Robert Pattinson has been in the spotlight for the better half of 2022. As is often the case for elusive actors hes quietly made his exeunt into the ether post-The Batman press tour leaving fans starved for his slightly off-color content. Well look no further! Hes on TikTok or… someone on TikTok is pretending to be him. Towards the end of March a TikTok user named iam pattinson awkwardly stepped out hovered and waved like a sim waiting for direction in a TikTok captioned “Hi there! robert pattinson pattinson robert pattinsonedit
The accounts first video of eight has garnered 20 million views and the account itself clocks in at 590.2K followers. Whether or not the video is our endearingly awkward Rob Pat himself or an uncanny deepfake remains unclear but let us review the material. When we first happened upon this account on our “For You” page likely due to the high volume of Twilight thirst edits consumed on a daily basis we were excited confused and ultimately a bit cringed out. Each video seems somehow more embarrassing than the next between playing Batman dress up and strumming an acoustic guitar which is of course the ultimate ick. Subject matter generally centers around two key themes: having TikTok and being Robert Pattinson with some Batman-informed posts as well. But the videos weigh in on highly relatable themes and inside scoops into the life of a world-renowned actor. Hes just like us! We too “love shooting as well as canceling robertpattinson #morning #actor.” And dont get us wrong there is something so real about loving to cancel plans but the Russian text used for every sound leads us to believe this account is unfortunately fake.
