On January 8th, TikToker[9] @thereal.turbo showed a video of the same sign, also filming Livvy. She is seen at the end talking to her fans and getting a selfie with them, garnering over 1.1 million views in four days (shown below, left).

Later that day, TikToker[11] @sampeszek posted a video of herself walking out of the arena to a crowd of boys chanting Dunne's name and yelling "we want Livvy!" captioned, "When you leave the arena, but you're not Livvy" garnering over 1.5 million views in four days (shown below). She also posted the video to Twitter,[12] writing, "This is actually so scary and disturbing and cringey. I’m embarrassed for them…" garnering over 2,000 likes and 200,000 views in five days. While some found the crowd creepy, others saw it as simply fans going to an event to support a creator they like, drawing comparisons to fangirls reacting to pop stars.[20]

On January 8th, Dunne made a post to Twitter[13] asking for respect from her fans, writing, "I will always appreciate and love the support from you guys, but if you come to a meet, I want to ask you to please be respectful of the other gymnasts and the gymnastics community as we are just doing our job❤️," garnering over 6,200 likes in four days. On January 9th, TMZ[14] reported on the story, claiming that a reporter on the scene heard that LSU had to move its team bus to avoid the crowd.

Breckie Hill vs. Livvy Dunne Beef

Throughout the 2020s, Breckie Hill's comment sections became increasingly filled with comments comparing her to TikToker and gymnast Livvy Dunne for both her appearance and her content, including comments calling her "Livvy with bigger boobs." Some commenters notably tag Dunne in Hill's comments. Livvy started responding to comments like this in February 2023. On February 6th, 2023, she posted a video to her TIkTok page @breckiehill_ calling Livvy out for making a comment on Instagram with her friends seemingly implying she's a Livvy dupe, garnering over 5 million views in three weeks (shown below).

On February 8th, 2023, TikToker @digitalcloutboi posted a video sharing a clip from one of Livvy's livestreams in which she talks about why she's never acknowledged the dupe comments, claiming it's because the topic surrounds the sensitive topic of "body image" (shown below, left). This is seemingly the only time Livvy has publicly, directly acknowledged Hill.

On February 12th, TikToker @stevejoblessvii posted a clip from one of her lives in which she claims that Livvy blocked her after people started tagging her in Hill's videos, alleging that Livvy implied she's a dupe version of her in an Instagram comment (shown below, right).

Caktus AI Controversy

On February 27th, 2023, Dunne posted a sponsored video set to the What You Looking For sound on TikTok[21] advertising Caktus AI, an AI marketed to help students write essays, garnering over 946,000 views in four days (shown below).

On March 2nd, The Advocate[22] published an article claiming that LSU, the school she attends, does not support the AI, with a representative of the school quoted as saying, "using AI to produce work that a student then represents as one’s own could result in a charge of academic misconduct, as outlined in the Code of Student Conduct."

Baby Gronk Rizz King, Livvy Just Rizzed Him Up

Baby Gronk Rizz King, Livvy Just Rizzed Him Up refers to a series of words uttered in a viral video on TikTok posted by TikToker h00pify in mid-2023 in which the host told a story about 10-year-old football star Baby Gronk (real name Madden San Miguel) going to LSU and meeting Livvy Dune where he purportedly used rizz and was also "rizzed up" by Livvy herself. The video was perceived as cringe by many on TikTok and Twitter, expressed via the reactions and duets to the video, as well as in memes made about the video that satirized the rizz nicknames and rizz-adjacent Zoomer slang terms that the backward-wearing baseball cap host originally used. Many made memes that also referenced the "Drip King" who Baby Gronk was imagined to have replaced in a secondary video from TikToker h00pify.
