If you are active on TikTok, you’ve possibly seen a hilarious young Irish woman dressed as a nun with white hair in space buns pop up on your feed.
Does this sound familiar? She is Ruth Codd, a make-up artist and barber who uses her account to vent about religion, fashion, and diversity.
Codd had gained an enormous fan following, over half a million followers almost overnight, but she insisted she wasn’t famous and hated being called an influencer. Instead, she used her significant online presence to share her story and witty humor.
With her enigmatic style and classic Irish humor, the 24-year-old Wexford native had amassed over 610,000 followers on the video-sharing app TikTok by using her platform to raise disability awareness.
But around November 2021, she deleted all her videos from her social media, and her fans are showing concerns. Read along to know in depth.
Ruth Codd deleted all her videos from TikTok
After Codd deleted all her TikTok videos, many of her fans and followers were concerned about the young TikToker. They took it to their personal social media to share their concern.
A fan tweeted, “Ruth Codd’s TikTok has been deleted and all of her socials. Why? And how am I supposed to get my daily laughs?”
Similarly, one of her followers took to TikTok and made a video about her concern about Codd’s deleted TikTos, tagging the influencer.
Codd later replied to the video, sharing she just wanted to step away and take some time for herself.
She commented, “Guys, I’m A-ok. Thank you for your concern. My health wasn’t great, so I just decided to step away from social media for now. Love you all.”
“I’m so sorry I didn’t mean to worry anyone. I genuinely didn’t think anyone would notice I was gone,” she added.
Ruth Codd is an amputee
Codd is an amputee, and she shared her journey and stories on her TikTok account, educating people and spreading awareness related to disabilities through her comic videos.
In an interview with Hunger, she mentioned that TikTok unintentionally became an educational app for her.
She further said, “People explore many bad experiences through humor. I suppose I’ve got quite a dark sense of humor, but it shows people that it’s normal to talk about.”
She said that her account was not just about her amputation but also her personality. She shared, “My amputation is a little part of me, but I still have other things going on. My channel isn’t just me saying, ‘hi, I have one leg’. It’s about other aspects of my life too.”
Ruth Codd will appear in a Netflix horror series
From a famous TikTok star to an actor, Codd has had quite a journey. The make-up artist can soon be seen in a Netflix horror series, The Midnight Club, set to be released on October 7, 2022.
She has even mentioned the date on her Instagram bio, so it is confirmed we can see her in the series.
The Midnight Club is a teen-horror series coming to Netflix from The Haunting creator Mike Flanagan. Based on Christopher Pike’s best-selling novel, the Midnight Club will be Flanagan’s fifth Netflix Original series.
