Remember Vine?

You might have seen Rickey Thompson there.

Rickey is an American comedian, internet influencer, and actor who rose to fame when Kylie Jenner shared one of his Vine videos way back in 2016.

Since then, he’s been making us laugh with his hilarious content and wowing us with his acting skills.

Rickey’s effortless, single-take, off-the-cuff, dramatic, side-splitting videos keep his viewers commenting “#relatable” and coming back for more.

The Origin Story

Internet personality Rickey Thompson spent his childhood in Raleigh, North Carolina.

He has a little sister named Karson.

He was heavily involved in theater at Millbrook High School.

Throughout his time at the school, he was harshly bullied for being openly gay after he came out as gay on Twitter in 2016.

Rickey had many female friends growing up, but he was never attracted to any of them.

Even though he knew his sexuality from an early age, it took Rickey a long time to accept it and speak up about it.

While still in high school, Rickey started making and uploading videos on YouTube sharing his bullying experiences and giving fashion tips.

He also started a Vine account where he made many comedic short clips of himself.

At 17, one of Rickey’s Vine videos was shared by the megastar Kylie Jenner, which, as you can imagine, skyrocketed Rickey’s presence on the platform.

By the time Vine was shut down, his account had over 2.5 million loyal followers.

Rickey told Interview Magazine this about his family’s reaction to his sudden fame, “At first, my mom was like, ‘Be careful out there because there are crazy people out there in the world.’ And I was like, ‘Mom, people look at me as a voice, and I really want to help them feel better.’”

Once Vine was no more (rest in peace), Rickey took his comedic videography to Instagram.

He is now verified and monetizing his content.

He even voiced some parts of the album “OnePointFive” belonging to American popstar Aminé’s, as well as being featured in the music video for the song “Reel It In.”

According to YouTube, Rickey’s love life as of 2017 was somewhat turbulent.

He tells a crazy story of his whirlwind relationship with a foreign exchange student from Germany who ended up proposing to him.

Obviously, Rickey did not get married to him.

In an interview with Interview Magazine in 2019, Rickey said, “Dating for me is rough. People see an opportunity. They think if I’m dating them, I’ll put them on a video as well. It’s very hard… When I go on a date, they know where I’m from, they know what I do, and I’m like, I don’t even know your last name.”

Some rumors are out there that Rickey and his fellow fashionista Denzel Dion are romantically involved, but the two say they are just best friends.
