“I’ve never really enjoyed social media,” said Khalifa in an interview with Mashable. Before TikTok, she made a point to treat social media like her job and only followed friends and what she was interested in — and muted everyone else. Up until this week, she had her Instagram comments turned off.

“It was awful,” she said of the Instagram hate. “It affected me, even if I put a brave face forward to the public.” She said internet vitriol affected her relationship with her husband as well. She believes TikTok is not that filled with hatred.
“As soon as I joined TikTok I found this whole new world where I can read the comments, and not feel like I should have them turned off,” said Khalifa, “and want to engage with the people commenting… they feel like my friends.”
