Rumors about Mikayla Campinos’ death have spread like wildfire on the internet. Unfortunately, an explicit video of the TikTok influencer was uploaded on the internet without her permission, sparking rumors of her demise.
At the time of writing, it remained unknown who was behind the video release. It has also not been established that she died.
For those who are unfamiliar, Mikayla Campinos is a 16-year-old Instagram influencer with over 362K followers. She frequently publishes beauty and fashion content on her social media sites, which has led to her gaining over 3.2 million TikTok followers.
Recently, an explicit video of the Canada native which has now been called “Mikayla Campinos Pickles account” has gone viral on social media. How the video managed to make it online remains unknown. Certain netizens believe that an unidentified teenager uploaded it online.
VANITYlol, a YouTube channel with roughly 600 followers, posted a video titled The Mikayla Campinos Situation Is Sad. He posted a video with the following message:
“Anybody with a brain can see shes the victim here and as a 17 year old guy I couldn’t imagine having something like that out there for literally everyone to see. Its sad and sickening and things like this shouldn’t happen, especially to someone so young. Like seriously come on now, what did she do to deserve something so traumatic, I don’t get how people don’t see the problem here.”
As news of the video’s existence began circulating online, news publication HOLR claimed that the teenager had passed away. However, the same has not been proven.
No official sources have confirmed that Mikayla Campinos has passed away
Neither the internet personality’s family nor her management company have confirmed her death. Given her internet celebrity, it is likely that the latter would have issued an official announcement if she had died. Because no one has stated that she is deceased, one cannot assume that she is.
Campinos may be reducing her social media engagement as a result of the viral video. At the time of writing, netizens were also unable to comment on her Instagram images.
When a well-known person dies, it is critical to confirm the information via reputable sources such as their official social media accounts or trusted news publications.
Because neither has reported her death, it is safe to believe that Campinos is the victim of a social media death fake.
The TikToker is not the only one who has succumbed to the online craze. A number of other high-profile celebrities, including DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Jaden Smith, and Oprah Winfrey, have fallen prey to social media death hoaxes.
Netizens distribute misinformation solely for the purpose of gaining temporary clout, which leads to other internet users trusting the fake information if it is not verified from other sources.
Campinos fans are now waiting for a statement about the ongoing death rumors and video leak.
