Charli D’Amelio has revealed to her 71.7 million TikTok followers that she recently underwent surgery for a breathing issue which stopped her from attending dance classes.

The 16-year-old is TikTok’s top creator and grew to fame for lip-syncing, dancing, and collaborating with other famous creators such as Chase Hudson. Outside of TikTok Charli is also a competitive dancer.

In a TikTok video posted on Thursday, Charli showed herself in a hospital with tape around her nose and gauze underneath with some blood.

The caption says: “Surgery is done and I am so beyond excited that I was finally able to fix my breathing!!!! And soon I will be able to be in dance classes again!!”

Hundreds of thousands of users commented wishing her well including singer Charli Puth who wrote: “I did this surgery too, it changed my life. The craziest part is when they take the stints out and you can breathe perfectly for the first time.”

Other TikTok stars who expressed their sympathies included onlyjayus and gabrielabee.

The video currently has more than 30 million views after only being up for 14 hours, and has more than 7.5 million likes.

In April, Charli first let her followers know about her breathing problems via Twitter. She wrote: “Fun story time so I broke my nose in august and ever since then I have had breathing problems in my right nostril.

“I was supposed to have surgery in November and to fix it but then I started having problems in my left nostril and now I can barely breathe out of my nose at all”

Charli was recently involved in some explosive drama between TikTok’s biggest stars after she revealed that ex-boyfriend Chase “lilhuddy” Hudson had cheated on her when they were dating. Chase wrote a long apology on Instagram earlier this week and said he wanted to set a “better example” for his followers.


xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
