Countless young TikTok users daydream about the kind of popularity and financial success enjoyed by Florida teenager Ava Majury – but no one in their right mind would ever want to attract the kind of fanatical attention this unfortunate child endured, leading to traumatic, life-changing events for herself and her family.
Aged just 14, Majury became the obsession of 18-year-old Eric Rohan Justin, who turned violent when his inappropriate advances were rejected. On July 10th 2021, Justin turned up at her house armed with a shotgun and forced his way into the house with the intention of killing Majury, before her ex-cop father fatally shot the intruder. Yet despite these horrific events, the young TikTok star has no intention of retiring from the social media platform.

Born September 2006, Ava Majury grew up in Naples, Florida with her father, mother and two brothers. She lived an ordinary life, attending school and playing on the soccer team. Then at age 13 Majury joined TikTok, and soon built up a substantial following. The 2020 lockdown saw TikTok’s popularity increase in a big way, and Majury’s profile rose along with it: soon her TikTok followers numbered upwards of a million, to say nothing of the following she found on Instagram and Snapchat.
Hand in hand with this, she soon started making a substantial amount of money. Brands soon began approaching her to be featured in her posts, leading to her earning as much as $1,700 per post. All this from simple, innocent clips of a young teenage girl lip-syncing, dancing, smiling and generally having fun. Credit: @ava.majury via Instagram
