A look at Olivia Dunne, the college gymnast with 6.7 million TikTok followers
Olivia Dunne, a gymnast at the Louisiana State University and a social media influencer, was at the center of a controversy last weekend that has forced LSU to increase their security measures. During a gymnastics meet between the LSU Tigers and Utah Utes, fans of Dunne nearly fell over one another chanting her name, carrying life-size cutouts of her, and holding handwritten signs reading “We Want Livvy,” making so much noise they disrupted the routines of other competing athletes.
Afterward, throngs of young men surrounding the arena’s entrance and exits waiting for Dunne forced LSU to move its bus so the team could board safety. The incident was called “unhinged” and “disturbing” by reporters and people in the gymnastics community.
Dunne is no average college athlete. She has more than 6.7 million followers on the social media platform TikTok and is one of the highest paid NCAA athletes.
