Who TF Is Hawk Tuah Girl? Meet Hailey Welch, The Girl Who Wants You To "Spit On That Thang"

It seems like every other day, there’s a new main character on social media – sometime’s it’s for being the absolute worst person possible and other times it’s for being an absolute fucking legend. And this time, it’s the latter. I’d like to introduce you to the Hawk Tuah girl. Now if you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about (aka you live under a rock), here’s a break down on who is Hawk Tuah girl… and WTF does “hawk tuah” even mean?

What Is The Hawk Tuah Thing About?

In a street interview, TikTok user @dmarloww put a mic in front of two women and asks, “What’s one move in bed that makes a man go crazy every time?” And without skipping a beat, one of the women goes, “Aw, you gotta give him that *hawk tuah* and spit on that thang. You get me?” in an adorable Southern accent. Queen.

Turns out the Hawk Tuah girl is Hailey Welch from Nashville, Tennessee. The trending video (featuring the now-viral “hawk tuah” line) is actually a shorter edit of a longer video of Hailey dropping even more hot tips including “the only way to get over one is to get under another,” her explaining that she’d rather have backshots for the rest of her life over missionary because “because I don’t like somebody looking at me in my face,” and that she’s “not a pillow princess.” Iconic, truly.

Meaning Behind “Hawk Tuah”  

Now if you’re an innocent little angel baby you might have rewatched the video over and over, still confused about WTF “hawk tuah” even means. It’s very simple actually. She’s telling you to spit on the dick. Actually, not just spit on it. She’s telling you to gather as much spit in your mouth as possible (hence, the “hawk”) and really put it all out there. I mean, the wetter the better right?

Now some people have interpreted the “hawk” part as basically hocking a loogie, but because I’m not that freaky, I’m going to choose to believe she’s just really making sure there’s a lot of spit in her mouth.

Did Hailey The Hawk Tuah Girl Get Fired?

There were rumors swirling that Hailey was a preschool teacher who got fired because of her viral moment. But, as most things on the internet, that was a lie (as confirmed by the creator of the original video). In fact, Hailey is doing pretty well considering she just dropped a line of Hawk Tuah merch that she’s signing herself — and has already sold over $65,000 worth of hats. I’ll take 20.
