舔屏 tian

derogatory | Very Popular

to lick the screen

Tian is to lick, and ping is the screen. Inspired by the various “licking screen” GIF characters who are drawn to appear as if they’re licking the viewer’s face, the phrase is often used as a display of adoration and unrestrained affection for an Internet hit when it appears on the screen.
