There's A New TikTok Trend Surrounding A Girl In A Harvard Sweatshirt And Her Backstory Is A LOT

Her name is Danielle Cohn.

This is Danielle Cohn:

She's an internet-famous teen I likely would have never known existed if I hadn't come across this extremely popular TikTok:

You're probably thinking, "What's so special about a teen dancing in her room?" I thought the same, until I did a quick little Google search.

It turns out Cohn is pretty controversial. She got famous on Musical.ly a few years ago, and remained popular after the lip-syncing app became TikTok. Cohn has received a lot of public criticism for dressing, dancing, and acting "inappropriate" for her age.

Your next question is probably, "How old is she?" Unfortunately, the best answer I can give you is either 13 or 15. That's because while she and her mother claim she's 15, her dad released a statement on Facebook saying she's 13.

Danielle Cohn and her mother Jen have both said her father is lying.

That wasn't the only controversy she had this year. In April she got a lot of heat for falsely leading people to believe she married her 16-year-old boyfriend, Mikey Tua, in Las Vegas. A YouTube video she posted shows her and Tua at a wedding ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator.

Cohn's mother, Jennifer, told BuzzFeed News that they did not get legally married.

Cohn and Tua also sparked a pregnancy rumor after she posted a photo (that's since been deleted) of him kissing her stomach on Instagram. Tua tweeted “Expecting 08/14/19 #manibaby” and Cohn tweeted the same date:

Tua uploaded a YouTube video of the couple breaking the news to their friends and families.

Cohn's mom Jen has not responded to BuzzFeed's inquiries about whether or not she's actually pregnant.

So now that everyone's all caught up...back to the Harvard sweatshirt video!

I can't tell you why out of millions of videos of people dancing on TikTok, users chose Cohn's to riff on. But I am EXTREMELY glad they did. Behold...a TikTok role-playing masterpiece!
