Obtaining a large following on social media is usually preceded by bold statements or acts that achieve viral status, and for one TikToker, it is her time of the month.
But for Nadya Okamoto, who already has 3.3 million followers on TikTok, her latest stunt is reserved for those with large followings -pitching a product.
Okamoto has gone viral for putting her brand of sustainable period care products on display while at a music festival.
“When someone says, quote on quote, having class means having stylish excellence and I don’t know about ya’ll but I feell like this is stylish excellence,” in her TikTok post, which features her dancing with a sanitary towel stuffed into her underwear.
“Like having your period is the ultimate statement of I can be stylish and glamourous and sexy and yes, be on my period,” she said.
“Like over half the global population will menstruate and menstruators are some of the most classy beautiful, stylish people you will ever meet,” she added.
Using her TikTok to build awareness for her brand has also given her a voice for women to discuss the stigma associated with menstruation, but for some, her choice of how to display the product is just too much.
“I wore my pad out in public, what’s the big deal,” she said in another post.
“Society has taught us that menstruation is something we need to pretend does not exist,” she said.
“I don’t see nothing wrong with periods and stuff and like all the stuff u show cause everything is normal but girl…this is to far,” a TikTok user said.
“I get what you’re trying to prove but it’s too much,” another user said. “It’s respect…for you and for the people around you.”
