A fake Oprah Winfrey account is taking TikTok by storm and people are there for it.

You’d swear US talk show queen Oprah Winfrey was on Tik Tok by looking at her doppelganger’s uncanny resemblance on the video creating platform. Unfortunately for Oprah fans, she does not have a TikTok account.

The profile @OprahWinfreyAtHome already has 55K followers and 64.7K likes although users know it’s a fake account. In her first video, the Oprah impersonator challenged another American legend’s doppelganger, Mariah Carey.

However, the parody account for @MariahCareyAtHome has since been removed off TikTok.

@oprahwinfreyathomeMy first trend! What about that @justinbieberathome ? I nominate you @mariahcareyathome ! ##pizzahut ##taco ##oprah ##oprahwinfrey ##fyp ##trend

The video show “Oprah at Home” taking on a mom and dad origin challenge with the fake Oprah revealing both her parents were American with brown eyes which have passed down to her.

If the celebrity account is missing a verified checkmark, the profile is fake.

Fake or not, many are loving @OprahAtHome with most not realising it’s a parody account for the queen of talk.
