The LSU gymnast's popularity on TikTok may be interfering with NCAA events.

Is there such a thing as being too popular? There might be for Olivia Dunne. Her fans recently disrupted a meet — and now her team is having to upgrade its security.

Jay Clark, the head coach of LSU’s gymnastics team, said there will now be added security for the team during away meets, per CNN. This comes after Olivia's fans disrupted a meet against the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on Jan. 6.

Coach Clark described the situation as “mob-like." In videos posted to TikTok from the scene, hordes of young men were waving posters written to Olivia and chanting, “We want Livvy! Give us Livvy!” as other athletes were trying to compete.

Olivia did not participate in the meet due to injury.
