Singer and rapper Ashnikko has hit out at TikTok “straight boys” for using her latest single ‘Daisy’ as a sound for their videos.

The blue-haired singer is a well-known voice on TikTok after her song ‘Stupid’ went viral on the platform. The song was used by some of the app’s biggest stars including Loren Gray, Josh Richards, and Avani Gregg. In total, the official track was used 2.4 million times.

Since then Ashnikko has enjoyed even more success and attention, having collaborated with other musicians such as Grimes and Brooke Candy.

Her most recently released single ‘Daisy’ has been used by TikTok stars such as Abby Roberts and Caleb Finn. It’s also a sound frequently used for one of the latest trends where creators imagine themselves inside the Harry Potter universe.

Ashikko herself is an avid TikToker, frequently posting clips from her music videos or short comedy videos, and she’s earned 1.3 million followers as a result.

But when it comes to the use of her music, Ashnikko isn’t afraid to express her opinion. On Tuesday she duetted user @jacksonpassaglia who used ‘Daisy’ for a video, made faces of disgust, and wrote, “Please god no don’t let straight boys do this to my baby.”

In the comments below she added, “the way this brought me straight back to my twilight phase, actual chills down my spine! Fear and terror.”

The video in question is captioned “pov a girl wants to become a vampire, like her bf” and uses two lines from the song: “I’m crazy but you like that, I bite back.” The rest of the dialogue is made up by Jackson to fit the scene he created.

Ashnikko even commented on the video itself saying, “yes Edward kill me!!”

Fans of the song were quick to agree with one user writing, “I’m so sorry we’ll get through this together.” Another person added, “Imagine making a video and the creator of the song you use makes a video gagging lmao.”

Obviously, sounds on TikTok are free for any creator to use, so Ashnikko might not have much luck stopping people, but she’s clearly not afraid to make the request.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

How to enter

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.

Next, pay to add partake in the experience and select what video or photo you want to go to the moon and upload it to MrBeast’s site.

How to go to the moon with MrBeast
Making it to the moon has never been easier.

That’s it, you’re done. MrBeast’s team will load the content into a “moon-ready” harddrive and NASA will send the hard drive to the moon.

If you know anyone who is really interested in space, this could be a really cool surprise for them. Go ahead and reach for the stars.
