Good. This woman will need to put together a better defense before going to court!
If you haven’t heard, a TikTok named star Kylie Strickland was arrested this week after a video she put on the app went viral for all the wrong reasons. The clip was recorded during a pool party at a house in Georgia; in which, despite the presence of children, one can see the 30-year-old squirming her breasts in front of the camera – which puts her in a real hot water!
Quite a few of her 250k followers – and we expect others who accidentally saw the video – were shocked and outraged, calling it child abuse, grooming, etc. “computer or electronic pornography and child exploitation.”
These are serious charges – a felony in Georgia – that could land her in jail for 20 years! That’s what Josh Duggar was facing for possession of actual child pornography, “the worst of the worst.” Is this really in that ballpark?

We’ve seen quite a few people online defending Kylie. Some have pointed out that there are nudist events in the presence of children and that breastfeeding in public is legal in most places. Is just going topless as a woman considered sex? Is this different in some way? Rub, Pike . County Sheriff’s Department said in their statement that she exposed herself “in a provocative manner.” She’s definitely flashing in the video and there’s no doubt she was meant to be “provocative”. But the real issue, considering the allegations, is a video showing her breasts online, in an audio recording featuring children. That’s the part that got her in trouble.
So what is Kylie’s reaction to all of this? Well, it’s not great.
She made her Tiktok and Instagram privately, but in live videos taken by viewers, one can see her settling the controversy. And she doesn’t downplay the incident by any of #FreeTheNipple’s arguments or by denying the “provocative” nature of the brief nudity. No, from what we’ve seen so far, she’s mostly minimizing the kids’ assumed innocence!
In one video, she claims the kids were “taking tequila shots” before she got there and added:
“Those boys have seen more breasts than I have ever seen in my entire life.”
Um… what?? She continued:
“I have no responsibility to parent someone else’s child if the parent is there. Those kids go mud skiing.”
MUD RIDES! Okay…
Another video shows the alleged text messages between Kylie and the boys’ father in question. He said someone called him to make sure he and the mother weren’t mad “about you showing them your boobs.” He wrote:
“I told them no, I don’t. I’m proud of them, so you’re cool to me. “
“I don’t think you care, but just wanted to make sure. Probably shouldn’t do that. [Redacted] so it’s my fault, but I just wanted to make sure you all aren’t upset about it. “
The father said:
“No, good friend, someone went crazy when they had to pay to see them and the boys didn’t.”
Huh. Having a parent in her corner could also help her case when it goes to court, right?
What do you think of her reaction??
