In the TikTok, @rovi_wade is wearing a spiked collar and a top with thin spaghetti straps. Although she is outside, it’s not clear whether she’s in a public place or in her private backyard. In a follow-up video, @rovi_wade revealed her full outfit was simply was a crop top and denim shorts.
“I’m allowed to exist and be hot,” she explains in the second video. “I’m going to continue to do so. I don’t know what she expects you to do.”
