Timmy Thick is the social media alias for a teenager known for posting provocative photos to social media. The social media star appears to be a teenage boy and first rose to fame under his original Instagram account “TIMMYTHEBARBIE” which has since been disabled.
The star received attention in 2018 for his tweet claiming he was the result of a Harvard experiment. He took a year-long hiatus and returned to social media in late 2019 with a video explaining his whereabouts.
The person using the alias Timmy Thick on social media was born on August 21, 2002 in New York City, New York. Timmy Thick isn’t his real name, though. Timmy keeps his actual name private, and he keeps his personal life private as well: no one knows the name of his parents, or if he has any siblings.
Timmy Thick has 40,400 subscribers on YouTube, 40,000 followers on Instagram and 46,000 Twitter followers.
Timmy first started becoming popular on social media in 2016 under his “TIMMYTHEBARBIE” Instagram account, which no longer exists. Timmy became popular for posting provocative selfies and photos, and his account was reported for violating Instagram’s terms and conditions several times.
In 2017, a popular YouTube account titled “LoveLive Serve” posted a video about Timmy titled “TIMMY THICK MUST BE STOPPED!” and the video, which got millions of views, earned him thousands of followers overnight and put him on the social media map.
During his rise to fame, his personal information has been subject to questioning: how old is Timmy? What gender is Timmy? What is his sexual orientation? Fans constantly asked these questions.
On March 17, 2018, Timmy’s Twitter account (which remains active) posted a controversial tweet. “Good Evening, “timmythick” was a 24 month sociological study conducted by Harvard University. We are now complete with our study. Thank you for your time,” the tweet read. The tweet forced many to reckon with the fact that they really did not know anything about Timmy or his personal life.
Babe.net seemingly debunked the claim by speaking with a Harvard University sociology professor, who claimed there was no such experiment.
Timmy then vanished from social media and his Instagram account disappeared with no further word until December 7, 2019, when he uploaded a YouTube video titled “Q&A: IM BLACK NOW !!?”
The video, more than a year after his Harvard experiment tweet, addresses a number of questions about his social media absence, including “Why have I been gone for so long?” and “What do you say to haters?”
He answered another question that caused quite a controversy: “Has a fan ever asked for pictures when I’m out in public?”
Timmy answered in his video: “I can’t go nowhere, the mall, the movies, nothing, without a group of five, six females, or n******, it don’t matter, coming up to me.”
The user of the N-word outraged many of his fans, who scolded him for returning to social media and using such an outrageous word.
Since then, Timmy has posted on his new Instagram page several times with provocative content and feminine poses.
