What’s the furthest you’ll go for likes on TikTok?
Donna Paysepar, the 20-year-old woman who shook the world by jumping off a boat into the Hudson River told NJ Advance Media, “when it started getting likes I was like, OK, this was what I wanted.”
She posted the video on TikTok and is currently at 5.7 million views, and more than 518 thousand likes! It also has more than 39.4 thousand comments, and it is people concerned for her health.

Donna also said in the interview she is facing a lot of backlash, “some people are sending death threats saying, ‘I hope she dies from that water,’ ‘she’s not going to be able to have kids.’” She responded to the comments with another TikTok quoting the website for New York State’s department of Environmental conservation about the river.
The Hudson River is known to be gross, people are worried for her safety due to potential chemicals in the river, and the fact that the water was brown when she jumped in. That can’t be safe… She says it was a spur of the moment thing and she won’t be doing it again.
Would you ever jump in the Hudson River to swim with lady liberty?
