Drew Afualo


Drew Afualo, best known as TikTok’s “Crusader for Women,” is a part of Hollywood's new generation of rising stars. From her hilariously witty content to her no BS approach to shoveling misogyny out of the app via viral takedowns, Drew is taking female empowerment to new levels, both on TikTok and on her popular Spotify Exclusive podcast The Comment Section.

Raised amongst several strong feminist figures in her life, Drew learned the power of standing up for herself from a young age. Upon joining the viral app in 2019, she realized how rife the platform was with sexist content aimed to put down women. It didn’t take long for Drew to become TikTok's unofficial misogyny and sexism watchdog. Her signature laugh is now recognized as a summoning cry to rid the internet of its “dudes with microphones,” thus creating a safe space for women to fight outdated patriarchal ideals and reclaim their power.

Although some see it as brutal, Drew’s content has been an inspiration to women of all ages, reminding them of their strength. Drew’s mission is to empower femmes from every background — inclusive of each color, size, race, and all of the in-betweens — to gain the confidence to stand up for themselves and others.

Beyond her content on TikTok, Drew is also a women’s rights advocate, a proud Samoan who often uplifts her heritage and others in the AAPI community, a huge sports fan (she used to work for the NFL), and a magnet for fashion and high-end beauty brands who has partnered with MAC Cosmetics, Milk Makeup, Fenty Beauty, and Starface, just to name a few.

Her success has brought her praise in publications like the New York Times, NYLON, Refinery 29, Teen Vogue, and Rolling Stone, and has earned her titles such as Adweek’s 2022 “Digital & Tech Creator of the Year” and TikTok’s 2022 “AAPI Trailblazer.” Widely recognized as an innovator within her industry, she was named an honoree on Meta’s inaugural “Creators of Tomorrow” list, secured a spot on TikTok’s second annual "Discover List,” and was most recently named a “Next Generation Leader” by TIME Magazine.

Drew's writing has appeared in the LA Times and her debut book LOUD: Accept Nothing Less Than the Life You Deserve is due from Questlove's AUWA Books, an imprint of FSG, summer 2024.
