Jasmine Chiswell, a TikTok star known for her retro-style movies, has come under fire for a video that appears to be laughing about violating photos of the University of Wisconsin volleyball team. Chiswell, who has over 16 million TikTok followers, shared the video with the caption:
“My husband and I recently had a huge argument and he stated that he is moving to Wisconsin to play volleyball.”
Despite the video being taken down, another TikToker, Ms. Ryan, pasted Chiswell’s video, saying she didn’t get the punch line of the joke. Ryan speculates in the film that Jasmine’s husband was looking at photos of “barely legal ladies (who) had their nude photos published without their permission.” Ms. Ryan’s TikTok video has been viewed more than 355,000 times on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, and has received more than 200 Instagram likes.
Netizens continue to show their support for the Wisconsin volleyball team.
Jasmine Chiswell’s video was quickly condemned by her fans. Many people agreed with Ms. Ryan and supported the Wisconsin squad. Photos of women’s volleyball players from the University of Wisconsin began circulating last week without the athletes’ permission. The photos, taken in their lockers, were widely shared on social media sites such as Twitter, TikTok and Reddit. The institution released a statement on October 20, 2022, stating that the photos were “never intended to be publicly distributed”. According to the statement, “unauthorized disclosure is a major and unlawful invasion of student privacy.”
Netizens supported the team and denounced the incident as a blatant invasion of their privacy. In light of this, Chiswell’s video did not leave a favorable impression. While some people said the video left a terrible taste in their mouths, others pointed out that they shouldn’t downplay the situation. Some viewers were also perplexed by the punch line of the video.

I never liked Jasmine Chiswell. She made Marilyn Monroe her entire career without looking ANYTHING like Marilyn Monroe. I’m also tired of every white girl whose life is so safe that they have to romanticize the tragedy that was Marilyn Monroe’s life.

According to a comment:
“When I saw it, I felt it. For example, what is hilarious? That’s terrible to laugh at.”
Users praised Ms. Ryan’s video for tackling the issue with the Wisconsin volleyball team.
Who exactly is Jasmine Chiswell?
The Scottish TikTok celebrity, who withdrew the video from Wisconsin after the protest, became known as the “Marilyn Monroe” of the internet. The influencer lives in the house Monroe had with baseball star Joe Dimaggio during their marriage. On TikTok, Chiswell makes vintage-inspired beauty and fashion videos.
She recently teamed up with Colourpop, expressing her retro-modern flair. Jasmine also shares tours and intimate stories with her 16 million Instagram followers. Even before the Wisconsin video, netizens were divided about her. Some people praised her videos and labeled her material as “healthy.” Others were offended by TikToker’s apparent exploitation of the famous Hollywood starlet’s life.
After the current video, one person commented:
“I used to love her material. It’s gotten so weird lately, and I’ve held out, but I think this is the last straw.”
