A mysterious TikTok account that goes by the name Peachy Bella, or peachy.bellaaa, has been liking certain users’ every comment. It’s so ominous, people are starting to form conspiracy theories about it.
The account has more than 500,000 TikTok followers and, according to this Reddit thread, has been at it since at least July — until Nov. 10, when she disappeared.
User @itsacrello explained the situation in a viral video.
He said that users have noticed that over the past few months, this account will like their comments within seconds of them being posted, no matter what the video — some even noticed it on their unlisted content.
He shared two possible theories about Peachy Bella’s true identity.
The first is that it may be a catfish account using fake photos and a “comment-liker bot” to put itself on more users’ radars to get more followers and make more money. Itsacrello pointed out that her videos are always pixelated, which makes the user’s identity seem suspicious.
His second theory is that Peachy Bella is a real person, but she’s using that same bot to get more followers across her social media channels.
Commenters responded to the video, saying things like “I thought it was only me” and “she has liked over 100 of my comments.”
Twitter users also expressed their concern about the unusual user.
“I can’t believe there’s a whole conspiracy on this Peachy Bella girl,” one said. “I thought I was the only one whose comments kept getting liked by her, this has been happening for months!”
For now, the Peachy Bella account TikTok seems to be gone — possibly because users reported its allegedly spammy behavior. What appears to be her Instagram account still remains.
Time will tell if Peachy Bella, or other accounts like her, pop up again.
