She also posted the video to Twitter, 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.

On January 8th, Dunne made a post to Twitter 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 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).

On April 6th, 2023, Hill posted a video following the "Pick Me" trend where she shows herself hanging in a closet like a shirt, lip dubbing, "Pick me, choose me, love me," garnering over 2.1 million views in a week (shown below, left). On April 10th, Livvy Dunne posted a video following the same trend, garnering over 1.1 million views in three days (shown below, right). On April 11th and 12th, the media outlets The Sun and New York Post published articles sharing the hypothesis that Livvy was making a dig at Breckie, further fuelling their beef.

Caktus AI Controversy
On February 27th, 2023, Dunne posted a sponsored video set to the What You Looking For sound on TikTok 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 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."
