Popular TikToker AngryReactions “stole” Charli D’Amelio’s TikTok account with the help of the app’s new nickname trick and managed to fool his followers.

In early August 2022, TikTok made a change to the platform For You Page that began displaying a channel’s nickname instead of its username, allowing users to impersonate influencers.

This change has allowed verified users to change their name to another verified user, making it appear as if they are the real deal on the FYP and in the comments section of videos.

AngryReactions recently changed his nickname to Charli D’Amelio, fooling his followers into thinking he “stole” her phone and account.
