Sixteen-Year-old TikTok star Charli D’Amelio found herself canceled by internet users on Thursday, November 19. As per reports, she lost over one million followers on TikTok in the aftermath of a YouTube video. Charli and her family (sister Dixie, mom Heidi, and dad Marc), on the family YouTube channel, started a new series called ‘Dinner With the D’Amelios’. 

In the first episode that came this week on November 17, the guest was controversial beauty blogger James Charles. The food was prepared in-house by YouTuber and chef Aaron May, who has been working as a private chef for the D’Amelios.

In the video, Charli reportedly made faces behind the chef’s back as he described the menu, a plant-based paella and a classic Valencia paella with shrimp, chicken, and snails. During the meal, Dixie reportedly picked up a snail with her fingers and made a disgusted face. She ate it, gagged, and ran outside to throw up. When Dixie came back, she confronted chef May about the snails. “You have a child,” she said. “Like, what do you think is gonna happen?” 

Later in the video, as the D’Amelios discussed their 2020 achievements, Charli complained that she won’t hit 100 million followers on TikTok on the anniversary of hitting 1 million. “Ugh, I wish I had more time,” she said. “Because imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.” James Charles asked, “Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?”



 

Even as Charli was inching towards 100 million followers, in the aftermath of this video, fans began criticizing her and unfollowing her. People called the sisters “ungrateful” and “snobby”. As per Vulture, by Thursday morning, Charli’s follower count had dropped by more than half a million. Charli went on Instagram Live to address the situation and the criticism she’s received. She called the whole thing a “misunderstanding”. While talking about the messages (and alleged death threats) she’s received, Charli began to cry.

“People just, like, blatantly disrespecting the fact that I’m still a human being is not okay at all,” she said while crying. “You can hate on me for whatever I’ve done, but the fact that all of this is happening because of a misunderstanding, I just feel like that’s not okay. And if this is the community that I’m in and the community that I put myself in, I don’t know if I want to do that anymore.” Despite this, her follower count continued to drop, reportedly losing more than one million followers so far. 

One Twitter user shared a video of Charli losing followers on TikTok, saying, “BREAKING NEWS THAT WILL MOST DEFINITELY CHANGE YOUR LIFE: Charli D’Amelio falls under 99M followers, effectively losing close to 500,000 followers in the past few hours.”

Other Twitter users continued to criticize her. One said, “Charli and Dixie D'amelio are so ungrateful and rude to their chef, I don’t want to hear ‘oh their kids’ Dixie is 19 and Charli is 16, they should know better, I’m 12 and I know I should be rude and ungrateful, they are finally showing their true colors.” One Twitter user said, “Not Charli begging for more followers when she already in the millions ... my a** sitting here with 2.”

One Twitter user said, “for the record so everyone knows: this is what happens when u put ungrateful white rich kids on a pedestal for doing the absolute bare minimum....glad we cleared that up just now.” One Twitter user said, “I'm sorry to tell you, but #charliedamelio is a very rude and a nasty person! She treated me like garbage in highschool :(. I am very sad that people gave her such a huge platform and her to act so innocent! I think all of you saw the video of her telling how she doesn’t like…” adding, “Her 95 million followers like excuse me that is a big number of fans and followers all over world! Like I said I am very sad how people gave her a BIG platform.”



 



 



 



 



 

James Charles tweeted of the incident and said, “this charli situation is NOT sitting right with me... 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? feels familiar.”
