El Paso can be a hot mess sometimes.

Don't get me wrong, I love it here; but you have to admit, sometimes, El Paso, you're too much.

It's really not that bad, and really not something all native El Pasoans can't handle. Much like any other city across the nation, it comes with the good and the bad. But sometimes, you don't realize how bad it is until it's blatantly pointed out  to you!

We all know Fitfam right? We love it. These days, it has become some people's first source for news- and they wouldn't be wrong at all; Fitfam actually does a pretty good job at reporting facts- not just opinions. And you can't deny, they are basically El Paso's TMZ; I love it.

Over on TikTok, user @they_hatevic used a majority of stories found on Fitfam- that were eventually reported on the news- and compiled a 14 second video to give you a glimpse of what a disaster El Paso can truly be. Don't be alarmed at the images you'll see.


Yeah, we can be a hot mess sometimes. It's not a pretty picture, but user @they_hatevic didn't just highlight the bad; they also highlighted the beauty of El Paso in another TikTok video. And I think this one will actually make you feel a lot better about living in the Sun City

The sunsets, Chico's Tacos, the mountains and the beautiful artwork at Lincoln Park, it really look like the good outweighs the bad in El Paso.
