What is the burgundy sauce in reverse trend?

The burgundy sauce challenge has been a popular trend online for a while, and TikTok users are now realising just how problematic it is…

We do not encourage you to take part in this controversial challenge. Instead, we have provided shocking social media reactions to prevent you from doing so.

The challenge requires you to record yourself saying the phrase “burgundy sauce” before using online software to reverse the video.

Most users choose to use the video-sharing social media platform, Snapchat to do this.

After reversing the footage, the phrase “burgundy sauce” then becomes something much different…

Although the adjective “saucy” remains, the following term happens to be a derogatory racial slur.

A popular TikTok hashtag (#burgundysauce) currently has over 10 million views and is filled with content surrounding the challenge.

In 2019, @callumrhughes was under the impression that the outcome revealed the phrase “saucy nuggets” as he shared an explanation of the challenge to TikTok.
