OnlyFans star Mia Khalifa has boughtit seems, according to a tweet published today.
"Okay I caved and bought the dog stocks lmaoooooo," she told her 3.4 million-strong Twitter following.

The pump followed a tweet by the unofficial WSBChairman account on Twitter, which isn't run by those behind Wall Street Bets. This account rose from 12,000 followers on Tuesday to 750,000 today—giving it more influence. The account simply tweeted, "Has Doge ever been to a dollar?"

But it seems that Khalifa has caught the top of the pump. At the time of her tweet, Dogecoin was at $0.074. Since then, it has fallen to $0.048, down 35%.
