Avani is one of the biggest names on TikTok, amassing 18 million followers on the platform, but now it appears that her account has been mysteriously deleted for seemingly no reason.

Update: April 30 – Avani’s TikTok account has come back and appears to be back to how it was.

Several stars have been born from TikTok, including the likes of Charli D’Amelio and Addison Rae, with Charli alone having over 50m followers on the platform, and Avani has been on the rise with her peers throughout the platform’s growth.

Now, though, her account can’t be found on TikTok, and neither she pr her fans can seem to figure out why.

Fans are devastated to see Avani’s TikTok account no longer active.

Posting early in the hours of Wednesday, April 29, Avani simply tweeted asking “Why me?” and it quickly became clear what she was exasperated at.

Responding to her tweet, her millions of followers were asking why her TikTok account had been removed and showed no signs of life, with no videos, followers or likes to be seen.

It’s not quite clear whether this shows that the account has been deleted (as some of the information, including username and bio, are still there) or something else has happened.

In a follow-up Tweet, Avani said it “just hurts” and is another reason for her to cry.

One fan theorized that Avani had actually been hacked, claiming that it’s “the exact reason” why people should delete TikTok from their devices altogether.

 

Obviously there’s not yet any evidence that the missing account is a result of a hack, so this tweet may just be a shot in the wind. But, as someone with such a public persona, Avani being hacked could be an absolute nightmare if any private information was to be released.

After the account went missing, Avani posted a series of unsettling tweets, including that she was having a panic attack, so hopefully her account can be recovered to give her some peace of mind. Dexerto has reached out to Avani for clarification.

TikTok are yet to comment on why Avani’s account appears to have been deleted, but with multitudes of angry fans worldwide, they may want to figure out the problem sooner rather than later.

Former Vine star reveals truth behind iconic “Adam” meme

Former Vine star Patrick Perkins has cleared up a myth about an iconic meme years after it first took the internet by storm.

While Vine shuffled its mortal coil in 2016, many of its biggest stars have carried on with short-form comedy on YouTube and now TikTok, including Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, and David Dobrik.

Even now, these short clip compilations still get millions of views on YouTube, and there are still multiple Instagram and Twitter accounts dedicated to them. Several vines have carried on their internet life as memes or gifs and have even been pasted onto merchandise.

The vine in question shows a blonde teenager in glasses blowing a smoke circle using a vape on a desk when the person carrying the camera blows it away. The teen turns to the camera and exasperatedly says “Adam!.”

Adam and Patrick starred in several iconic vines.

Now the star himself has come onto TikTok to confirm some lore surrounding him and his twin brother, which has baffled thousands who never knew the truth.

Another iconic and highly quotable vine involving one of the twins shows them walking into his bathroom in just a pair of boxers saying: “Hi, welcome to chillis.” In another, one of the twins begs viewers to stop comparing him to Chicken Little.

To most people, they look like the exact same person.

However, Patrick has explained in a viral TikTok that they’re actually identical twins. Patrick was the star of the vape video, while the other twin is Adam and the star of the Chilli’s vine. He also showed a picture of them together “since a lot of people don’t believe that there are actually two of us.”

Patrick also posted the video to Twitter and users were bowled over by the new information. One person wrote, “I feel like a different person for knowing this,” while another added, “world-shattering revelations are sometimes just small clarifications I guess.”

In less than 24 hours, Patrick’s tweet has amassed 4,000 likes and continues to grow, bringing back a sense of nostalgia for many and clearing up a long-standing internet myth.
