I found a still from the original (unless it was reposted from another account) video from Douyin ( 抖音 )! The username is Lelemaoshe!! Sorry, it’s very likely you can’t find the owner on Instagram or Twitter because they are (seemingly) from China. I would try Weibo or Billi Billi and see what you come up with! Although I couldn’t find anything again I don’t speak Chinese.


I don’t have TikTok so I’m not sure if you can access Douyins there as well. Maybe y’all can try!! Douyin is the same as TikTok, just in China (they have the same company!)”
