Where Is Timmy Thick Now and What Do We Know About His Harvard Social Experiment Controversies?

Among other things, social media is known for fostering global connectivity and bringing attention to social issues that traditional media was not quite able to do. The technology is also credited with having given a career to several personalities, one of who is Timmy Thick, a young man who rose to prominence in 2016 after posting a series of selfies across Instagram and Twitter.

Like every person who has achieved social media stardom, Timmy has encountered his share of controversial moments, most notably his claim that his presence on social media was a sociological experiment by Harvard University. Here is a full breakdown of the Timmy Thick persona, as well as the validity of his claims.

Who is Timmy Thick?

Despite popping up on social media in 2016, several biological details about Timmy Thick remain elusive. We do know, however, that he was born on the 21st of August, 1999, in New York. Widespread speculation suggests his real name is Justin, but the social media sensation has officially confirmed nothing.

From the few insights he has provided since he came onto the limelight, Timmy had a difficult time growing up, precisely because of the physical and verbal bullying he endured from people. The bullying was a result of his body, which is more feminine than masculine.

How Did He Become Popular?

In 2016, Timmy Thick met a guy from New Jersey. The two of them quickly forged a bond based on their shared experience with bullying due to their feminine nature. Inspired by the confidence of Timmy, the anonymous guy came up with the idea for a social media account where he could express himself to be created.

The two first created an Instagram account, @TimmytheBarbie, in 2016. With each post of a picture or selfie, showing off his curvy figure, including his thighs and butt, Timmy Thick’s popularity grew. A year after creating the Instagram account, he created a Twitter account, @timmythick, which has since grown to have over 34 thousand followers.

While his online content focuses on his pictures and videos, he is also known for celebrating other celebrities like Nicki Minaj and Kylie Jenner. But beyond his body image posts, Timmy has also garnered popularity through other controversies.

Controversies Surrounding His Social Media Usage

While Timmy’s existence as a young man with a body typically associated with women is the main source of the difference in opinion about him, he has courted more controversy due to a number of his other actions over the years.

One notable one of them was in 2019 when after a social media hiatus in the year before, he returned in December and posted a video of himself rapping a song with the N-word, an ethnic slur used to describe black people. As expected, the video promptly recieved some backlash.

Aside from that one, Timmy has stirred even more controversy as a result of his Harvard comment. In a tweet on the 17th of March 2018, the social media star posted a claim that his social media persona is a sociological study created by Harvard University. This has been proven to be false as confirmed by a Harvard Professor of Sociology, Jason Beckfield, who said the school commissioned no study of such. It can, however, not be contested that Timmy Thick’s existence on social media revealed a lot of information about gender expectations and tolerance levels.

What Has Timmy Think Been Upto in Recent Time?

After Timmy Thick claimed he was a Harvard experiment, he disappeared from social media and deleted all of his posts. Many of his fans, as well as casual observers of him, wondered if that was it for the social media star. As things would pan out, however, the internet phenomenon later made a return to the world that made him famous. He operates a private Instagram page, @timmythickish, and a public page, @timmythick, on Twitter. Via both pages, Timmy continues to live the life that made him into a celebrity of the digital world.

Other Things You Should Know About Timmy Thick

Outside his online antics, Timmy is just like any other normal kid. He loves to spend time with his friends and hang out whenever he can. Many of his fans believe that his most attractive feature is his lips. They have also encouraged him to consider becoming a lipstick model.

Other than his Twitter presence, Timmy also has a YouTube channel. The self-titled channel does not share the popularity of his Twitter page but he has posted a few videos since he created it in 2018.

The social media star is a self-professed dog lover. He also harbors fantasies of his ideal woman like every other person his age. For Timmy, his perfect woman would be Nicki Minaj – or at least any other lady who comes in the same mold.
