For You Page. Here is the face:
It’s your typical Gen Z meme. In other words, people on TikTok have been using Debby’s meme on many things, editing it to make even funnier results. Now, instead of making a big deal of this meme, Debby Ryan’s new TikTok assured everyone that she didn’t take the meme too personal, or at least got over it.
When Debby gets to ‘Radio Rebel‘, and what she’d wear to fashion week in the movie, she wears something very similar to her outfit in ‘Radio Rebel’. Then, right before the end of the TikTok, she does it. She does THE FACE! Debby really snapped! This blew everyone away. After 8 years, Debby Ryan can still make the face.
After seeing this, many famous TikTokers made sure to give love. People like skincarebyhyram, avani, micacow, willywonkatiktok, brenna.kaci, piffpeterson, salinakilla and more commented things along the lines of “icon” “omg” “this is it”.
