Among other things, social media are known for their ability to promote global networking and to draw attention to social issues that traditional media were not quite capable of doing. Technology has also been credited with helping several personalities achieve a career, including Timmy Thick, a young man who came to the fore in 2016 after posting a series of selfies on Instagram and Twitter.
Like everyone who has achieved fame in social media, Timmy Dick has experienced some controversial moments, particularly his claim that his presence in social media was a sociological experiment at Harvard University. Here is a complete breakdown of Timmy Dick’s personality and the validity of his claims.
Who is Timmy Thick?
Although 2016 appeared on social media, some biological details about Timmy Thick are still elusive. We do know, however, that he was born in New York on August 21, 1999. Widespread speculation suggests that his real name is Justin, but the sensation in social media has officially confirmed nothing.
According to the little evidence he has provided since he entered the spotlight, Timmy had a difficult time growing up, precisely because of the physical and verbal harassment he had to endure from people. The bullying was a consequence of his body, which is more female than male.
How Did He Become Popular?
In 2016 Timmy Thick met a man from New Jersey. The two quickly forged a relationship based on their shared experience of bullying because of its feminine nature. Inspired by Timmy’s trust, the anonymous guy came up with the idea of creating a social media account where he could express himself.
They first created an Instagram account, @TimmytheBarbie, in 2016. With each contribution of a picture or a selfy that showed his curvy figure, including his thighs and bottom, Timmy Dick’s popularity grew. A year after creating the Instagram account, he set up a Twitter account, @timmythick, which has since grown to over 34 thousand followers.
While his online content focuses on his pictures and videos, he is also known for celebrating other celebrities like Nicki Minaj and Kylie Jenner. But beyond his body image posts, Timmy has also gained popularity through other controversies.
Controversies Surrounding His Social Media Usage
While Timmy’s existence as a young man with a body typically associated with women is the main cause of disagreement about him, he has become more controversial over the years due to a number of his other actions.
One of these was in 2019 when, after a pause in social media the year before, he returned in December and released a video of himself rapping a song using the N-word, an ethnic slur that is used to describe black people. As expected, the video promptly received a certain backlash.
Apart from that, Timmy caused even more controversy with his Harvard commentary. In a tweet on March 17, 2018, the social media star published the claim that his social media personality was a sociological study by Harvard University. This proved to be false, as confirmed by a Harvard professor of sociology, Jason Beckfield, who said the school had not commissioned such a study. However, it cannot be denied that Timmy Thick’s existence in social media contained much information about gender expectations and tolerance levels.
What Has Timmy Think Been up to in Recent Time?
After Timmy Thick claimed to be a Harvard experiment, he disappeared from social media and deleted all his contributions. Many of his fans, but also casual observers of him, wondered if this was it for the social media star. As it turned out, however, the Internet phenomenon later returned to the world that made him famous. He runs a private Instagram site, @timmythickish, and a public site, @timmythick, on Twitter. On both sites, Timmy continues to live the life that made him a celebrity in the digital world.
Other Things You Should Know
Apart from his online antics, Timmy is like any other normal kid. He loves to spend time with his friends and hang out whenever he can. Many of his fans believe that his most attractive feature is his lips. They have also encouraged him to think about becoming a lipstick model.
Apart from his Twitter presence, Timmy also has a YouTube channel. The self-titled channel doesn’t share the popularity of his Twitter page, but he has posted a few videos since its inception in 2018.
The social media star is an avowed dog lover. Moreover, like any other person of his age, he has fantasies about his ideal woman. For Timmy, his perfect wife would be Nicki Minaj – or at least any other woman who comes in the same shape.
