Local 12-year-old says she was kicked off Vine

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (WJBK) -

A local 12-year-old girl says she was kicked off the web site Vine because of her age. But Lillian Powers wants back on the site where she has hundreds of thousands of fans who love her 6-second videos.

Click on the video player to watch Robin Murdoch's report.

Saturday, in downtown Birmingham, we caught up with her making videos with the Oscar Mayer weinermobile. They paid her a special visit.

"She makes fun, good, clean videos," said the weinermobile's driver. "Hopefully we can drum up some support and get her back on vine."

Lillian racked up more than 124,000 followers after she posted about 100 of her short, silly videos on Vine. But, the account was suspended. Her family believes it's because she's only 12.

"I can't understand it," says her mom. "None of her videos are innappropriate or mean. They're happy and they touch people. Let her Vine."

"I'm just gonna keep making videos," added Lillian. "That's what I do. A lot of people like my videos so I'm just gonna make them happy."
