This is the first time I've ever seen an actual article on KYM and not see a single reason why it has an article on KYM. And apparently according to the 24K people who have showed up here and not said a single thing….I'm not the only one here! And considering there's people on Tiktok just like "Wait what's the deal with her?" When it comes down to her actual Tiktok fame/KYM article that it kinda seems like that chick that lives in a van on YouTube and got like 2 million subscribers in 2 days because it's obvious YouTube's trying to make their own YouTube stars since the people they promote usually get into…..controversy….This is what it feels like, Tiktok just kind of pushing this brand new star who seems harmless in every sort of way to the point where people are just like "Wait what?" when she suddenly becomes some overnight sensation.

Basically what I'm trying to say here is Tiktok is trying to make the frogs gay.
