Many of the most popular influencers started on TikTok. 

The video-sharing app and its vast user base have allowed stars like Dixie D’Amelio and Bella Poarch to bridge the gap between influencer and pop star.

Over the past couple of years, these popular TikTokers have been increasingly making efforts to develop a music career. 

However, this trend has not been entirely welcomed by many.

Many of these aspiring pop stars have faced backlash, and the recent victim is Brooklynne Webb, who goes by “xobrooklynne” on TikTok. 

Brooklynne Webb’s Singing Controversy

Webb, who was one of the most popular POV (point of view) TikToker at one point, currently has over 10 million followers at the tender age of 16.

Viewers might have seen her as a queen, a princess, a lost twin, and so many other characters. 

Since achieving fame on the app, the TikToker is attempting to launch her music career. 

On November 28, Webb uploaded a TikTok of her singing to Taylor Swift’s ‘All Too Well.’ In post-production, her singing had not been altered, and her real voice could be heard on the track.

In the caption, she wrote that she worked hard on her music and would share it soon. 

Unfortunately for Webb, users on the app criticized her instead of being supportive.

One user wrote, “you dropped you mic queen, please leave it there,” while another noted that her cover was “just plain disrespect towards Taylor Swift.”

Many of the comments were of that nature, with users stating that Webb’s singing was terrible.

Webb even replied to some comments, saying her singing was not a joke and was one of her biggest passions. 

Fellow TikToker Noah Glenn Carter also covered her singing controversy. But unlike the comment section on Webb’s video, users left kind and more supportive comments on Carter’s video.

They iterated that people on the app are too insensitive and that Webb should be left alone. 

Who is Brooklynne Webb?

While Webb’s singing might not have impressed the audiences, she once inspired thousands of young girls to celebrate body positivity

Last year, Webb posted a video to TikTok of herself pulling down the waistband of her leggings to show off her relaxed belly. She was part of a TikTok chain started by user @lizzykhang.

The trend went viral on the app as empowered women embraced their natural bodies. 

Despite Webb’s positivity, the trolls commented that Webb needed to lose weight. Naturally, her feelings were hurt, but instead of wallowing in self-pity, she rebelled and started posting more videos of her dancing with her belly showing. 

Webb was commended for her bravery and spreading positivity on the app. Her follower count skyrocketed as she made headlines. But of course, like every TikToker, she has also been embroiled in her fair share of drama. 

Webb was caught telling Trump supporters to “kill themselves.’ which resulted in backlash. However, she apologized and has since moved on from the controversy.
