Since sharing her dilemma, Hattie’s bitten arm video has received 1.4m views, and over 190,000 likes, with people who were extremely concerned for Hattie, asking if she was okay in the comments, with others also acknowledging how insane it is that someone would do this.
One person wrote: “Girl what on earth happened... ARE YOU OKAY.”
“Why are people literally unhinged, like who just BITES people ????” another person said.
Someone else replied: “they’re BITING us now??”
“Nurse here! If they broke the skin you need to go A&E, humans mouth have a crazy amount of bacteria and you could need an injection and antibiotic,” a fourth person replied with their medical expertise.
In a follow-up video, Hattie then updated her followers that she was now at an NHS walk-in centre to seek medical help, waiting to be seen, but it seems the bite mark hasn’t been getting any better.
“Update i am in an NHS walk in centre,” she wrote, “but the bruising has got a lot worse :/”
The TikToker then pans the camera around to show her arm, which looks it’s changed to a purplish colour and visibly even more swollen than before.

But Hattie appears ok in another update video, where she explains the events from the fateful night.
She noted how she didn’t feel “that drunk” but lost consciousness at one point.
“Last thing I remember was that I was like dancing with my friends, then I remember kind of losing them,” Hattie recalls. “And then I don’t remember anything until I was passed out in the toilets.”
Due to not feeling very drunk and randomly losing consciousness, Hattie believe that it’s possible she had her drink spiked.
“The fact that I lost my memory—I could’ve been spiked, I’m not sure,” the TikToker added. “It could’ve just been my brain didn’t want to make a memory.”
Given there has been a recent increase in spiking incidents, with almost 200 have been reported to police forces across the UK within the last two months, the National Police Chiefs’ Council said on October 22 - so it is possible this could have happened to Hattie.
