TikTok star Charli DAmelio loses ONE MILLION followers in A DAY after rude food video – Daily Mail

Loading ....

Charli D’Amelio has lost more than 950,000 TikTok followers as she and her older sister Dixie face fierce backlash for their appalling table manners and rude treatment of their personal chef in their new video.

The 16-year-old, who reigns supreme as TikTok’s most-popular star, had more than 99.5 million followers as of Wednesday evening. That number has since plummeted to 98.6 million as she continues to hemorrhage followers. 

Ironically, before the controversy, Charli was just 500,000 followers shy of reaching her goal of 1 million by the end of the year, which she mentioned in the video.

‘I wish I had more time. Imagine if I hit 100 million a year after hitting 1 million,’ she told their dinner guest, YouTube star and beauty influencer James Charles.  

‘Was the 95 million not enough for you?’ James sarcastically replied, and he wasn’t the only one who found the comment as well as her behavior off-putting.     

Throughout the dinner, Charli and Dixie made faces and gagged in response to their chef Aaron May’s offerings. At one point, Dixie, 19, even ran outside to throw up. 

Dixie, whose behavior was arguably more abhorrent, has also been losing followers, about 100,000 since Wednesday. She’s gone from 43.9 million to 43.8 million in less than 24 hours, though those numbers are nothing compared to her sister’s.

The older D’Amelio sister responded to the backlash with a TikTok, insisting people should ‘know the full story’ before criticizing her and sending her hateful comments.

‘My family and I have been working with Chef Aaron May for a couple of months now, working on content for our channel and working on content for his channel, and [we’ve] made an amazing friendship,’ she said. 

‘Before I even get into anything, I’m so grateful for every single person that follows me, every single person I care about, every single person I work with, every single person who works with me because I’m just so grateful for all of the opportunities I’ve had.’

Dixie insisted the reaction to her throwing up at the dinner was taken out of context. She claimed she wasn’t being ‘disrespectful’ toward the chef, saying the video’s final cut doesn’t include the footage of Aaron and her team trying to get her to eat the snail, knowing she has a sensitive stomach.  

‘My team knows I throw up a lot. I throw up at the smell, the thought, or the taste of anything. 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,”‘ she explained. ‘I love [our] chef, and I would never disrespect him in any way.’

Charli has yet to respond to the video, though she tweeted a link to a mental health resource on Thursday, writing: ‘If anyone is struggling please do not hesitate to ask for help! you matter!’

The video in question was the debut of their new Dinner with the D’Amelios series that is being featured on their recently launched family YouTube channel. 

The TikTok stars sat down with their parents, Marc and Heidi, and James, who was their first mystery guest.  

The episode has been trending on YouTube since it was shared on Monday, but many people were less than impressed with what they saw. 

Critics have been taking to the comments to call out Charli and Dixie for their behavior, with many insisting James was the only one with manners at the table.

The meal was prepared by their chef Aaron, who made a traditional paella as well as a vegan version for Heidi. While Marc was introducing Aaron, Charli made faces and sarcastically clapped her hands. She also made faces as he described the meal he was serving them. 

However, Dixie’s behavior was even more appalling, despite her being the older sister. James was obliviously chatting away when she picked a piece of food off of her plate and made faces as she pulled it apart. Dixie then sniffed what was in her hand and mimed gagging. 

‘What is that?’ she mouthed, prompting a confused James to ask what everyone else was laughing at. 

‘What is this?’ Dixie repeated, holding up the piece of food in her hand.  

‘It’s mushroom,’ her dad said, but she wouldn’t let it go. 

Table manners: Dixie made show of eating the snail, but she later said that Aaron and her team talked her into eating it because they knew how she would react

‘No, it’s not! That’s a snail,’ she insisted. 

The chef confirmed that it actually was a snail and Dixie threw her head back in disgust while her sister’s draw dropped. He laughed as she made gagging noises but noted that it’s actually a classic paella ingredient.

Charli put her hand over her mouth as if she were going to vomit while he explained that snails bring ‘good luck and good fortune’ if you eat one. 

Dixie then made a big show of eating the snail, as her mom turned away in disgust, sarcastically saying, ‘Mmm, yummy,’ before immediately turning to the side of the table and gagging. 

Her parents chided her for being dramatic and Heidi yelled at her to excuse herself from the table.

‘Is she being real or is she being dramatic?’ Aaron asked. 

Dixie then ran outside to throw up, which James, unfortunately, witnessed. 

‘Oh, she actually threw up,’ he said, understandably appalled. ‘Eww!’

In the middle of this, Charli rudely asked out loud: ‘Do we have any Dino nuggets?’ 

Dixie cleaned herself up and came back to eat as if nothing had happened — she even reached for a second helping of paella. 

She explained that the snail tasted like ‘chicken’ and was good at first, but there was a salty part that made ‘everything come up.’ She insisted the chef should have known better. 

Not funny: Charli was also accused of being a 'brat' during the dinner. She made faces and sarcastically clapped when her father introduced their chef

‘You have a child — like, what did you think is gonna happen?’ she asked him. ‘Do I have bad luck now? I feel like I need to eat another.’

While Dixie’s vomiting was undoubtedly the most uncomfortable part of the evening, her table manners were also less than desirable. She stuck her fingers in the dessert bowl everyone was eating from and flicked food at her mom.    

The video has been viewed 8.7 million times and earned more than 78,000 comments, though many of them were negative. 

‘This is just sad,’ one critic wrote. ‘It’s a shame nobody taught these girls manners and an even bigger shame we gave them such a big platform.’

‘Bruh they seem spoiled as hell,’ someone else noted. ‘They’re acting like little brats. The poor chef.’ 

‘My mom would’ve slapped me if I acted like that [at] the dinner table,’ another insisted, with many agreeing with him.  

‘I’ve never had a problem with the D’Amelios but their behavior was just disgusting,’ one critic shared. ‘I feel so bad for the chef. They acted so bratty, like… there are people who are struggling to feed their families.’

A number of people pointed out that James was doing a better job of scolding the girls for their bad behavior than their parents were.  

‘James was literally the only mature one here,’ one person wrote. ‘The fact that HE was the one scolding them and not [their] own parents, says a lot.’

‘It’s sad that James was checking them instead of their own parents,’ someone else agreed, while another added: ‘The only person I see that has manners is James Charles. Not even the parents…’

‘I’ve been telling y’all that this family is fake and their true colors are gonna be shown.’ one YouTuber user insisted. 

Charli, who is a competitive dancer from Norwalk, Connecticut, posted her first TikTok in June 2019. She had a number of videos go viral thanks to her dances featuring choreography, montages, and lip-syncs. 

Within a year, she had over 70 million followers and the number continued to climb up until she started losing hundreds of thousands of followers this week. 

And it’s not just Charli who has earned celebrity status on the app; the rest of her family boast millions of followers of their own.  

This has led to some lucrative sponsorships for Charli and Dixie, who have partnered with Hollister and makeup brand Morphe over the past year.
