TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has experienced a rough few days, losing over a million followers after critics took issue with a joke she made during dinner — but now, a fellow influencer is accusing her of using a racial slur in a resurfaced video.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator, at one point reaching well over 99 million followers just this month.

However, the 16-year-old internet superstar has begun to lose followers by the millions, after critics took offense to a joke she made during a family dinner, where she appeared to complain about not reaching 100 million followers in the span of a single year.

She took to Instagram live shortly after the mass unfollowing began, revealing that she’d even been sent death threats over the scandal — but now, a popular YouTuber is accusing Charli of using a racial slur, adding even more fuel to the fire.

Charli D’Amelio has come under fire for a joke she made during an episode of “Dinner with the D’Amelios.”

The YouTuber shared a video that appeared to show Charli and older sister Dixie rapping along to a song that dropped the slur, although the audio appeared to be highly distorted and a fan had zoomed in on Charli’s face.

Charli, having already clapped back at this particular YouTuber before, was quick to shut down the rumors by sharing the original video, which was markedly different than the version that had been spread online.

In the real video, Charli and Dixie sing along to a number of different songs, the audio for which is not distorted, and never drop a slur throughout the video’s entirety.

“If you would like to see Dixie and I dancing with the actual sound, feel free to check out my Instagram story,” Charli said of the situation.

It seems like critics are doing everything they can to shut down the young star’s success, even after she tearfully explained that her 100 million follower “joke” was because she had something special in store for her fans, should she have reached the milestone in time.

Being defended by the likes of James Charles and others, it seems like Charli has a good support system in place — but this drama just goes to show how truly brutal the internet can be when it picks a target.

World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”


After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
