CON­TENT CRE­ATOR

In­ter­net comedian Ver­sace, 20, first rose to fame as one of Vine’s most pop­u­lar stars, ac­cu­mu­lat­ing more than 3 mil­lion fol­low­ers and 2 bil­lion views on the so­cial me­dia plat­form be­fore it shut down in early 2017. He cur­rently has 3.5 mil­lion fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram and 780,000 fol­low­ers on YouTube, and co-starred in on­line se­ries “The Com­mute” for two sea­sons. Ver­sace made the head­lines in 2016 for com­ing out to his Snapchat fol­low­ers as free from sex­u­al­ity la­bels, some­thing he said he hopes in­spires some of his fans. “I want to love peo­ple that I’m in­ter­ested in and I don’t think I need to be de­fined by this one spe­cific thing,” Ver­sace says. “I want all my fans to be who­ever they want to be and to not be afraid of that.”
