Leslie Jordan on TikTok
One of his famous videos is him dancing on Hold me Closer by Elton John and Britney Spears. His nonchalant way of dancing in his bedroom wearing pajamas is representative of how comfortable and natural his videos were for his followers.
The relatability of his content is evident from this video that he made in Vegas to show his followers the view from his hotel suite. He then showed how many sweets he had eaten during his trip. He is the kind of personality that regrettably did not go viral earlier and will definitely be missed.
