Florida Woman Duped By TikTok Video Into Traveling To Gastonia Appears On Kelly Clarkson Show
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Recently, Kelly Clarkson spoke with a Florida woman who drove an hour out of her way to see the snow-covered, scenic mountains of Gastonia… only to discover she’d been tricked!
The confusion was caused after North Carolina native Zachary Keesee posted a TikTok video showing off a beautiful mountain he visited in Switzerland and titled it “Gastonia, North Carolina. A TRUE gem.”
@realzacharykeesee #duet with @itsoliviagarcia we had a viewer visit Gastonia to see the lovely sights! Check out her video! #northcarolina #nc #gastonia #charlotte ♬ We Don’t Talk About Bruno – Carolina Gaitán – La Gaita & Mauro Castillo & Adassa & Rhenzy Feliz & Diane Guerrero & Stephanie Beatriz & Encanto – Cast
The video was seen by millions, including Olivia Garcia, who convinced her family on the way back from Boone, N.C. to take a detour to see the town.
Garcia says she realized her mistake almost immediately.
As her family approached Gastonia, Garcia began taking video of the clearly not mountainous town and posted it to TikTok.
Her video has since been seen by thousands of people.
You can catch THE KELLY CLARKSON SHOW, 5 PM weekdays on WCCB Charlotte’s CW.
