Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker’s 12-year-old daughter, Weslie, is wise beyond her years. The teenager addressed TikTok in response to a comment that “she dresses like a child.” Although knowing that there was no need to justify her style, Weslie took the opportunity to defend herself.
“Just because I don’t wear dresses and bright pink doesn’t mean I dress like a kid,” she said as she spoke to fans in her message.

She went on to explain how personal style is not inherently linked to gender identity. “This is my style. I wear comfortable clothes and darker colors and just because I dress like this does not mean that I dress like a boy and does not mean that boys or girls are defined by certain things due to their gender,” she said confidently. “It doesn’t mean anything, and just because you can’t open your eyes doesn’t mean I’m about to change.”
And proud mom Allison Holker republished the video on her Instagram, showing unwavering support for her daughter’s positive message.
“Proud of my daughter for defending herself and using her voice”, the So you think you can dance Alum wrote. “We have to stop trying to take us down … instead, we have to come together to understand that our uniqueness is beautiful. I love you @weslierboss,” he said in the post title, adding the hashtags “#sayitlouderfortheonesintheback #genz # thisis12.”
Holker and her husband, Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, know the importance of telling the truth and leading by example. Following the murder of George Floyd, the couple participated in the ‘Check Your Privilege’ challenge on TikTok to demonstrate universal bias without saying a word.
