Whenever we post anything about Kylie Jenner or the wider Kardashian family, the general response is usually incredibly divided. Either people don't seem to care at all, or people really care.
Over the past few years, Kylie Jenner has been pretty quiet on social media – a rarity for the reality TV family – only sharing a few updates throughout the course of the year. Plenty of them have been business-related, such as the announcement of Kylie Baby, Kylie Swim, and new collections for Kylie Cosmetics.
In November, Kylie attended Travis Scott's performance at Astroworld, which resulted in a tragedy with ten members of the audience dead as a result of poor health and safety, overcrowding, and Scott's culture of "raging." Following the event, Kylie has been incredibly quiet online, only taking to IG stories to share a message in Scott's defense. She's rightfully been laying low since, after being called out for posting a video of the performance where the ambulance making its way through the crowd is visible.
When it comes to Kylie, she tends to generally lay low. She's rarely taking a stand, engaging in debate, or showing herself as vulnerable. Each of her media appearances has been pre-recorded, and she rarely participates in live interviews or episodes of KUWTK.
Despite her calculated social media presence, TikTok thinks Kylie has had her baby.
The internet will always find things out before an announcement has come out, and if we're judging by her second pregnancy, TikTok investigators have been right. Somehow, they knew even before Kylie shared anything about it herself, and they decided to break it to the world. It spread like wildfire, of course.
Plenty of videos have been created during the past few weeks, picking a part Kylie's stories after her return to IG. Evidence includes a baby bottle, Stormi wearing a mask inside, Kim and Pete Davidson being a distraction, nails, and more. It all sounds a little unhinged, and after spending a few minutes on the #KylieJenner tag, it kind of is.
Whether it is true or not, the couple will without a doubt be laying low, as Travis Scott is still fighting plenty of lawsuits following Astroworld, and has been dropped from headlining Coachella as well as other festivals this year.
And whether you care or not, one thing is for sure: TikTok certainly does. For some reason, the social media app has become obsessed with creating videos picking apart people's lives – famous or not – with a sense of entitlement and no regard for privacy or fake news.
Of course, Jenner has shared so much of her life online and on television, which means many of us to expect her to share everything with us. She's a friend, she's relatable! That's been the danger of social media, and it makes a lot of sense why very public people need their privacy, and fight so hard to get it.
The celebrity obsession on Tiktok, as well as on Twitter and Instagram, is exhausting. Tabloids may have disappeared from the spotlight, but the damage is still being done on social media.
So, can we just let Kylie have her baby in peace? And stop flying helicopters over her house, while we're at it.
