Did Elphaba from TikTok die?

No, Elphaba is not dead. Although she may no longer be on TikTok (we couldn’t find her TikTok), the former TikToker is still online Instagram and wrote in her stories: “I AM NOT DEAD” (via indy100).

The Instagram story continued, “I’m trying to heal and the people making this up are making me sick because people are fantasizing about it like it’s a trend.”

The rumors started after Elphaba posted pictures of herself in the hospital. There was some skepticism about this story. People thought the pictures might be fake because Elphaba has experienced some controversies in the past, particularly those involving lies. One of the more famous instances was when she said she did it Tourett syndrome.

Another major controversy involving Elphaba occurred when Jeffree Star accused her of “hitting” her. “Swatting” is a prank you play on someone when you call the police and pretend something really bad is happening in the hopes that their house will be surrounded by armed officers.

While Elphaba has denied having anything to do with the “slap,” it’s just another reason why people didn’t trust that she was in the hospital.

Elphaba actually followed up her original Instagram Story with a video taken from the hospital. The video states: “Please stop saying I’m pretending to be in the hospital and take this as a joke. Let me take a break, without lying, that’s all I’m showing you. You can say I do. “I’m trying to prove that I’m not okay, but people don’t even want to listen, and when I post that I died, I feel exhausted.”

Elphaba opens the video by saying, “I want to clear a few things up but I’m actually in the hospital and I can’t believe people are actually saying I’m dead and posting on social media that I faked going in to come to the hospital.”

On November 13, 2023, Elphaba took to Instagram again to announce that she was feeling better and that she was with her family, reaffirming that she was alive and healed.
