Kat Stickler and her husband Michael Stickler rose to fame as a couple making pranks and funny videos on TikTok during the pandemic. Their joint TikTok account, which is now under Kat’s name after their break up boasts close to six million followers.

Many fans of the couple were saddened to hear the news of their separation, and many even thought it was a prank the two were playing on their fans.

Now, the number of people thinking so has decreased drastically as both Mike and Kat have stuck to making solo content for months now. And amidst the aftermath of their high-profile break up, Kat shared with Distractify that she was open to new experiences.

Kat is Open To New Experiences

Aside from having to deal with her single life again, Kat had to deal with internet trolls among other problems. She opened up about the backlash she received because of her breakup announcement.

They feel like they own you because they made you. Especially now with announcing a breakup publicly, a lot of backlash for acting like I was happy. That kind of surprised me. Then I remember feeling for feeling happy...

Kat continued saying that people would always have something negative to say and that you just have to not let it make you feel bad.

Instead of focusing on the negative aspects, she is directing her attention to her daughter and self-care. She also expressed that she was open to new experiences, to grow and find her niche and build a community.

Finding Her Niche

Kat had previously explained that coming up with video ideas had gotten harder for her as she wanted a new theme.

While she hasn’t settled on what her new theme will be, she doesn’t want to shy away from her previous content as she loves making people laugh.

Kat embraced the change in her life post break up and is trying to show her audience that you can be funny on your own.

I feel like my page was really based on this wholesome marriage and now I guess I want to show, you know, you can be funny on your own. It can suck, but you can still find laughter.

She recently uploaded a clip on her Instagram and TikTok where she addressed going through a tough time because of the breakup.

She also put forth the message that it was 'ok to not be ok' and said she wanted to normalize showing your struggles.

TikTok Goes Viral After Separation

Just about two months from when they announced their split, which was in March 2021, Kat and Mike Stickler are going viral again. But not for their relationship this time around. This time, it's because of a TikTok video Katherine made in December 2020.

The video is a prank where Kat replaces her daughter MK with another baby and puts one of MK's bows on her. Then she secretly sets up a camera in their living room and hilarity unfolds from there.

Kat rolls the new baby on a stroller over to Mike, her husband at the time, and he is dumbfounded. After looking at the baby for just a while, he recognizes that she's not MK and starts panicking.

He starts asking questions about where MK is and if it was a prank. Finally, Kat gives in and admits it's a prank, proceeding to apologize multiple times for the mini heart attack she had just given him.
