Influencers over the age of 30 are warned to ‘stay off TikTok’ because they’re TOO OLD and the users are ‘absolutely brutal’
Notorious Instagram ‘snark’ account Celeb Spellcheck has warned influencers over the age of 30 to stay off TikTok.
Celeb Spellcheck’s anonymous admin, a PR worker in her late twenties, was asked to name the ‘cringiest Aussie influencers’ during an Instagram Q&A on Wednesday.
‘I would say it’s all the thirtysomething old-school influencers who got lucky with an Instagram following years ago but bring absolutely nothing to the table trying to make it on TikTok,’ she responded.

‘TikTok is a whole new ball game. You need something to offer and a pretty face doesn’t cut it. Plus it’s absolutely brutal,’ Celeb Spellcheck added.
The hugely popular account was created several years ago with the intention of mocking celebrities for making typos in sponsored Instagram posts.
However, the page had since transformed into a platform for holding influencers to account for their lies and irresponsible behaviour.

Celeb Spellcheck is also a hub for user-submitted gossip.
The account has attracted criticism in the past, with the likes of Skye Wheatley and Tayla Damir accusing the page of ‘bullying’ them by correcting their spelling.
Laura Byrne once said Celeb Spellcheck’s exponential growth had resulted in the account’s anonymous administrator losing her moral compass.

- a woman in her late twenties (she turned 28 in December 2020)
- works in public relations
- hails from the Mornington Peninsula but now lives in Melbourne’s south-east

She claimed the account was ‘push[ing] the boundaries’ and even venturing into ‘criminal’ territory.
The admin has denied bullying the influencers she features, saying: ‘This page is meant to be lighthearted and fun. I have definitely posted things in the past that I’m not proud of, but I do try to never cross the line.’
The page’s administrator previously revealed she is a Melbourne woman in her late twenties.
