Karpelman’s Content Is Relatable And Funny
Karpelman, 59, posted her first video to TikTok in June 2020 at the height of the pandemic. Her videos started out as simple, yet relatable to so many and focused on all the insanity the pandemic was bringing into our lives. She seemed to grab the attention of many scrolling through their FYP feed as people commented on her videos with, “I’m gonna be you when I grow up. I just know it,” “you are literally the funniest person ever,” “You are my whole mood! I love your content and thank you for speaking about serious issues like depression, it makes me feel not alone,” among many others.
Her relatable content has helped to grow her page and pull in fans from all generations. Many of her videos revolve around shopping and malls. In one video, she talks about how to escape the kiosk salespeople in the mall.
