Why did TikTok star Siya Kakkar at the age of 16 commit suicide?
TikTok star Siya Kakkar was known for her interesting commentary on Indian dances and the dance app TikTok. Siya Kakkar, who has about 2 million followers, died when she was 16 years old.
The Indian TikTok star, Siya Kakkar, who gathered more than 1 million followers on the platform with lip syncing and dance videos, passed away on June 25 in New Delhi. She was 16 years old.
While the family did not provide a cause of death, India Today reported that Kakkar died by suicide.
Kakkar’s talent manager, Arjun Sarin, shared a photo of the smiling teenager, confirming that the popular content creator has been on Instagram.
While no statement has been made about Siya’s death, it is emphasized that the little star committed suicide, according to the information leaked from his manager. It is wondered why TikTok star Siya Kakka, whose Bollywood style dances have been watched tens of million times, led her to suicide.
According to a statement posted on Instagram by a photographer who worked with the agency and took pictures of the young girl, Siya was fighting a severe depression, but no one thought she would commit suicide.
On the other hand, it is thought that Siya’s suicide will raise the drawbacks of young children seeking “fame” on social media platforms such as TikTok or Instagram. It is worried that young people, who have not yet completed their psychological development, reach large masses through social media services and remain under numerous criticism and attacks.
Recently, a little girl in England committed suicide after falling into depression because she found the photos of her friends in Intagram “ugly”. Facebook employs a special psychological support team in order to prevent young people from committing suicide on social media and operates an artificial intelligence that predicts this issue. However, they still cannot catch up with every suicide case.
So what do you think about the activities of young people on social media? Are social media apps dangerous to teen psychology?

photographer Viral Bhayani also expressed his sympathy on Instagram, writing that Kakkar had previously spoken to Sarin, who said he was “in a good mood and completely fine”.
Bhayani begged his followers, “If you feel depressed, please don’t do this.”
The post received more than 90,000 likes in just one day and sparked widespread speculation among fans about the circumstances surrounding Kakkar’s death.
Sarin confirmed to Insider that he spoke to Kakkar the night before he left, and everything seemed “normal”.
“She was an honest, fun-loving girl, and that shocked me,” she said. “I will always remember him as a great artist.”
The young teen’s TikTok follower count skyrocketed after news of his death – Kakkar had 2 million followers on Friday afternoon.
The last TikTok video released the day before his death shows 16-year-old lips singing a Bollywood song from the roof.
