Internet star Charli D’Amelio has responded to backlash from rapper Blueface, after the music artist complained of certain TikTokers failing to show up to film for a music video.

American rapper Blueface is combining the music industry with social media stars, as revealed in a series of Instagram comments in mid-February.

Having notably asked members of the famous TikTok group “Hype House” to feature in one of his music videos, Instagram page “TikTokRoom” noted that the internet celebs were nowhere to be found in the production, which prompted a scathing response from member Thomas Petruo: “Just not doing something for free.”

TikTok star Thomas Petruo claims that money was the deciding factor for not showing up to Blueface’s music video shoot.

However, Blueface took issue with this claim, arguing that Petruo and other members of the Hype House should “get a real job if you wanna get paid.”

“Wake up every day and TikTok for free, but they wanna charge a cryp,” the rapper wrote.

“Smh I was really just tryna look out, get y’all some going in real life so maybe one day y’all can change somebody, but you not there yet.”

Blueface called out TikTokers for failing to show to shoot a music video and seemed to insult social media as a profession.

Blueface’s comments drew ample speculation towards other members of the TikTok squad, who took to Instagram to clarify why they’d failed to appear in the video.

Charli D’Amelio, one of TikTok’s most popular creators with over 27.9 million followers on the platform, also spoke out on the situation, claiming that she wasn’t aware she’d signed up to be part of the project.

“It was never about the money,” she explained. “We never had any further contact other than a comment. I just didn’t know any details, so we wouldn’t have known where to be or when. No disrespect meant ever.”

Charli D’Amelio claims that she was never notified about the music video shoot and that compensation was never a factor in the issue.

TikTok star Addison Rae also commented on the issue: “Wait what? I so would have been in it for free… he would be doing us a favor! I was in New York City when he filmed it. I didn’t know this is what was said, ugh.”

TikTok star “WhoisAddison” claimed that she would have been involved with the music video for free.

It looks like what Petruo claimed was a money matter was actually just an issue of miscommunication instead.

That said, there’s no telling if Blueface will look to link up with the group in the future, considering his pointed response to their “no-shows.”

Logan Paul reacts to Jake calling him a “fake fighter” before Floyd Mayweather bout

YouTube star Logan Paul is set to throw down with undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather this February — but little brother Jake Paul isn’t a fan of their upcoming bout, even calling his sibling a “fake fighter.”

The Paul brothers have unexpectedly shifted from their careers as top-tier YouTubers into white-collar boxers. Ever since August 2018, the two have dedicated their time to training and scoring high-profile matches; and Logan may have taken the cream of the crop.

On December 6, 2020, it was announced that Logan would be fighting 50-0 pro boxer Floyd Mayweather in a “Super Exhibition” match in February 2021. This news seemed to overshadow Jake’s 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson a week prior, which may have influenced his thoughts on his older brother’s upcoming match.

“My brother is f**ked,” Jake taunted in an interview with TMZ. “It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout. You know, my brother’s a fake fighter. I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1, I’m 3-0.”

A week later, Logan has finally responded to his little bro’s scathing words — and it’s safe to say that he’s a little confused as to where the venom is coming from, although he’s completely unfazed by the insults.

“I’m like, little brothers up to some s**t, like he wants to get some attention for a sec, go for it,” he said of the matter. “But I fully support Jake — whatever drama he wants to stir or create, it really doesn’t bother me. ‘You’re a fake boxer.’ Okay. Let’s box, because Jake is the kid that gets beat up by my sparring partners.”

“I’ve become like rubber sheet metal, dude,” he continued. “In this fight, everyone’s sayin’ a lot of things, and for good reason. I’m fighting Floyd f**king Mayweather! So I’ve literally become immune to every — I’ve heard it all.”

(Topic begins at 47:58)

Jake isn’t the only one unsure of his brother’s chances; even Mike Tyson claimed that Floyd would “beat [Logan’s] f***kin’ ass” when it comes time for their match.

While the odds are certainly against Paul, there’s still a chance that he might surprise his critics and go the distance against his formidable opponent.
