TikTokers come in all shapes and sizes, some of which can be really bizarre. Such is the case of Felix Cipher, who attracted controversy after posting alarming videos wearing the Nazi symbol. Not only this, Felix called himself the reincarnation of Hitler and then, vanished from all social media platforms. While his videos are making rounds across the internet, people want to know who this person is. Read on to learn more about him.
Who Is Felix Cipher?
Felix Cipher is a social media influencer, who joined TikTok in 2021. Not many people knew him until the TikToker recently posted a video of his new nose ring. On Feb 6, 2023, Felix took TikTokers by surprise after they noticed a German Imperial Eagle (Reichsadler) pin on his jacket. If you aren’t aware, this version of the pin was used when Germany was burning under Nazi control between 1933 and 1945. Not only this, he donned a grey uniform, imitating to look like Adolf Hitler.

Amid his claims of being Hitler’s reincarnation, it has come out that Felix was fired from his job. One Twitter user shared a screenshot, revealing that Felix has been fired from his job as the workplace does not “aligns with [its] beliefs.” The user tweeted, “Felix Cipher is no longer employed. Fuck Nazi scum!” His now-deleted video has garnered massive outrage.
How Are People Reacting?
Felix didn’t stop posting this “pro-Nazi” video. He took things further by posting a response to his video. Felix Cipher claimed that he had been Adolf Hitler in a past life. “It’s time to address the nose ring drama. I need to tell you, guys, a little something about me,” Cipher was heard speaking in the video.
“You can call me crazy, you can call me whatever you’d like, but I am very in tune with my past and my past lives. My last life just so happened to be a very infamous one.” He claimed they first had a flashback of this former life at the age of 5. He claimed to have a scar on the side of his head, allegedly indicating where Hitler had “shot himself.”
After deleting this controversial video, Felix has vanished from almost all social media platforms. But then, it was too late as people have been slamming him for igniting anti-semitism. Against this offensive video, user “thetrueadventures”, an account run by Holocaust survivor Gidon Lev and his partner Julie Gray, made a video captioned: “Your cosplay isn’t cute. Grow up.”
Some people, on the other hand, have Felix the benefit of the doubt and wondered about the TikTokker’s mental health and what could have pushed him to make these videos. Felix may have removed the video, but its screenshots and re-upload of the video have amassed more than 22k likes.
Please note that according to the Anti-Defamation League, “antisemitic incidents reached an “all-time high” in 2021, and 2023 is on a similar track. This includes assault, harassment, and vandalism.” To find out more about the dangers of antisemitic rhetoric and what you can do to stop it, visit the American Jewish Committee’s Call to Action Against Antisemitism in America.
