Griffin is a popular TikTok content creator best known for his comedic videos on TikTok as well as his more personal vlog-style videos.
Griffin signed with the talent agency Talent X Entertainment once he became well-known on TikTok. He became a member of the Sway House, a TikTok collective formed by Talent X. The house features popular TikTok creators and content creators like Josh Richards, Bryce Hall and more. It’s one of the most up-and-coming collaborative houses.
However, in late 2020, he announced he would be leaving the Sway House and moving into the SwayGaming house. “For me, it wasn’t a personal thing,” he said. “It was just the fact that I have different goals, and I believe in the boys, and I know that they’ll be successful in their own paths.”
In 2020, Griffin joined Triller, a competing app with TikTok, and quickly grew to more than 100,000 followers.
Griffin was cast as Will on the Brat web series “Attaway General.” The show, on the same network as the popular “Chicken Girls,” follows a group of teens volunteering at a hospital.
Griffin has had several additional ventures outside of social media. He started his own podcast, titled “Sway Way,” where he takes listeners behind-the-scenes of what life is like living in the Sway House. In addition, in 2020, he released his debut single titled “Convenient.”
Griffin Johnson dated fellow TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio, but the pair later broke up amid rumors that Griffin had cheated on Dixie. He released a song called “Convenient” about their break-up, which Dixie later used as the audio for a video where she shared screenshots showing just how Griffin cheated on her. There are messages that Griffin sent to other girls while they dated, and some messages say Griffin was single.
Dixie even shared a text from Griffin, where he seems to apologize. “I own up to it completely and know that I have done wrong and that I have hurt you in a way that can never be forgiven or forgotten,” the text says. “I do want to say that regardless of anything and my actions have not reflected it but I do care about you and this was never a game to me. I am sorry from the bottom of my heart.”
Griffin later tweeted: “i admit to fucking up. I’m not perfect. God knows I’m not even close but time for others to admit the same.”
Griffin made headlines again in 2020 when he was seen eating at Los Angeles hotspot Craig’s with former Fashion Police host Kelly Osbourne. The two were seen hanging out again. The couple has a 14-year age difference between them, and the sighting came shortly after he broke up with Dixie.
