In April, Nancy Kimball, a 23-year-old actress, was called out on TikTok for “impersonating” a minor on the account @antialice. 

Kimball had disclosed to a childhood friend, Rae, that she was working on an acting project that involved TikTok. She hadn’t given details to her friend, as she says she’d signed an NDA, but soon after, the friend found the @antialice TikTok account. Recognizing Kimball, who was acting as a 17-year-old, the friend raised some red flags in a viral video that reached 1 million views, sparking a brief but messy controversy.
