In August 2019, Brittany Broski swiftly (and quite accidentally) rose to fame when a video of the then-22-year-old became a viral sensation when it was turned into a popular meme and worldwide hit. Even if you don’t know her by name, you have probably seen the meme and are aware of her distaste for kombucha.

Brittany’s rise to fame has truly captured the new influencer frontiers of TikTok, with nearly 8 million followers across her TikTok accounts.

She is currently one of the most viral people on the internet, in huge part to her wit and charm. Her social platforms continue to grow exponentially as more fans get hooked on her hilarious and relatable content. Explore her videos: https://www.youtube.com/@Brittany_Broski
