international.perdananews.com – Charli D’Amelio cried in a livestream after nearly 1 million TikTok users unfollowed her. TikTok users were outraged by Charli D’Amelio this week, and she’s lost nearly 1 million followers on the platform so far. It’s a drop in the ocean as far as her TikTok stardom is concerned — she still has a following of over 98 million — but it’s the mean comments that she’s struggling with, D’Amelio said in a tearful livestream Thursday.
Looks like Charli D’Amelio was dancing too close to the sun. The 16-year-old TikTok star has lost over 1 million followers in the past several hours following backlash to a YouTube video. She responded to the hate in a tearful Instagram Live Thursday morning, explaining the “misunderstanding.” It all started after Charli and her family (sister Dixie, mom Heidi, and dad Marc) continued to expand on Charli’s TikTok fame with a family YouTube channel. This week, they kicked off a new “Dinner With the D’Amelios” series where they invite over a “mystery guest.”
First up is none other than 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 (you know, when they’re not at BOA Steakhouse). The video generated a wave of backlash simply because the D’Amelio sisters do not know how to act. Charli D’Amelio cried
D’Amelio went live on her Instagram page to talk to her followers about the criticism. A YouTube video was posted on her family’s channel on November 16, in which some characterized her behavior as “rude,” “entitled,” and “ungrateful.”
D’Amelio tearfully said it was all ‘one huge misunderstanding’ Charli D’Amelio cried
While talking to her dinner guest James Charles in the video, D’Amelio appears to complain about not hitting 100 million followers on TikTok within a year. Her sister Dixie also received criticism on social media and in YouTube comments for acting disgusted at a meal cooked by a private chef.
In D’Amelio’s livestream, she said she wanted to talk to her fans because it was “all just one huge misunderstanding” and she never meant to come across as arrogant.
“It’s completely blown out of proportion,” she said. “No matter what I say, no matter how I handle any of this, people are still going to think what they’re going to think and that’s fine, because those are the people who, in the long run, weren’t going to be there for me at the end of the day, and that’s fine, I understand that.”
She added that she was genuinely sorry, and “it wasn’t something where I truly meant to be hurtful or truly meant to put anyone down.”
