TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has been on the receiving end of backlash after she and her family uploaded a “disastrous” YouTube video last week.
And now, things have gotten even worse as trolls on the internet have resorted to sending her death threats, making her reach the point where she’s had to address the issue via an emotional video…
And it’s all thanks to a YouTube video this week that drew in criticism from fans.
And it included a special guest and close friend, James Charles.
And was met with almost immediate backlash from viewers taken aback by the “disgusting” and “unacceptable” behaviour shown by Charli and her sister Dixie.
The sixteen-year-old gained fame for her self-titled channel and has gone on to earn huge popularity for her dances with both viral TikTok dance routines and original choreography.
And her viral fame spawned other projects including a podcast which she hosts with her nineteen-year-old sister Dixie.
But the latest video has caused quite a stir.
And to kick off the series, beauty influencer James Charles joined the family for a very luxurious dinner that was provided by a personal chef.
But it didn’t take long for viewers to notice a few little things.
At one point, Dixie even ran away to throw up after trying a snail.
It was all very dramatic, might I add.
And that it was instead James Charles calling them out.
At one point Charli complained about not reaching 100 million followers on TikTok in less than a year, despite being the most followed person on the platform.
“Ugh, I wish I had more time,” Charli said while discussing the family’s successful year. “‘Cos imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”
James responded: “Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?”
They don’t like certain foods and complain about little things. Others even suggested that there are people out there that actually deserve to be “canceled” for their behavior and people should focus on them instead.
So much so, she has now lost a whopping 500,000 following the backlash.
Her followers are dropping as quickly as flies.
It got so bad that Charli broke down on her Instagram live video on Thursday crying her eyes out because people were repeatedly telling her to kill herself all over what has been described as a “misunderstanding.”
“All of this is happening because [of] a misunderstanding. I just feel like that’s not OK, and if this is the community that I’m in and the community that I put myself in, I don’t know if I wanna do that anymore.”
“I know that this is gonna be a huge joke to whoever sees it, but like, at the end of the day, just, like, be nice,” she continued, referencing death threats she has received. “I feel like it’s not that hard, and you can say whatever. You can say I’m disrespectful, you can say I don’t have basic human decency, but at the end of the day, I’m still a person.”
This is in reference to the fact that she was “complaining” about not reaching the 100 million follower mark as some people accused her of only thinking of them as a number and not people.
“My team knows I throw up a lot. I throw up at the smell, the thought, or the taste of anything,” she claimed. “So, when they saw the snails, they were like, ‘Oh, let’s get her and try to see if we can get a reaction out of her.’ I love [our] chef, and I would never disrespect him in any way,” she explained.
“This charli situation is NOT sitting right with me,” he tweeted. “100M followers in one year & y’all expect her to know how to be a perfect role model? Death threats because she’s a picky eater & made a joke about a milestone? 30+ year olds dragging someone half their age?”
The toxicity of cancel culture. While there are some people out there who are simply horrible people who are racist, homophobic, sexist, and just plain mean, causing havoc on the internet, it seems as though people find it easier to just pick on teenagers who don’t like eating snails?
I don’t know anyone that loves eating snails, let alone sixteen year olds!
Grow up and find something more productive to do.
Choose your words carefully.
