IT’S NOT every day that a state senator goes viral on TikTok for twerking.
However, that is exactly what the Democratic Representative of Rhode Island for District 6, Senator Tiara Mack, did on July 4, 2022.
Why is Tiara Mack trending on Tiktok?
The state senator from Rhode Island took a rather unconventional approach to getting traffic to her TikTok page, with a video of her in a bikini on the beach twerking in a headstand.
After showing off her moves, the Brown University graduate looked into the camera and said, “Vote Senator Mack!”
The caption read “Senator’s Promised Thirst Trap on Block Island,” with a smiling devil face emoji.
As with any controversial video posted on TikTok, the comments section has gone wild.
Users from across Rhode Island and the rest of the world have flocked to her profile to comment on the first-ever twerking by a black, openly LGBTQ state senator.
Senator Mack has 8,880 followers on TikTok under her username mackdistrict6.
What did the comments say about Tiara Mack’s twerking video?
There were comments full of support, anger and confusion.
Some of the comments were harsh enough to prompt Senator Mack to respond via video.
A user named Mile Hi Meat Co commented: “Say what you want about whether repub/dem endorses this content or not. It just doesn’t get you elected.”
Mack responded to this in a video with a screenshot of the person’s comment overlaid on their response.
Mack responded by correcting the person and doubling their video.
“I think the word you wanted to use was ‘re-elected,'” she said. “And it probably will, because my constituents love that I’m a real person and I’m fun, and you know, not a robot.”
However, for so much criticism she received for her twerking video, Sen. Mack also received heaps of love.
Countless overseas users have expressed that they wish they lived in Rhode Island so they could vote for them.
Other users, like Letisya Isler, commented on their support from across the aisle.
“I’m a Republican and I loved your video. She’s having fun and we need more young senators who are ACTUAL people and not robots. She’s a queen,” Isler wrote.
User Cris-No-H said in a later comment: “I love that you didn’t take it down! I live in GA but I just donated to your reelection campaign!”
What other content does Tiara Mack share on her TikTok?
Sen. Mack has only been on TikTok since June 27, 2022, but so far she has shared tons of resources and information for people who want to get involved, especially on hot issues, especially abortion rights.
For example, following the Supreme Court decision, Roe v. to overthrow Wade, a video titled “Should You Donate to an Abortion Fund or a Politician?”
As a former youth organization specialist on Planned Parenthood in southern New England, she is committed to continuing to publish abortion rights resources.
She also shares information about Rhode Island politics, such as a video that answers the question, “How to vote in Rhode Island?” and encourages others in her state and other local governments to apply for official positions .
