Trisha was trying to recreate a scene from Beetlejuice when she unintentionally flashed her TikTok followers.
Trisha Paytas has apologised after unknowingly exposing herself on TikTok. Last week (8 Dec), the YouTuber shared a short clip of herself lip-syncing to a song from the musical Beetlejuice whilst in costume. However, Trisha's dress was unbuttoned just below her stomach and when she moved around the opening gaped, revealing that she was naked beneath the dress.
TikTok has extremely strict community guidelines on explicit and sexual content, or nudity and the video was taken down within hours of being posted. However, people had already had the chance to record it by then and the clip began circulating Twitter. Many questioned why Trisha would exposed herself on the platform, considering TikTok is predominantly used by teenagers.
Trisha has now apologised about the incident in a 30-minute YouTube video posted on Tuesday (10 Dec). In the video, Trisha explained that she didn't purposely flash her over 660,000 TikTok followers, in fact, she was the one who removed the video.
"My TikToks aren't sexy, I'm not trying to be sexy on TikTok," she explained. "There were two buttons that weren't buttoned down there. It wasn't explicit. To be fair, it wasn't my vagina, it was above it, it was below the belly button area. Nevertheless, I deleted it immediately. I was mortified."
Trisha went on to say that her dress was unbuttoned because she was in a rush, doing quick costume changes. It wasn't until she returned home at 1am after shooting some music videos that she saw the comments about her video on Twitter.

She continued: "I was embarrassed and I was scared because I love TikTok. I don't make money on TikTok, I just love it. I do sexy content in other places where it's age appropriate and there's restrictions, but not TikTok."
