TikTok star Charli D’Amelio got called out by critics after an older video resurfaced, which showed her lipsyncing to a song with the lyrics “count your calories” — but her forthcoming apology post revealed a shocking fact about the influencer.

Charli D’Amelio reigns as the undisputed queen of TikTok, boasting a whopping 85 million followers on the application due to her viral dancing videos and collaborations with other personalities.

However, 16-year-old Charli is no stranger to backlash, having come under fire in the past for a multitude of various offenses in the eyes of critical viewers — but this latest outrage against the TikToker caused her to reveal a major secret about herself.

After an Instagram “stan” page shared a TikTok of Charli lipsyncing to Beach Bunny’s ‘Prom Queen’ — a song with the lyrics “count your calories” — the youngest D’Amelio sibling began to receive some criticism for the video, and responded to the matter in an Instagram Stories post.

However, Charli’s apology wasn’t what haters were expecting; instead, she revealed that she suffers from an eating disorder, and had struggled with speaking out the matter publicly.

“I’ve been afraid to share that I have an eating disorder, but ultimately, I hope that by sharing this, I can help someone else,” she wrote. “I know eating disorders are something that so many people are also battling behind closed doors.”

“To anyone I could have hurt by unintentionally playing a song and not realizing that those lyrics could have triggered you, I deeply and truly apologize,” she added. “I hope you now that I never intended to cause you harm.”

In her apology post, Charli revealed that she suffers from an eating disorder, shocking viewers.

After publishing the statement, many fans came out en masse against the Instagram stan page, claiming that Charli’s video was merely part of an older bandwagon trend and that the lyrics weren’t worth calling her out over in the first place.

Commenters were quick to call out critics for piling on Charli D’Amelio over a song that contained the lyrics, “counting calories.”

Charli isn’t the only TikToker to have recently opened up about her personal struggles, either; Nessa Barrett also admitted she’d been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and depression, marking a careful reminder to internet critics that influencers are also people — even if you only ever see them from behind a cellphone screen.

Californian YouTube Among Us sensation Corpse Husband has apparently appeared out of nowhere, but who exactly is he?

It’s safe to say that every gamer, non-gamer and Youtube fanatic knows about Among Us, the newest party game that sees players attempt to decipher who the impostor is before they brutally murder all of their comrades and win the game.

Thousands of streamers have jumped on the Among Us bandwagon, with names like xQc, Valkyre and Trainwrecks dominating the Among Us Charts. The game has even attracted political figures, namely American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who used the game as a platform to reach out to the gaming youth of today.

On YouTube, however, the Among Us scene rests firmly within the grasp of Corpse Husband (or Corpse, who has become an overnight Among Us sensation. Despite his synonymity with the game though, Corpse has a long and varied streaming past despite only being the tender age of 23.

The underground YouTube star has become an Among Us sensation.

From YouTube spook to Among Us fame

Corpse’s Youtube career began in the dark realms of horror story narration. Citing online CreepyPasta narration channels such as Mr.Nightmare, Be.Buster and Lazy Masquerade as inspiration, Corpse created his own iteration of a horror narration channel, with his distinctive deep voice adding to the spookiness of his videos. This mystery was only amplified by Corpse’s decision to hide his face in the online sphere.

While Corpse’s YouTube still provides every horror fan with a video playground, his most recent Among Us videos have racked up millions of views, blowing his creepier videos out of the YouTube waters in terms of views.

Focusing on how to win the game as the impostor – even if you have admitted you are the impostor – the three current Among Us videos on his channel have earned him a total of 26.5 million views. That’s hardly a number to smirk at.

Being the impostor in Among Us certainly requires the gift of a silver tongue, something that Corpse clearly possesses. It’ll be interesting to see whether his popularity fades as the game slips out of the mainstream media, but judging by his views that doesn’t seem too likely. After all, if you’re not watching him for Among Us right now is the perfect time of year to sit back, relax and be terrified.
