About Emmy

Outburst meme queen Emmy Hartman is bringing the tears to TikTok. The viral sensation known for her hilariously emotive breakdown over a traffic ticket that made the social rounds in 2017 has found a new emotional outlet on the short-form platform. Building upon her sketch antic appeal, Emmy’s 2019 foray into TikTok served as a full-spectrum showcase from the hilarious to the bizarre, with videos including an "audition to be a piece of lice on Ariana Grande’s head," crying over a car mouse and of course, clones. With close to 860K+ followers and 35M+ likes, Emmy ended her 2019 in true dramatic fashion with multi-part tearful videos over her upcoming LA relocation going viral.
