Let me be clear — I’m not really all that interested in Tinx’s fate. But given how “cancel culture” is such a big deal, it is worth talking about how Tinx has flamed out so suddenly.
So, as I understand it, Tinx — who was once called “the Internet’s older sister” is now persona non grata within the Tik-Tok community for being “fat phobic” and being a Republican.
But, that’s not really what’s going on — what’s really going on is she had apparently really aggravated Tik-Tok people by coming out of nowhere and rising too fast in the public eye.
She didn’t really pay her dues, in other words.
She was seen as too ambitious and fake and so some people took it upon themselves to kneecap her career. So, rather than some New Era where everyone is being canceled for 15 minutes, this is a far older story of ambition gone bad.
Anyway, it’s still possible that this will blow over and she will come roaring back. We’ll see.
