On January 12, TikTok user @sentient.greenbean posted a video lamenting the fact that there were people on TikTok who still didn't know what the term "accountant" meant on the app. For those unfamiliar, on TikTok it typically doesn't mean someone who works with numbers — rather, the meaning has shifted to signify OnlyFans creators, strippers, sugar babies, and sex workers who frequently use it to refer to themselves and their work on the app.
"Y'all I thought everybody knew about this," @sentient.greenbean said in her video. "I made a TikTok the other day complaining about how a girl I know was trying to shame me and out me for being an accountant. And the number of people in the comments that were like 'Oh my god, why would you be ashamed of being good at math, why is that a bad thing?'... Guys, that's not what 'accountant' means."@sentient.greenbean
