Viral TikTok sensation PinkyDoll is trending after her eyebrow-raising appearance at the Streamy Awards where she appeared to be several shades darker than she is on her popular livestreams.
The “Queen of NPC” stunned in a curve-caressing catsuit while presenting an award to various digital stars and firing off her signature catchphrases like “ice cream so good” and “yes yes yes.”

For those outside the social media loop, the real-life A.I. character skyrocketed to social media stardom as the face of the hilariously unhinged NPC craze trending online.

In potentially lucrative TikTok livestreams, she plays the role of an “NPC” (non-playable character)–think real-life Anime characters–to receive money via eGifts like ice cream, balloons, and roses from viewers.

While many accused the social media star of lightening her skin online, several of her fans swooped in to argue that she didn’t look that different in person.
They also claimed that a ring light (commonly used by influencers for quality lighting in videos) could also cause of her online/offline skin tone difference.
pinkydoll is like me, lighter in certain lighting and pecan brown in dimmer settings

Hmmm, based on the Streamys clip, photos from the event, and her IG posts, there certainly appears to be a noticeable difference but we’ll let you be the judge.
