By now, the situation between TikTok creators Lance Tsosi (better known as Modern Warrior), Chelsea Hart, and Amanda Marie—in which Hart and Marie accused Tsosi of lying to them about his sexual partners in order to convince them to have unprotected sex—has been covered at-length. The controversy has been dubbed the “Womblands” saga, based on a misquoted phrase from one of Hart’s TikToks about Tsosi.
Hot takes and analysis on Womblands have amassed over 300 million views on the app last month alone. Subsequently, Womblands has had unintended consequences for various progressive sides of TikTok. What started as an apparent attempt at holding Tsosi, an Indigenous man, accountable for allegedly lying to Hart and Marie, quickly led to an attack on other Indigenous TikTokers who are unaffiliated with Tsosi.
