Who exactly is Sister Cindy on TikTok?

Cindy Smock, aka Sister Cindy on TikTok, is a preacher who spreads the gospel in a Gen Z-ified way. She and her husband, evangelist Brother Jed, often preached on college campuses, sharing their controversial views with young people. Brother Jed passed away in June 2022, but Sister Cindy has continued her work.

Cindy's main slogan is “Ho no' mo',” which is her way of crudely cautioning people against premarital sex. In one of her recent videos, she even posits that professional sex workers are struggling to make ends meet because college girls are “giving it away to any boy who comes up with a mop and a bucket.”

In another video from Sister Cindy on TikTok, she’s wearing a black long-sleeve shirt that says “Hell is hot. Don’t be a thot." For those who might be unaware of what the word “thot” means, it’s a derogatory nickname for someone who chooses to have multiple sexual partners.

In another video, she takes a more serious approach while speaking with Missouri State University students. In her talk, she touts that college isn't the place for kids to go if they want to have sex and be party animals. She says it should be the place people go to get an education and live for God.

Obviously, Sister Cindy's ideas are controversial. In the background of the video, there are students booing her, critical of what she has to say. Instead of acknowledging the criticism, Sister Cindy remains steadfast in her religious message.

In 2023, Sister Cindy released the "One Margarita" song on TikTok after a video of her preaching at LSU went viral.

In May 2023, a video of Sister Cindy preaching abstinence at Louisiana State University went viral. The speech is extremely NSFW (you can check out the video below), as at one point she describes what a girl will do after one margarita, then two margaritas, etc. — getting increasingly more sexual. The crowd roars behind her with each part of her story, loving it in a clearly ironic way.

Comedian That Chick Angel on TikTok then created a spoof song (also very NSFW) out of Sister Cindy's speech and called it "Give Me a Margarita." TikTok loved it, and the song went viral.

Well, Sister Cindy then took it a step further and created her own version of that song, called "One Margarita."

Sister Cindy's song appears to be a much more safe-for-work version of the speech she gave as LSU. Lyrics include: "Drink one margarita and you start to slide; drink two margaritas and you lose your pride; drink three margaritas you're empty inside; drink four margaritas your heart's stone-cold ... drink five margaritas and you've lost your soul."
