CELEBRITY Social media
TikTok is the latest social media platform to gain popularity. Gen Z has already taken over, but many celebs are jumping on the bandwagon. The app allows users to create short videos to share with their followers. There are dance challenges, celebs goofing around at home, and unlimited cute pets.
Dolly Parton caused a lot of excitement when she seemed to have joined TikTok on September 26, greeting her fans with a video starting with her instantly recognizable: "Woohoo, well hello!” She continued, “I guess I’m on TikTok. I just dropped in to say, everything’s gonna be okay. You keep the faith.” But fans were sent into another tizzy soon after when her account, @itsdollyparton, had disappeared. They were upset and turned to Twitter to express their disappointment and share their disbelief at the message displayed on her TikTok: "This account was banned due to multiple Community Guidelines violations."
Though the country legend herself has not responded to the commotion, several outlets are reporting that the account was actually fake. In the post, she reminded fans to watch another appearance that night, where she planned to read a story.
According to Australian news outlet The New Daily, one clever online detective found out that the clip was actually an old video posted to the TikTok account for Parton’s foundation, The Imagination Library, a free book gifting program for kids, which explains her promise to read a story, though many had thought she was referencing her upcoming book, 'Run, Rose, Run.' The original video was posted in 2020 and had been lifted to create a new, fake, TikTok account which quickly garnered over 500,000 followers.
