On May 12th, 2020, Redditor 1BoiledCabbage posted to r/OutoftheLoop[1] saying, "There have been at least 10 profiles on Tik Tok I've seen today who have had this profile picture or a variation of it as their profile picture. Some I have seen where she is wearing sunglasses, some where she is smoking. I don't believe I've seen this girl before. What is going on? Why are they using her profile picture?" The post garnered over 100 points (84% upvoted) and was successfully answered by users explaining the step chicken cult. That day, TikToker chunkysdead announced that a "battle zone," or unsuspecting account to be spammed with cult comments, would be announced the next day at six PM (shown below, left).
