Vinnie Hacker lashes out at his fans for being “manipulative” and “controlling” after experiencing TikTok fame. He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”
TikTok fame is creating a star every day and people are also liking these young talents coming
in front and showcasing their talents.
Vinnie Hacker is one of them. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform,
as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, TikTok stardom has brought some problems
with it for the young guy. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.
“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.
“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”
“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”
He also said that once you get into the social media pool, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.
“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”
He has announced that he will be taking a break from Twitch also to focus more on his health and personal life.
“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
