She continued: “They don’t really serve any purpose, they just look weird but sometimes I rub them together like a weird fidget toy and that’s cool.”

In the comment section, she apologised for making the joke about Claire’s after some viewers believed her.

“Sorry for the miscommunication in this video. Claire's does not offer subdermal implants and I don't recommend them for piercings,” she wrote.

One commenter wrote: “Audibly gagged when you rubbed them together my toes are grinding as we speak please never again.”

Another said: “Built in fidget toy omg”.

“You must wash clothes really well,” another quipped. Madison responded: “LMAO they do help with washing my hands”.
