About

Don't Forget the Battle of Yultong, also known as Bro Forgot the Battle of Yultong, refers to a TikTok comment trend and meme about forgetting the Battle of Yultong, a 1951 Korean War battle between Chinese and Filipino troops. The Battle of Yultong comments were spammed on TikTok in early 2024, started by Filipino users when TikToker @titonoelofficial (a mime and "green man" soldier) faced controversy after allegedly body-shaming a plus-sized woman. Users told him, "Don't forget the Battle of Yultong" as a way to say that he was facing a much larger enemy (the woman) similar to the 900 Filipino soldiers who fought roughly 40,000 Chinese troops in the Battle of Yultong.

Origin

The Battle of Yultong was fought in 1951 between 900 Filipino soldiers and 40,000 Chinese and North Korean soldiers during the Korean War.[1] The significantly smaller Filipino battalion defeated the Chinese and North Koreans.[1]

Viral content and memes about the Battle of Yultong were posted to websites like TikTok[2] before the "Don't forget the Battle of Yultong" comment trend in early 2024. Some of the memes on TikTok[3] claimed that patriotic Filipinos would often namedrop the Battle of Yultong when losing an argument online.

The "Don't forget the Battle of Yultong" comment trend started on March 10th, 2024, when TikToker[4] @jamiecasino posted a video that accused TikToker @titonoelofficial (a mime and "green man" soldier) of body-shaming her plus-sized friend, gaining over 4.5 million plays and 178,900 likes in nine days (shown below, left).

On March 15th, TikToker[5] @titonoelofficial then posted an apology video, gaining over 14.1 million plays and 550,600 likes in four days (shown below, right).

@jamiecasino It’s womens month and nakalimutan na agad ng mga tao that BODYSHAMING will NEVER be okay & should never be tolerated. And No, people who react to bodyshaming are not sensitive, hindi lang senitive enough ang mga tao para piliin ang mga biro nila. #fypage #greenman #jamiecasino #jamiecasinio #trans #bodyshaming #greenman #baguiocity #panagbenga2024 #baguio2024 #baguiocity #baguio #notobodyshaming #bodyshaming @BaguioTourism ♬ Pop beat BGM / long version(1283324) – nightbird_bgm
