I Hate My Autistic Son refers to a viral Reddit story about a parent who hates their autistic son, taken from a post to the /r/confession subreddit in late 2014. In early 2022, the story went viral as a TikTok sound when a creator made a text-to-speech Reddit story video with a Minecraft let's play playing in the background. TikTokers then started using the sound in their own videos, typically lip dubs, fail videos or nonsensical clips, inspiring a copypasta trend.


On September 3rd, 2014, Redditor vlog77 made a post to /r/confession[1] titled, "I hate my autistic son." The Redditor went on to write, "I can't help it, my life is constantly terrible. I spend as much time at work as possible. The worst part is that I am supposed to pretend that I am happy about it. When we get together with the other parents and everyone is pretending their kids are as normal as anyone else. They are not. All of us secretly wish they were never born." The post (shown below) received over 960 upvotes in eight years.

In early March 2022, the TikTok[2] account reddit.guy posted a video that read the "I hate my autistic son" story with a text-to-speech robot voice, having a Minecraft let's play video running in the background for ambiance. Although the video was later deleted by the account, TikToker[3] djkhaledsdildo was the first to exploit it on March 2nd, earning roughly 45,900 plays and 6,200 likes in 20 days (shown below).



Two TikTokers used the sound in their own videos on March 5th, 2022, as it spread on the platform. TikToker[4] hot.emo.lover received roughly 220,900 plays and over 36,700 likes for their video in two weeks (shown below, left) and TikToker[5] k_obrebski received roughly 298,700 plays and 52,000 likes for their video in two weeks (shown below, center). On March 6th, 2022, TikToker[6] introcide posted a video that used the sound and received roughly 278,200 plays and 47,600 likes in two weeks (shown below, right).


On March 7th, 2022, TikToker[7] user0i0ydi813i created a variant sound, splicing the "I hate my autistic son" text-to-speech voice with the Hi My Name Is Carmen Winstead sound and Skrillex's song "Bangarang." The TikTok (shown below, left) received roughly 370,200 plays and 53,500 likes in two weeks. On March 10th, TikToker[8] treestimestwo also made a variant sound, also referencing Carmen Winstead and earning roughly 205,700 plays and 32,600 likes over the course of 12 days (shown below, right).


As of March 21st, 2022, the hashtag "#ihatemyautisticson" on TikTok[9] has over 2.2 million views in total.

"/r/Confession is a place to admit your wrongdoings, acknowledge your guilt, and alleviate your conscience."

I can't pretend to have ever been in this guy's position, but even as an autistic person, I can't begrudge him going somewhere to anonymously vent about something he knows he can't talk about with anyone in his life.

I can't say any of those feelings seem anything close to healthy, but confessions are not supposed to be things you're proud of.
