Charli D’Amelio is losing followers quickly. The TikTok star, 16, is under f!re after posting a video to the D’Amelio family YouTube channel.
What was supposed to be a fun-filled family dinner, with food that was prepared in-house by YouTuber and private chef Aaron May and James Charles, turned into a neg-ative simply because, according to Twitter, the D’Amelio sisters did not know how to act.
It all started when Charli started making faces behind May’s back as he described the menu, which was plant-based paella and a classic Valencia paella with shrimp, chicken, and snails.
But it turned wo-rse when the family was actually served the meal. Charli’s sister Dixie then picked up a snail with her fingers, made a d!sgusted face, interrupted Charles to ask, “What is it?” But after May explains that snails bring “good luck and good fortune,” Dixie tries it, ga-gs, and then runs outside to throw up.
Upon her return, Dixie sla-ms the chef, “You have a child…Like, what do you think is gonna happen?” Charli later asked May for “d!no nuggets” instead of the meal he prepared.
Twitter also had a problem with Charli complaining 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.”
The video was quickly met with contr-oversy and even dropped Charli’s followers, she effectively lost over 1M followers in the hours after the post. Charli later addressed the ha-te, “People just, like, bla*antly d!srespecting the fact that I’m still a human being is not okay at all,” she said through te-ars.
“You can ha-te 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.”

Following the backla-sh, Charles defe-nded the sisters. Speaking on Charli, the makeup guru wrote to Twitter, “This Charli situation is NOT sitting right with me… 100M followers in one year, and y’all expect her to know how to be a perfect role model? De-ath thre-ats because she’s a p!cky eater and made a joke about a milestone?” He added, “30+-year-olds dra-gging someone half their age? Feels familiar.”
