TikTok star Charli D’Amelio came under scrutiny after claims surfaced that she’d purportedly liked “shady” comments criticising fellow creator Avani Gregg — and now, the queen of the app has finally responded to the accusations.

Fans’ recent suspicion of Charli began earlier this week, after a TikTok user leaked what appeared to be a screenshot from the app, which showed that the youngest D’Amelio sibling had purportedly liked a critical comment about Avani under one of her own videos.

“So she’s just gonna replace Avani?” the comment read. “Idk, kinda here for it.”

A screenshot and screen recording of a comment D’Amelio had allegedly liked that shaded fellow creator Avani quickly went viral across her fanbase.

That isn’t the only reason viewers were becoming skeptical; the comment she’d liked quickly disappeared from the internet, with some arguing that the entire ordeal had been faked (while others argued that D’Amelio had removed the statement, herself as a way to avoid drama).

The comment, made in 2019, bodes eerily familiar to recent drama surrounding Addison Rae’s own scandal liking comments critical of Charli, which she explained was due to her bad mental state at the time and had occurred before she’d even met the TikTok star.

While Avani later came out and blasted her haters on TikTok, Charli had yet to speak out on the subject for a few days, until paparazzi interviewed the star and brought up the topic.

D’Amelio threw her head back in laughter after being asked about the situation, and claimed that she and Avani are good friends — although she didn’t answer if the screenshot was real or merely a fake.

“For that, I’d have to say Avani is probably one of my closest friends out here,” she clarified in the interview upon being prompted with the controversy. “She knows that I love her, and I know that she loves me, and I feel like that’s all that really matters.”

While fans may never know if D’Amelio’s liked comment was real or not, it seems that she and Avani are on good terms, regardless of the past drama between them — rendering Charli once again free from drama (for now, at least).

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
