TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has hired law enforcement to protect her, following threats on her personal safety and even swattings directed at her personal residence.

16-year-old Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator, best known for her viral dance moves and positive, upbeat personality (drama with Chase Hudson aside).

Despite her good vibes and generally unproblematic content, D’Amelio has been met with several concerning incidents regarding her personal safety — so much so that she’s even hired police to protect her.

As reported by TMZ, it seems that the D’Amelio family has been swatted on several occasions, although that doesn’t seem to be the only reason she’s hired a personal security detail to watch the property.

The report also claims that Charli received quite a fright on July 8, after “someone” threatened to show up at her home — although they didn’t end up following through.

It’s no small speculation that the individual in question could be influencer “Lovely Peaches,” who has made several threats against Charli’s personal safety — including allegedly hiring a 30-year-old man to sexually assault the TikTok star.

That’s not all; Peaches even posted photos seemingly taken from outside of the D’Amelio residence, claiming that she and the man she’d hired were going to follow through on their threat.

Posts from Instagram show that Peaches claimed she was outside of Charli D’Amelio’s home.

While this thankfully never happened, it makes perfect sense that the D’Amelio crew has hired security as a precaution.

Dixie D’Amelio claimed that the family was well aware of the situation surrounding Lovely Peaches’ threats in a paparazzi interview, although declined to comment further on the concerning matter.

Luckily, TMZ has likewise reported that law enforcement is investigating the threat that was sent toward Charli — and whether or not it involves Peaches, fans can rest easy knowing that something is being done about the shocking situation.

As we all know, fame isn’t a cake walk, and celebrities’ personal space and privacy are often overlooked by both over eager fans and those wishing harm on them. The 16-year-old is no different, and is facing disgusting threats in spite of her young age.

Fans rally as Sykkuno, Dream, and more are snubbed by Twitter Verified

On December 2, Twitter rolled out a huge mass verification, where many accounts of top gamers, streaming personalities and more were finally verified after a rather long wait. But some fans were left frustrated when Twitter seemed to gloss over popular creators like Sykkuno, Dream, and CallMeCarson.

Verification on Twitter is often regarded as a huge achievement for rising creators. That little blue tick is generally a marker that someone is making it big, leading to frequent campaigns led by fans for their favorite creators to be granted verified status.

Twitter decided to grant several wishes all at once on December 2 when they verified a huge number of accounts in one go. One such account was that of Corpse Husband, a YouTuber who has been on the platform for a few years, but experienced an unprecedented surge in popularity this year following the Among Us hype.

Corpse Husband is a wildly popular YouTuber who skyrocketed to fame for his Among Us content, although he also narrates True Horror stories and creates music.

But not everyone was celebrating, as among the chaos of fans and creators rejoicing at their new-found verification, some big names were left behind.

Popular streamer Sykkuno trended on the site with the hashtag ‘VerifySykkuno’ as fans vented their frustration about the snub. “Do it, he deserves it,” one fan wrote.

Fellow streamer Valkyrae tweeted a message in support of the internet campaign, which Sykkuno even retweeted from his account.

Other popular creators that found themselves snubbed by the Twitter Verified account included Minecraft YouTuber Dream, and comedy YouTuber CallMeCarson, who each tweeted their own tongue-in-cheek messages calling out Twitter.

Amid the disarray, instead of verifying YouTuber Karl Jacobs’ account, they accidentally verified the wrong Karl Jacobs with just 200 followers, leading to an onslaught of replies from fellow creators finding the bizarre situation hilarious, including Mr Beast.

While this was one of the biggest verification sprees recently, there is no doubt that another one will be right around the corner.

Fans of the huge creators who were snubbed this time around may be in for a slightly longer wait, but with creators like Corpse Husband getting that coveted blue tick, people are getting their hopes up for the next line of verified creators.
