Fellow TikToker At Rescue

After receiving a huge backlash, fellow TikToker Melissa Tovar, has come to Mikayla Nogueira’s rescue. She defended Nogueira that she was just 23-year-old at that time and was yet to be a full-time influencer.

The discourse shifted towards users willing to subscribe to only those stars who bear a relatability to them. Some section of viewers would like to follow influencers who also juggle 9 to 5 like them.
