APART from tricks, dancing clips and tutorials, TikTok has a darker side where stars murder, get shot and even die trying to smuggle illegal immigrants.
The most recent example is that of TikToker JinnKid, who was arrested in San Diego after being accused of allegedly shooting his wife and her companion.
The social media star whose real name is Ali Abulaban boasts over 940,000 followers on TikTok and he is best known for his impressions of Scarface, John Wick, the Godfather and more.
The 29-year-old is accused of shooting his wife Ana Abulaban, 28 and Rayburn Cardenas Barron, 29 in a high-rise apartment complex.
The incident occurred last week on October 21 and police said they found Ali later driving on the highway with his 5-year-old daughter.
Ali has denied all charges against him.
He is accused of installing a listening device on his daughter's iPad to be able to listen to conversations in the apartment.
Deputy District Attorney Taren Brast said that after the alleged incident, Ali went to pick up his daughter from school, with the loaded gun still in his car.
During his courtroom arraignment on October 25, prosecutors said his wife had allegedly filed a restraining order against him and was seeking a divorce.
If he is found guilty of the alleged murder of his wife, he faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.
It comes as last month popular TikToker Gabriel Salazar, best known for his lip-sync videos reportedly died in a police chase crash.
The 19-year-old who has over a 1.3million followers on TikTok, reportedly died while driving illegal immigrants across the Mexico border.
According to the Zavala County Sheriff’s Office Salazar was driving with three undocumented men in the vehicle.
Police said that during the chase Salazar lost control of the vehicle, hit several trees, rolled over and became engulfed in flames.
Passengers Jose Luis Jimenez-Mora, 41, Jose Molina-Lara, 23, and Sergio Espinoza-Flores, 36 also died in the crash.
Another young TikTok star passed away after being allegedly shot in a movie theatre.
Anthony Barajas,19, was shot while on his first date with Rylee Goodrich, 18 at a screening of The Forever Purge on July 26.
Goodrich died at the scene at the Regal Edwards Corona Crossings, California, while Barajas was taken to hospital but passed away days later.
The alleged gunman Joseph Jimenez, 20, was charged with murder and attempted murder.
Last month he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and claimed he could hear voices in his head telling him to kill the two teens.
He added that he was diagnosed with schizophrenia but admitted he has not been taking his pills as they had "ran out" and he "didn't get it refilled."
He is being held without bail.
Back in July a famous TikTok dancer, Swavy died from a gunshot wound.
The star whose real name was Matima Miller boasted around 98million likes on social media.
The TikToker who was also known as Babyface.S was shot in Wilmington, Delaware.
He was rushed to the hospital but could not be saved.
