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.
