‘I was really annoyed that corona was getting more publicity than me’
TIKTOK star and influencer Ava Louise went viral after posting a video of herself licking an airplane toilet seat for her “coronavirus challenge”.
In the six-second clip, the 21-year-old is seen licking an airplane toilet seat with the words “coronavirus challenge” plastered over the video. But things didn’t end there for Louise.
During an interview with TV therapist Dr Phil, the TikTok star defended her actions.
“I was … really annoyed that corona was getting more publicity than me. One, I had way dirtier things in my mouth. Two, I bleached (the toilet). Three, private plane. I flew down on my sugar daddy’s plane with my best friend. So really, it wasn’t that dirty. I wasn’t putting myself or anyone else at risk.”
Dr Phil confronted Louise about lying to her followers. She replied: “That’s what the media is doing … with this entire virus. It’s funny because I created the fake news myself. I basically took things that your generation and boomers are scared of and I capitalised off of it.”
