Danielle Cohn Wiki – Biography
Danielle Cohn Influencer and musician, who boasts 18.3 million TikTok followers and 1.8 million YouTube subscribers, has become an online sensation thanks to her lip-syncing videos and controversial social media presence.
Danielle Cohn, a teenage TikTok phenom, has been receiving backlash since the upload of her latest cover. On September 5, 2020, Cohn uploaded a new video to TikTok of her singing Ashanti’s 2002 song “Foolish” with the caption “Make a TikTok to my new song.” Social media users assumed that she was claiming the Grammy-nominated track as her own and she was bashed.
Cohn’s mother, Jen Archambault, told Buzzfeed News that she erroneously wrote that it was her song when she meant to write that it was a cover in the caption of the TikTok post.
“She is a teenager,” Archambault said. “She made a mistake on a TikTok. I think this is out of hand.”
Archambault, who is also Cohn’s manager, added that Cohn’s team took the proper steps to obtain legal clearances for Cohn to cover “Foolish.” We have a mechanical license and got permission to do the cover and Ashanti and her label make money off of it,” Archambault added.
As the backlash was thrown her way, Cohn responded on Twitter. Do people not understand what a cover is,” she tweeted. She added that she wasn’t happy that the controversy led to her trending on Twitter.
“Trending on twitter cause I did a cover song so sad!,” she posted.
Do people not understand what a cover is 🤷🏻♀️

Controversy Regarding Cohn Before
This isn’t the first time there has been controversy around Cohn. Her age has also been a hot topic. According to Insider, in 2019 her father, Dustin Cohn, uploaded a video to Facebook, that has since been deleted, saying that his daughter was 13-years-old at the time and not 15 like she was claiming. In the video, he has a birth certificate that he is claiming to be Cohn’s that said that she was born in 2006.
“I have decided to set things straight about my daughter Danielle Cohn,” the Facebook post read according to Insider. “For years I have done the diplomatic thing while dealing with my daughter being online in a way I didn’t approve of and trying to have it handled out of social media because I figured the system would work and keep my daughter safe.”
He also shared these same claims on YouTube.
Cohn responded to her father’s claims and said he drinks and is violent. Archambault told Insider that Cohn is in fact 16-years-old.
“Danielle is 16,” she said. “She’s addressed it herself on many YouTube videos but, unfortunately, we have a lot of people that want to ruin her career or make something out of nothing so that they can get attention or followers.”
