    People Are Sharing The Stupidest Thing An American Has Ever Said To Them, And Oh Boy

    "He was convinced that America had 40 states."

    It's no secret that Americans say some questionable things sometimes.

    @bernie2020

    Perhaps I should defend my people, but there's a trend going around TikTok that's making that a VERY difficult task. Australian TikTok user @voidable_ asked people to share the dumbest thing an American has ever said to them. His experience was with an American who insisted there were 40 states in the US:

    @voidable_

    Stitch this #au #aus #aussie #australia #australian #tiktokau #tiktokaustralia #stitch #america #usa #aussietiktok #australiacheck

    Here are some of the most 🤦‍♂️ responses:

    1. Someone asked this person how they were able to post stuff on social media while in Brazil, because they didn't think there would be internet there:

    2. And someone asked this person whether they had internet in Australia...while they were on video chat with them:

    3. Someone tried to tell this guy — who is Mexican — that Cinco de Mayo is Mexican Independence Day (it's not) and that Mexico is in South America:
