TikTok star Nessa Barrett “harassed” after her address leaks

TikTok star Nessa Barrett has called out “rude and weird” people harassing her after her address, her phone number and her parents details were leaked online.

Nessa has been somewhat of a divisive figure on TikTok in 2020, most notably after she was accused of offending the Muslim community as she danced to a reading from the Quran.

That said, the controversy hasn’t halted her progress at all. As of May 28, she has 8.1 million followers on TikTok and 2.2m on Instagram, growing exponentially every day.

Barrett has had a lot of her and her parents’ personal information leaked.

Regardless of what you think of her videos, though, leaking somebody’s personal contact details is actually illegal in the US, and can cause serious issues for the person being targeted.

While sometimes the leaked information comes to nothing, when people have a big platform such as Nessa, fans and haters alike will often target the victim for harassment. Nessa has spoken out about the issue, calling those who are invading her privacy and that of her family “rude and weird.”

In a series of tweets posted on May 27, Nessa asked for people to “stop invading privacy,” adding that “my address has fully been leaked… and now people have constantly been banging on the door and taking videos.”

Nessa later went on Instagram Live to address the issue, explaining what has happened and saying that she’s “stepping in” because now her family are becoming endangered.

“My home address has been circling around, my family has been getting harassed,” Barrett explained. She also confirmed that she wasn’t at home, so fans showing up to meet her would be disappointed.

It should go without saying that turning up at famous influencers’ houses is almost never a good idea. In December 2019, David Dobrik hit out at fans for showing up at his house, a sentiment commonly shared by top stars.


Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
