📱 TikTok Live’s Enigmatic Rising Star

CREATOR ECONOMY NEWSLETTER


There’s one TikTok creator who has been creeping their way onto my feeds: Itzpsyiconic. It’s a welcome presence, as clips from his TikTok Live streams always crack me up. 

The creator, whose real name is Kelon, amassed a sizable following with his cast of characters: the evangelical Christian southern belle Terri Joe, the goth Amethyst, and the BBL baddie Jeorgia Peach. Over the past year, Kelon has made a niche for himself baiting unwitting collaborators and going toe-to-toe with fellow trolls—including famous ones—on TikTok Live. From Twitter memes to viral TikToks, itzpsyiconic has become a staple in online culture, gifting us with iconic (no pun intended) one-liners, perfect reaction images, and, as Passionfruit contributor Kaiya Shunyata writes, unbridled queer joy. In their analysis of itzpsyiconic’s content, Shunyata explores why viewers love the creator and what makes him stand out in the TikTok landscape.
