“Dancing for the Devil: The 7M TikTok Cult” – A Deep Dive into a Controversial Netflix Docuseries

Netflix’s recent docuseries, "Dancing for the Devil: The 7M TikTok Cult," has brought significant attention to the intersection of social media fame, religious influence, and allegations of cult-like behavior.

WATCH: Actor Max Ehrich Baptized on the Movie Set of “Southern Gospel”

Last week, the movie “Southern Gospel,” which tells the true story of singer Samuel Allen, was released, featuring actor, Max Ehrich. This faith-based film displays Allen’s journey from drugs to Jesus, which ultimately inspired Ehrich to be baptized on the movie set.

Why Was Max Ehrich Baptized on a Movie Set?

If you’re a soap opera fan, you may know Max Ehrich from “The Young and the Restless.”

Or maybe you’re a Demi Lovato fan. Then you know Max Ehrich as the singer’s former fiancée. That’s sort of where the story of this baptism starts.

The 31-year-old actor, who dated Lovato from March 2020 to July 2020 and then became engaged, sadly saw a split with the singer only two months later.

Sadly, tabloids focused substantially on the couple’s rise and fall, which made a hard time even more difficult.

Thankfully, during the same year of the split, Max Ehrich was on the movie set for “Southern Gospel” because the role required him to spend a lot of time in the Bible.

The actor talked about his role in the film with Leah Klett here:

When pondering the impact of the film on his life, Ehrich said the film came “during a very specific time in my life and I’m very grateful that I had that movie there.”

It was that pain and his role that led to him being baptized.

“My faith increased immensely…I think, just to get in the headspace, I was reading the Bible so much and I’d say that I definitely have grown so much as a person just from the experience.”
