If you follow the chaotic lives of TikTokers, you might be familiar with the TikTok Room account on Instagram that shares influencer gossip. During the 2020 TikTok Room Awards, where people voted on various superlatives, Hacker was given the highest honor — “Best TikToker.” 

How old is Vinnie Hacker?

Hacker was born on July 14, 2002, in Seattle and is 18 years old. His mother was an emergency dispatcher and his father an electrician. He has one younger brother named Reggie and the pair both played competitive basketball and baseball at school.

His rumored girlfriend threatened to leave her job over online bullying.

In November, when Hacker’s followers speculated he might be dating fellow TikToker Faith Ordway, they bombarded her with cruel messages. Ordway even threatened to quit her job due to the bullying. 

The same thing happened again in December after Hacker commented on Samantha Riehl’s Instagram account — his fans berated her with negative messages. 

“I can’t believe people. I just can’t. can’t have friends, can’t talk to anyone, I’m MAJORLY disappointed in some people. I’m sick,” Hacker wrote on Twitter

He eventually apologized for the outburst. 

“I do apologize for the immaturity,” Hacker tweeted. “I was in the heat of the moment. after having the same thing happen to me twice I get defensive, which I shouldn’t have. I’d like to apologize. and yet you don’t have to accept that apology. Very immature.”
