Khaby Lame & Charli D'Amelio Are TikTok's Most Followed — Only One Made Forbes' Top Paid TikTokers List

Forbes has just released its list of highest TikTok earners. And in the news that should shock no one (though by no means does it make it any less annoying), exactly zero of the top earners on the platform are Black. Even worse, the top earners on the platform are getting opportunities that aren’t available to their Black counterparts. For example, Variety reports that Charli and Dixie D’Amelio — sisters who have made more than $20 million, combined, on the popular social media platform — have secured their own show courtesy of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Westbrook Media. They also had their own Hulu reality show, and have secured countless endorsement deals. What’s more, TikTok’s top influencers can charge a pretty penny for a sponsored post. According to Variety, most of the top influencers charge an average of $100,000 to $250,000 per post, with a top influencer charging $500,000 for just one sponsored post. Yet, Black TikTok stars are just as formidable as their white...

Khaby Lame Went From Losing His Job To Amassing 100 Million Followers As A Full-Time Silent TikToker

When TikTok star Khaby Lame first got started on the social media app in March 2020, he was working at a factory in Chivasso, Italy, a small town located in the Turn district. Then, without warning, he was fired, forcing him to return to his family’s “modest home.” But, as the Senegalese sensation told The New York Times, he chose to pivot his attention to TikTok on a full-time basis instead of getting a so-called “real job,” and it was the best decision he’d ever made. “It’s my face and my expressions which make people laugh,” he said to the outlet, while adding that his muted expressions are a “universal language.” Whether you understand what he’s saying or not, Lame definitely found a winning formula. He’s almost at 100 million followers on the micro-video app, and one site reports that someone like him can charge anywhere from $1 million to $2 million per post thanks to his dedicated, engaged following. @khaby.lame I have to read and you disturb me.🤨(Ps: Guys don’t try this at...

Naomi Osaka's New Barbie Doll Sells Out Within Hours Of Its Online Release

Naomi Osaka is a force to be reckoned with! Not only is she that girl on the tennis courts, but the young mogul in the making has become an entrepreneur, social activist, an advocate for mental health, and more — using her platform to be the change that the world so desperately needs these days. It’s only right that her latest endeavor includes her very own Barbie doll as a part of Mattel’s Barbie Role Model series. This is a collection of dolls that honors global role models from diverse backgrounds and fields who are breaking boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls, according to the company’s website . In fact, this isn’t the first time that Osaka has partnered with Barbie. She served as one of the brand’s shero dolls back in 2019. Once again, Osaka’s doll can hardly be kept on shelves. CNN reports that just hours after its release, the Barbie doll which sports a Nike tennis dress and white visor — an outfit that Osaka wore during the 2020 Australian Open — has sold...

21-Year-Old Khaby Lame Is Set To Overtake Charli D’Amelio As The Most Popular TikToker Of All Time

Move over white TikTokers! According to Insider, Khabane Lame has officially surpassed Addison Rae to become the second-most-followed TikToker in the world. The 21-year-old is also expected to pass Charli D’Amelio to become the most popular TikToker of all time. Lame is known for his comic expression and reaction videos to people doing things that don’t really make sense. His videos usually include him staring into the camera before sarcastically proving that there’s a simpler way to do whatever task is at hand. His latest reaction is to a clip of someone using scissors to open a container of milk. In the video, the Senegalese-Italian creator simply peels a milk carton open before pouring the liquid into a glass while smirking at the camera. “It’s my face and my facial expressions that make people laugh,” said Lame in an interview with The Times. @khaby.lame Let’s eat ?
