As Tinx, Christina Najjar is a popular American content creator and social media influencer. Her advice on dating and mental health has earned her the title of “Tikid’s older sister” since she began posting on the TikTok platform during the COVID-19 pandemic. She is well-known for her dating advice, celebrity musings, and “starter packs for rich moms” posts.
At an all-girls school in London, Tinx was educated for the majority of her life. In her early twenties, she packed up her things and moved to Stanford, California, to pursue a degree in English and creative writing. Her first job out of college was with Gap Inc.’s retail management training program. She went on to earn a master’s degree in fashion journalism from Parsons School of Design.
Tinx, Tiktok’s Star, Said She’s “horrified” Over Her 2020 Tweets Amid Controversy
Christina Najjar, better known as TikTok star Christina Najjar, has answered questions from fans about tweets she liked or interacted within 2020. Retweeting and liking Boris Johnson, Donald Trump, and COVID-19, Tinx was reported by Sophie Ross on April 22 under the Reddit r/tinxsnark thread.
Tinx wrote on Instagram Stories: “In 2020 I was in the same scared and wildly disruptive place we all were.” “Looking for some sort of relief or explanation on the internet, I found myself feeling confused, frustrated, depressed, and anxious at the same time. saying “I wasn’t thinking clearly” when liking those tweets isn’t a satisfying response, but it’s the truth.”
When she first started using Twitter, she was bombarded with political tweets that criticized Democrats and praised Trump. a retweet from one of her followers said, “The New York Times, lobbyists, and economists are just cultural totems for Democrats. As a result, they are easily swayed and deceived.” Likes for tweets praising the actions of politicians like Donald Trump continued in 2020.
During the same time, she responded to criticism of California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s handling of COVID-19 and questioned whether the pandemic was credible. “Whoever said one person couldn’t change the world never ate an undercooked bat,” read one retweet in support of the xenophobic claim that bats were to blame for the spread of COVID-19.
COVID-19’s origins are currently being investigated by ODN researchers, and animal-to-human transmission has been identified as a possible source, but in 2020, the unfounded bat narrative was widely used to promote anti-Asian rhetoric.
According to her IG Story, the 31-year-old appeared to allay fans’ fears about the tweet exchanges, saying, “Think about how a simple “like” or “re-tweet,” one unthinking click, could have contributed to the horrifying sentiment that also arose at the time and affected so many for good… I am horrified to think that my feelings and lack of purpose could have played a role in this at all.”
Before engaging in anything untrue…or worse, hurtful, I should have actually spent time researching it all,” she continued. Even if it wasn’t clear to you at the time.
It was previously reported that Tinx had been criticized for posting fatphobic tweets about celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan. “Kim Kardashian is so fat I don’t know what to do with myself #oops,” read one 2012 tweet.
On April 24, she posted an apology on Instagram for the tweets she made in 2012 “About ten years ago, I sent some truly heinous, spiteful, and heinous tweets into cyberspace.
Even though I had never met them, I labeled strangers as fat, pathetic, and ugly. It’s ironic, given how much I admire Kim Kardashian, that I even called her fat. I am ashamed and embarrassed when I read the tweets that were sent back to me. They’re cruel, and I’m not, either—but I used to be, once upon a time.”
A “lost” 21-year-old who was “deeply insecure” at the time, she went on to say she was “lost.”
In an attempt to lighten the mood for a few laughs, she donned a “mean tweeter” hat. “In any case, it’s not amusing. Only people who feel insecure are capable of putting themselves in harm’s way. If you’re feeling low, you’ll try to make someone else the target of a joke. In the end, being mean is just mean. I know that my words caused pain to others, and I apologize for that.”
