IT'S NOT every day that a state senator goes viral on TikTok for twerking.
However, that is precisely what Rhode Island's Democratic representative for District 6, Senator Tiara Mack did on July 4, 2022.
Why is Tiara Mack trending on Tiktok?
The state senator from Rhode Island took a rather unconventional approach to get traffic to her TikTok page, with a video of her in a bikini on the beach twerking while in a headstand.
After showing off her moves, the Brown University graduate looked into the camera and said, "Vote Senator Mack!"
The video caption read, "promised senator thirst trap at Block Island," with a smiling devil face emoji.
As with any controversial video posted to TikTok, the comments section has gone wild.

Mack responded to this in a video with a screenshot of the person's comment overlaying her response.
Mack responded by correcting the person and doubling down on her video.
"I believe the word that you meant to use was 're-elected,'" she said. "And it probably will because my constituents freakin' love that I'm a real person and I'm fun, and you know, not a robot."
However, for as much criticism as she received for her twerking video, Sen. Mack also received tons of love.
Countless users from out of state commented that they wished they lived in Rhode Island so that they could vote for her.
Other users, like Letisya Isler, commented their support from across the aisle.
"I’m Republican and I loved her video. She’s having fun and we need more young senators that are ACTUAL people and not robots. She’s a queen," Isler wrote.
User Cris-No-H said in a later comment, "I love that you didn’t take it down! I live in GA, but just donated to your reelection campaign!"
What other content does Tiara Mack share on her TikTok?
Sen. Mack has only been on TikTok since June 27, 2022, but so far, she's shared tons of resources and information for individuals looking to get involved, especially with hot topic issues, especially abortion rights.
For example, she posted a video following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade titled "Should you donate to an abortion fund or a politician?"
