About

Shawty Bae (@shortybaeoffical), also known as Shorty Bae or by her real name Jasmine Orlando, is a TikToker and social media influencer who grew a cult following in the early 2020s, comprising mostly of women, LGBTQ+ and Latina TikTokers. Shawty Bae became known for her funny moments and TikTok Lives, as well as becoming associated with her disability of Bell's Palsy which generated a mostly wholesome fanbase that championed her confidence despite being disabled. Clips from her TikTok videos and TikTok Lives were used in various memes on the platform within FlopTok meme circles, centering on some of her catchphrases like "Oh my gatos," "I'm richness" and "I'm famousness," among others. In early 2023, her popularity spiked when seemingly chaotic videos of her meet-and-greets landed on social media.
