Meet the TikTok Influencer Behind the Latest Trend in Social Media: TikTok Cults
TikTok isn’t exactly the place where you’d expect to find cults. The popular video-sharing app is known for social media influencers like Charli D’Amelio and Loren Gray, who danced and lip-synced their way to online-celebrity status. But for one TikTok creator named Melissa Ong, her journey to almost 2 million followers was much different. Ong now considers herself the leader (or “mother hen”) of a TikTok-based cult named the Step Chickens.
