When TikTok started gaining popularity, Jesus Morales, like many other young people, decided to create original content to post on the social media platform.

The 24-year-old said that after being fired from his job at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, he decided to use his free time to create funny videos. His followers increased, but the results didn’t really make him happy.
