TikTok videos posted by the 16-year-old Ohio girl who was killed by police while wielding a knife this week are a heartbreaking reminder that she was just a child, social media users said Thursday.

Ma’Khia Bryant’s lighthearted videos show her performing hair and beauty tutorials sometimes while flashing a peace sign or blowing a kiss.

One of Bryant’s videos — in which she dances to a Bryson Tiller song while doing her haircare routine — had raked in more than 2.6 million views Thursday, with observers calling it tear-jerking.

“I just saw someone post one of Ma’khia’s tiktoks and im feeling so f-cking shaken. I remember being 16. I looked like her, same round cheeks, we had the same hair texture, very similar skin shade, she just gives off an energy that I /know/ I gave off as a kid. She was a KID, man,” one twitter user wrote.

Another proclaimed, “Seeing ma’khia’s tiktoks and her pinterest is heart wrenching.”

Bryant’s videos were deleted from TikTok after her fatal shooting and were then reposted on Twitter, where they went viral.

Bryant was killed Tuesday after she reportedly called police to report girls in her neighborhood fighting. When Columbus cops arrived, she was seen charging at another girl with a knife, prompting officer Nicholas Reardon to open fire, according to police and body cam footage.

More than 100 protesters gathered in Columbus to demonstrate against the fatal police shooting Thursday.

“She was a very loving, peaceful little girl,” Bryant’s mom, Paula Bryant told 10TV. “Ma’Khia had a motherly nature about her. She promoted peace, and that’s something that I want to always to be remembered.”
