Alabama Barker As A Social Media Influencer
Barker is one of many celebrity kids that made it big as a social media influencer.
She boasts over a million followers on TikTok, where she regularly posts dance and challenge videos with friends.
Barker is also an avid Instagram user, where she regularly updates her 995,000 followers about her day-to-day activities.
Barker’s parents permitted their children to use social media at a very young age. Shee often competed with her brother to see who could hit certain follower milestones the fastest.
Due to her father’s insane level of fame, Barker has been the subject of cyber-bullying since she first joined Instagram.
In 2016, she was criticized for making herself look older than she was through her clothing and makeup by the controversial Youtuber RiceGum.
In his video, the content creator displayed Barker’s Instagram profile on screen, pointing out that the then 10-year-old was following a lifestyle she was too young to engage in.
He also pointed out that Instagram’s guidelines stated that nobody under the age of thirteen could make their own account, saying that Barker’s parents must have had a hand in their daughter’s social media success.
After his video went live, Barker’s photos were flooded with hate comments, with many blaming her parents for giving their daughter access to a platform that was dangerous for children.
Barker’s father then publicly threatened the Youtube star, and her mother even called him out on Twitter, bringing even more attention to the video.
In response, RiceGum told Barker’s parents he was only pointing out what he noticed online and had no desire to encourage cyber-bullying.
Barker’s mother then made a documentary on the topic, traveling to different schools to learn about the impact of bullying on impressionable minds.
When asked about how she deals with the regular stream of hate comments on her social media accounts, Barker says she deletes them without reading.

Barker, who has been involved in the Kardashian-Jenner social circle since she was born, has been nothing but supportive of the relationship.
In a live Q&A on Instagram in July, Barker was asked about her thoughts on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star in a game of Never Have I Ever.
When asked if she had ever met Kardashian, the influencer replied with, “She’s my stepmom.”
A source revealed that the two had formed a strong born in the early stages of Kardashian’s relationship with Travis Barker, saying:
“Alabama knows she can always go to Kourtney for advice or support with anything going on, of course, it will never be as if Kourt is her biological mother, but it’s comforting for Alabama to have Kourt around.”
It appears that the musician’s children are nothing but supportive of the A-List relationship.
“Both of Travis’ kids love Kourt and are so happy seeing their dad in love,” the source added. “It’s been a great fit for everyone.”
Kourtney and Travis went all out for Barker’s sweet sixteen on Christmas Eve, with both stars sharing snaps of the decor they had arranged for the occasion.
Barker even filmed a TikTok with Kardashian’s daughter, Penelope Disick, and niece North West two months after the Kourtney-Travis engagement in October.
The three were seen participating in the latest trend on the app, bobbing along to a remix of “Drilla Freestyle” by Opps and Blocks.
Barker wrote “Meet my friends,” before panning the camera to show the leading ladies of the second generation of Kardashian-Jenners.
