It’s no secret that TikTok’s most followed creator, Charli D’Amelio, loves her Dunkin’ coffee — and the star has finally gotten her very own drink on the Dunkin’ Donuts menu that fans can order for themselves.

Charli D’Amelio has a long and storied relationship with Dunkin’, often proclaiming her love for the popular coffee / donut chain in her Tweets and TikToks (we can’t forget about the time she was deprived of her favorite coffee brand when she was recovering from surgery, either).

D’Amelio even considered partnering with the coffee shop in the past, writing in a December 2019 Tweet, “I would really like a Dunkin’ brand deal. I drink 1-3 of their cold brew coffees a day, so…”

Considering her very public love for the chain, it comes as little surprise that she’s officially partnered up with them for an exclusive drink of her own creation.

Appropriately named “The Charli,” D’Amelio’s signature Dunkin’ drink consists of a cold brew coffee with whole milk and three pumps of caramel swirl.

However, fans who hope to get in on the exclusive bev had better act fast — the drink is only available at nationwide Dunkin’ locations for a limited time, starting on September 2.

That’s not all; fans who use the Order Ahead option on the Dunkin’ App to snag a Medium Charli will receive 100 bonus points, getting them halfway to a free drink perk.

D’Amelio is also taking over Dunkin’s social media channels for the entire month of September, allowing fans to get exclusive content from the TikTok star, as well as a special AR Instagram filter, stickers and other goodies!

Of course, you can’t have Charli without her love for dance, and that’s exactly what Dunkin’ is doing. Beginning on September 9, the coffee chain is kicking off a special contest, tasking fans with recreating “an iconic Charli x Dunkin’ moment” on Instagram using the hashtag #CharliXDunkinContest.

Winners of the contest will be announced on September 19, which also happens to be National Dance Day, earning the opportunity to virtually hang with TikTok’s undisputed queen and get tips on how to go viral online.

There’s a lot to unpack here — but there’s no question that Dunkin’ is certainly delivering for Charli’s fanbase. Let us know what you think of the drink and if you’ll be participating in the CharliXDunkinContest on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!

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.
