The popular American Tiktoker Annie Niu posted a video on her page in which she says that her twin sister died three years ago. But her grandparents don’t know, so Annie now calls them, posing as her dead sister.
Annie is Asian-American and in Asian culture, she said, it is customary “to protect older people from terrible news.”
– Many people think that grandparents deserve to know the truth. But they don’t deserve to die, and there’s no guarantee they’ll survive the news, having learned everything,” Annie shared her experience.
Niu and her sister were raised by their grandparents, which is why she cares so much for them.
Annie also said that she dreams about her sister almost every night.
“I treat it like I still spend half my life with her,” the girl said.
The video received a large number of views and comments. Someone supported Annie, but there are those who criticized her, demanding to tell the old people the whole truth.
