His profile, which was captured by a Twitter user, states that the influencer has identified himself as a woman on the dating platform.
The 22-year-old has been involved in several controversies since his rise to internet stardom. He has been called out for passing racist comments, feuding with Ariana Grande, the infamous Dramageddon 2.0 scandal and several grooming allegations that been raised against him since 2019.
