    TikToker Jake “Octopusslover8” Shane Shares How Amassing Millions of Followers Impacted His Mental Health – E! Online


    Jake “Octopusslover8” Shane is getting serious.

    The TikToker, who is known for his comedy videos and collaborations with celebrities such as Nick JonasAlix Earle and Sofia Richie, recently revealed the impact his newfound social media fame has had on his mental health.

    “I was loving it. When it happens, at first, you’re not thinking, All right, well, I’m going to be a TikTok star now. You just think it’s fun. You don’t think anything is going to happen,” Jake told GQ in an interview published April 20. “So I started posting on TikTok 10 to 20 times a day, anything I could think of. I would just grab my phone, be like, “dududu, post” and put it down.”

    However, as his following grew, so did his mental health struggles.

    “I wouldn’t do a caption half the time because I have really, really bad anxiety and really bad OCD, so creating captions is sometimes hard for me. It really triggers part of me,” he continued. “So I decided to not have captions and people can do what they will with it. Slowly, slowly, slowly, it started climbing.”
