Sorry, Maddy Perez—Tinx better not be joking about sliding into a certain Euphoria star's DMs.

The TikTok personality took E! News inside her Instagram inbox on the latest episode of Down in the DMs, revealing a relatively subtle reach-out to none other than Angus Cloud, who plays fan-favorite character Fezco on the HBO series.

Sliding into his DMs like "every other girl in the world," Tinx said she sent a simple "Hey." Unfortunately, the story ends there as Tinx admitted, "I don't think he saw it or read it or cares."  

The podcast host didn't let that get her down, though. She revealed she DM'd GirlsChristopher Abbott her "go-to line to hit on guys," which is as straightforward as it gets: "Hi, I think you're really handsome!" Though he also hasn't responded, she has no regrets, even mentioning he's "out there" watching this very episode.

If you're wondering why Tinx is so open about her DMs, it's because she's used to sharing everything with her followers. That, and they're always asking for advice on how to hit up a celebrity's DMs themselves. After all, in spite of her bad luck with Angus and Christopher, Tinx confirmed she has seen "great success" before.

Thankfully, she imparted her wisdom on Down in the DMs, revealing, "it's actually more about timing."

"If you see that a celebrity is online, like they're actively posting, that's when you should DM them because you sort by chronological order," Tinx continued. "And when you get a bunch of DMs, you're not looking through all of them...So just make sure you're at the top."
