About

Xiao Xiao, also known as the Chinese Kick Girl, Kick Girl or Chinese Junk Food Girl, refers to physically deformed Chinese girl who went viral on the TikTok page Chinese Junk Food (@chinesejunkfood2023) in September 2023 for kicking an older woman and drag performer holding a microphone who was asking her questions. The girl was nicknamed "Kick Girl" by FlopTok meme creators who made edits with her, comparing her to Jiafei. The girl's real name and identity is Xiaoxiao and she's originally from the Douyin page of Mei Niang Xinxin (媚娘欣欣新号) who posted a series of videos with her in late 2023. Xiao Xiao gained fan edits and memes on FlopTok going into late 2023.

Online Presence

Xiao Xiao's online presence started on February 21st, 2020, when her Douyin[8] account @xiuzhenxiaox86 posted its first video to Douyin[9] which received over 5,900 likes in three years (recording shown below, left).

The videos, which continued into September 2023, were seemingly clips from a longer LIVE in which Xiaoxiao was a guest star in her singing and dancing antics.
