TikTok’s most-followed star, Charli D’Amelio, has quickly deleted a tearful post to the platform responding to the hateful comments she gets on social media.

It’s no secret that the top online personalities frequently receive hate messages from trolls, commenting on their appearances, actions or manner in a derogatory way. It’s no new creation but, with the sharp rise of very young influencers through platforms such as TikTok, it’s growing more prominent than ever.

It’s also well-known what kind of effect the comments of trolls can have on influencers, potentially taking a huge on toll on their mental health, as evidenced in a heartbreaking video from beauty YouTuber Imogenation posted barely two days before Charli’s emotional plea.

Charli is usually very lighthearted with her content and her good nature often prevails.

With over 50 million followers on TikTok, Charli D’Amelio has more of a platform than many of us could ever imagine, but with that comes even more people that can send her hate or disrespectful messages, as shown in the now-deleted TikTok.

Although she has spoken out in the past about how she deals with the hate she receives, at only 16 years old, it can be overwhelming.

The deleted TikTok displayed a compilation of the hateful comments she receives on a daily basis, repeating “I’m just a kid” as the messages quickly fly through the screen.

The caption suggests that people excuse the hate by telling Charli that “you asked for this,” likely to do with her “asking for” her newfound level of celebrity and suggesting that she should accept it because it’s just part of the experience.

She goes on to say that she is a person and she has feelings, adding “you don’t have to like me but these things hurt.”

Online hate continues to be a huge issue for celebrities of any nature, not just social media stars, but the fact that D’Amelio rose to prominence at the tender age of 15 and, now barely 16, is posting videos in tears because of the comments she receives, is suggestive of a deeper issue.

Unfortunately, it does seem to be a side effect of having a huge platform, as many will attest, and right now there seems to be almost no way of putting an end to it, no matter how many lives it affects.

Charli has not yet commented on the issue elsewhere or explained why the TikTok has been deleted.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
