TikTok is a tool to share life events, own experiences and thoughts in general. In addition, it has millions of content creators who are dedicated to showing their lives every day, so there is nothing to be surprised.
However, in recent days, a video uploaded by a user identified as Jessica Ayers (@thesingingwidow) went viral on the platform in which she recounts the tragic death of her husband, but the murky thing is that she is dancing to the trending song I Made You Look by Meghan Trainor as she narrates the story.
Eight years ago, a man shot and killed my husband, I was three days postpartum. 11 months later, the man was convicted of manslaughter, on the day of his sentencing, I gave him a speech, told him our love story and even told him if he started to feel sorry for him, remember my face. It continues to be one of the proudest moments in my life.
That was what Jessica told while dancing very happily, which confused many and caused thousands of criticisms. The truth is that we have to be consistent in our actions, because although it has been a long time ago, this was not the best way to tell something so serious.
The clip went viral and attracted thousands of reactions and critical comments, as they say that it is disrespectful and that it is incredible what the woman did to have visits on her profile.
Given the audience’s response, Jessica deleted the recording, but later made another where she responded to her detractors. In this second video, the woman explains that it took her a lot of therapy and time to overcome that event in her life and that she is now remarried and happy, so she sees nothing wrong with dancing.

Although the official video was removed, some Twitter users shared it, so it also received pure negative comments on this network. There were those who claimed that this was narcissistic and strange behavior, although she says that it is her way of dealing with all the bad things she has experienced.
Users are upset that she bases her personality on having a deceased husband and they resent the fact that even her username @thesingingwidow translates to “The Singing Widow” when she is already married again, wouldn’t that be? disrespectful to your new husband?
But the story doesn’t end there, as Jessica even has an internet blog where she tells her story and sells “Lost Loved Ones” themed merchandise, which makes it even weirder.
In addition, he has a YouTube channel and an Instagram account with the same username and tells the same story, so it is suspected that he only seeks to profit from the misfortune that he had to experience.
