Devyn used to have an account on the short-video-sharing app when it was still known as Musical.ly. However, her sister convinced her to delete it as she found it be “embarrassing”. After watching the videos she had posted there again recently, Devyn has stated that she agrees with the sentiment.
While she has mentioned that she started posting content on her TikTok account in January 2019, her current oldest post there dates back to March 29, 2019. Set to an original audio clip by fellow TikTok user ‘@drywaterrr’, the video is a duet with user ‘@_jackgerraughty_’. In the accompanying caption, she wrote, “I forgot the shoes. U had one job Dev…”.
She took a few months before starting to post more consistently on the platform. By the time summer arrived, the number of her followers was starting to grow, and she was becoming a popular content creator on the platform.
Devyn has been on the receiving end of some internet trolling. She has addressed this issue, admitting that it did not make her feel good about herself.
“… it sucks when they hate on you for something you can do differently… but you can change that,” she added, “when I got hate for my smile and how small my eyes get when I smile, that made me feel terrible about myself. I can’t change that.”
She has since learned to “move on” and largely disregard these types of comments.
