What is the watermelon filter on TikTok?
The watermelon filter on TikTok was popularized in November 2023 and was created to support the people of Gaza.
Each filter will start generating revenue when it reaches 200,000 qualified video publishes within its first 90 days and has a maximum reward of $14,000 USD.
The creators of these filters claim that they’ll donate the revenue that they’ve earned to support Palestine/Gaza.
A watermelon is being used in the filter because it represents the flag of Palestine (red, black, and green).
The most popular watermelon filter on TikTok is “Filter for Good” which was created by @xojourdanlouise.
Jourdan is an AR Creator on TikTok who is known for making glamour filters.
In early November 2023, she created the “Filter for Good I” filter.
It’s a game where you’ll have to drag a watermelon across a line to collect watermelon seeds.
The creator of the filter claims that she’ll donate all of the revenue that she earns to charities providing aid in Gaza.
In about 2 weeks, the filter hit a maximum reward of $14,000, and she said that she’ll get paid on December 15 when she’ll donate the money.
