TikTok star Siya Kakkar died on Wednesday after reportedly taking her own life. She was 16.

The teenager from India was best known for her dance videos on TikTok. She had more than 1.1 million followers on the social media site that is wildly popular with teens and young adults.

Siya's passing was confirmed by her manager Arjun Sarin, who had spoken to her the day before she was found dead in her home in East Delhi, India.

"This must be due to something personal... work wise she was doing well," he said. "I had a word with her last night for a new project and she sounded normal."

According to sources cited by London's Daily Mail Online, Siya had received "threats" on the Internet prior to her death.

Photographer Viral Bhayani also mourned Kakkar's death on Instagram, writing: "Sad news 16-year-old sweet tik-toker @siya_kakkar died by suicide.

"Before publishing this I spoke to her Talent management agency head Arjun Sarin who just spoke to her last night for a song collaboration and he says she was in a good mood and perfectly alright. Even he has no clue what went wrong that she had to go this way. You go through her videos and you can she was so good in her content, it's really sad that she chose this path. If you are feeling depressed please dont do this (sic)."

Pop singer/rapper Lizzo shared a powerful TikTok video clip blasting all those who criticize her for her looks and her body size.

"Hey, so I've been working out consistently for the last 5 years and it may come as a surprise to some of y'all that I'm not working out to have your ideal body type," she says over videos that show her working out intensely.

"I'm working out to have my ideal body type and you know what type that is? None of your f**king business! Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job, and I stay on my job," she said.

Lizzo went on to curse out each and every hater who don't look in the mirror before they criticize others.

"So next time you want to come to somebody and judge them, whether they drink kale smoothies or eat McDonald's or workout or not workout, how about you look at your own f**king self and worry about your own goddamn body because health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside, health is also what happens on the inside. And a lot of y'all need to do a f**king cleanse for your insides. Namaste, have a great day."

Lizzo has been mocked and teased relentlessly on social media for not having a slim, curvy body like other singers in her field.

The 32-year-old star admitted she's depressed and sometimes cries herself to sleep due to the excessive bullying. She has considered deleting her social media accounts, but the draw to social media is too powerful to let go.

In her hit song "Truth Hurts," Lizzo said "why food great 'til I gotta lose weight." The singer has ramped up her exercise and dieting routines - but not to appease others. To inspire others to eat healthy and workout so they can live long, healthy lives.

Reginae Carter unloaded on her elder, NeNe Leakes, while on quarantine on TikTok Monday.

It isn't clear what set her off. Reginae, who turns 22 in November, told 52-year-old NeNe she is depositing Trump checks. "You are the one who is losing houses and cars sweetheart... I don't need to take money from anybody. I am very rich bitch!"

It is out of character for Reginae to be disrespectful to her elders. She is always respectful and sweet to your auntie. NeNe must have really said something to irk her nerves.

In other news, Reginae says her father, rapper Lil Wayne, doesn't mind her bearing skin in Fenty lingerie -- but her mother, Antonia "Toya" Johnson, does.

Reginae made headlines when she was picked to be the face of Rihanna's Fenty lingerie line in January.

Even though she's 21, Reginae told Page Six that her parents had opposing views to her modeling sexy lingerie in public campaigns.

"When I first posted my mom was like, 'Okay, don't get too lively with the lingerie,'" Reginae said.

Reginae, who is the product of teenage parents, said, "My daddy never really mentioned it. I don't know what he thinks about it, but my mom is like, 'Right now, don't take no more clothes off.'"

The reality TV personality who grew up under the watchful eyes of aunties Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 44, and Monica Arnold, 39, says her mother wants her to be respectful and exercise some decorum.

But Fenty line owner Rihanna is not so respectful.

"When I first started out I wasn't really the type to show thongs [and be] sexy and stuff. When I was picking out my options, I was trying to get PJs — but Rihanna's team was like, 'No, send her sexy.'"

A nurse who works at a New York hospital treating coronavirus patients took to YouTube to blow the whistle on "negligent doctors” who she says are "literally murdering" Black people.

According to the CDC, Black people account for 30% of deaths attributed to the virus. New York state has the highest rate of Covid-19 deaths at 19,000+.

But one nurse claims Black people are not dying from Covid-19 -- they are being "murdered" by "negligent" doctors.

Nicole Sirotek, an ICU nurse from Nevada who traveled to NYC to help out on the frontlines, posted a YouTube video describing the "gross negligence and mismanagement" that results in deaths of minority patients daily.

"Nobody cares because they're all minorities," Sirotek said in a video. She said she was once assigned to care for a patient who was already in a body bag.

"They're not dying of Covid. Yes, people are going to die of Covid, I know this, I'm not a new grad student. I am literally saying they're murdering these people. And nobody cares because they're all minorities and we're in the f**king hood and that's not okay."

While nurses are being honored during Nurses Week 2020, which begins on May 6 and ends on May 12, other nurses have come under attack on social media for posting thousands of TikTok videos of themselves dancing and twerking while on duty.

Twitter deleted many of the disgraceful videos that show just how narcissistic the nursing profession has become.
