The 'Skeleton Brunch' is a new TikTok trend, the only twist is, it does not exist. Despite numerous tweets referring to the trend that has led to a craze, there are no TikToks really dedicated to the faux trend.

Twitter users are sharing pictures of creepy skeletons seated around a table set with brunch bites. However, if one searches 'Skeleton Brunch' on TikTok, it only opens up old videos of Halloween-themed brunches.

Social media users soon started following the hoax trend and began hosting their own “Skeleton Brunch". A number of users started raising questions on why they couldn't find the trend on TikTok. "oh yeah, it's skeleton brunch," one user wrote, sharing a picture of a skeleton with a galss of juice kept on a table in front of it. "Me showing up for skeleton brunch, idk I'm not on tiktok," wrote another. Sharing a picture, another user wrote, "An early skeleton brunch (when you could still smoke at restaurants)".

Putting it short, the trend, where people have been setting up their own dining table alongside a skeleton, never existed. Multiple misleading posts on Twitter made people believe that it did.
