TikTok’s most followed star, 15-year-old Charli D’Amelio, has hit out at those who attempt to body-shame her online in a series of comments made on April 27.

With over 50 million followers on the video platform, D’Amelio has become a global star thanks to her dances and has even moved into YouTube videos to expand her horizons and audience.

Obviously, though, with so many eyes on her, there’s bound to be a lot who aren’t out there to support her but instead try to spread negativity and hate, and Charli decided to address them directly.

D’Amelio has had enough of the body-shaming on TikTok.

“Stop talking about my body,” she pleaded to her Twitter followers late on April 27. “It’s not your place to tell me if I’m losing weight or gaining weight.”

Although her point seemed clear enough, D’Amelio expanded and attempted to spread some positivity, instead. “Why don’t we all just be respectful and understand that we should just be kind and uplift everyone instead of trying to bring others down?”

She added that whether it’s about her, her friends or complete strangers, it’s never okay, and made a simple final plea for those doing it to just stop commenting on people’s weight or physical appearance.

As expected with the internet, the series of tweets was met with mixed responses. While many fans implored her to ignore the trolls and comments and showed support with her plea, there were also some unsavory comments too.

Some responses said that it “comes with the job,” while others simply attempted to call out the “simps” showing support or refusing to be rude about her.

D’Amelio isn’t the first TikTok star to call out body-shaming trolls, as this statement comes shortly after Hype House cohort Addison Rae made similar comments about abuse she receives over her looks.

Neither of the TikTok stars should be facing the abuse or hateful comments but they are standing up to them and handling the unfortunate situation pretty commendably.


TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
