Social Media Star
When Sheridan was cast on Chicken Girls, she only had around 500 followers on Instagram. She was also not associated with Tiktok at that time. However, she soon realized that she should increase followers on her social media.
“I had, like, 500 followers on Instagram, and TikTok wasn’t even a thing. A lot of the kids made it apparent they wouldn’t hang out with me because I didn’t have followers, and so what could knowing me do to help them? It was, like, a really lonely experience. And it was literally a wake-up call,” she recalls.
So, she started uploading more posts on Instagram and started following the trend. Later, she made a video on the trending TikTok trend named “sink.” She would be seen sitting on the counter and making her butt look bigger for the video.
Eventually, her sink video went viral, after which her followers increased to nearly 800,000. She later also got an invitation to participate in Playlist Live, an annual convention for content creators in Orlando, Florida, in February 2020.
At Playlist Live, she made a sink video with a Canadian TikTok star Josh Richards. As the video went viral, she says she got “depressed for, like, four months” after she started getting hate and sexist comments, unlike her male counterparts.
‘“Sissy gets passed around more than a blunt,”’ Sheridan shares some of the sexist and hateful comments she got. “‘She wants the whole crew.’” “‘I hope you get raped,’” Sheridan adds.
Sheridan rates TikTok as a “misogynistic platform,” but acknowledges that it benefited her.
TikTok is the most misogynistic platform ever,” she says. “You post a video shaking your butt, and all the boys say, ‘She’s a slut,’ but there’s a trend now where boys shake their butts, and all the boys are like”—bro voice—“‘Ha ha, he’s so funny! King!’”
As of July 2021, she has 5.5 million followers on her Twitter account, 1.1 million followers on her Instagram account, and 46.1k subscribers on her YouTube channel.
Even though Sheridan rose to fame on TikTok, the app also affected her negatively. According to Sheridan, people would frequently comment on her body. She shared on her Twitter post in May 2020 that she liked her body before she downloaded TikTok. She also turned off her comments status on TikTok due to massive negative comments. Later on 29 November 2020, she made a Twitter post stating that her TikTok comments functionality was off because of regular negative comments. She also shared that she was tired of seeing the hate.
As reported in Air Mail in April 2021, Sheridan dated a TikTok star Milessdespair, whom she met at the Playlist Live. Later, in a Twitter post dated 18 July 2021, Sheridan stated that she was single and asked the audience not to connect her to the “allegations” that she said were brought forward.
One fan commented, “Her ex-boyfriend was inappropriately snapping minors & she’s just clarifying that she has nothing do to with him anymore.”
Another fan added, “I’m so sorry you have to go through this. You have absolutely nothing to do with all this situation and it makes me really sad and mad some people don’t understand that. You are loved and appreciated, never forget that. Take care of yourself, ily so very much.”
