Overview

Sister Cindy or Cindy Smock is a Christian confrontational evangelist known for her eccentric appearances at college campuses where she spreads the word of the Bible, directly confronts students for being sinful and discourages promiscuity along with her husband, Brother Jed. Cindy has a large social media presence and is best known on TikTok, where she is largely a subject of mockery for the way she spreads her beliefs, including her perceived homophobic and slut shaming rhetoric and her catchphrase, "Be a ho no mo."

Online History

Sister Cindy is a roaming evangelist along with her husband, Brother Jed Smock. On her About page on brojed.com,[1] there is a story written by Jed about how the two met at the University of Florida. Jed called her out for being sinful, nicknaming her the "Disco Queen" and she eventually ended up joining his congregation and marrying him to teach the gospel. According to Cindy, she has been traveling to schools to preach the gospel for over 40 years, gaining a significant following of supporters, haters and people who ironically enjoy her.

On May 26th, 2007, YouTuber RetroColumbus posted three videos of Sister Cindy and Jed on Sally Jessy Raphael, garnering between 31,000 to 44,000 views in 14 years (shown below). The segment has Jed and Cindy criticize the practice of "de-baptism," where some people were revoking their baptisms after denouncing God.



Cindy started gaining viral acclaim on TikTok in March 2021. On March 2nd, 2021, a now-deleted video of her saying "it's time to do some good old fashioned slut shaming" started going viral on the platform, marking her first viral video (shown below).
