The most-followed creator on TikTok, Charli D’Amelio, was surprised to see one of her uploads on August 16 deleted by the platform, and fans speculate that it was because it was “too revealing.”

Charli boasts a mammoth 80 million followers on TikTok, and keeps those fans entertained with a constant stream of videos, posting multiple each day.

The majority of her videos are innocent clips of her dancing or lip-syncing, either solo or with one of her many famous friends. Her sister, Dixie, is also a TikTok superstar in her own right.

Charli’s TikTok deleted?

On August 16, Charli has posted another series of videos, but one of them is no longer available on her page. With each video regularly attracting upwards of 20 million views, it didn’t take fans long to notice the disappearance.

At first, the presumption was just that Charli herself had deleted the video, perhaps not happy with it in some way. But, she later confirmed that it was the platform that had removed the video, not her, to her fans’ surprise.

Simply tweeting “TikTok deleted my post from today #sad”, Charli made clear she wasn’t behind the takedown.

What wasn’t surprising though, was that fans had already downloaded it and saved the video before it was removed.

A user posted it in response, showing the video in question was Charli dancing in a swimsuit in her kitchen.

The video immediately made fans speculate that TikTok may have deemed the video too revealing.

TikTok’s community guidelines lay out the rules for what content is not permitted. There are also even stricter rules for content featuring minors, which technically, Charli would fall under, as she is only 16.

However, the video in question is not the first and only video where Charli, or indeed many other TikTok creators, have been dressed in bathing wear. So it’s unclear why this video, in particular, was deleted.

After an onslaught of hateful comments, David Dobrik has responded to the backlash he faced for claiming that he “hates nature” on his Views podcast with Jason Nash.

As a huge YouTuber known for massive giveaways and wholesome content, Dobrik’s comments, if at all negative, can cause a stir among his fans. In the episode in question, Dobrik explains at length why he “hates nature,” and how outdoor activities really don’t do it for him.

“I cannot describe to you how much I f***ing hate nature,” Dobrik said. “I never knew I could be so angry at something. I was hiking in the mountains, and everybody I saw, I was just getting angry at. I was like, ‘Why are you here?’ I was so mad!”

“It feels so wrong because everybody loves nature,” he continued. “…what is so cool about something that’s been there… for millions of years! What is so cool about that? …it feels like everything I’ve worked for has been erased. I’m stuck with the dirt and the grass and the leaves.”

Angry commenters described Dobrik as “close-minded”

Angry commenters had a lot to say about his opinions on the world around him and on his attitude about something as mundane as nature.

“I don’t justify it, but now I understand the hate that you get for being so closed-minded and kind of a d**k to your friends or the planet,” one person wrote. “I know that you have done great things like charities and donations. But DUDE, grow up a bit, you live in a bubble.”

(Topic begins at 5:45)

But in the latest episode of Views with fellow YouTuber Jason Nash, they discussed the backlash Dobrik faced and read out Dexerto’s article on the subject.

Dobrik explained that fans misunderstood his intentions: “I said I didn’t like nature and by this, I didn’t mean that I don’t care about the ecosystem where I think you shouldn’t recycle and I think you should litter. It was like I just literally do not care for walks.”

“I wasn’t joking about the actual nature but I was kind of like you guys are gonna really hate me for this. I didn’t think people would actually get mad and people are pissed.”

Since the latest episode has aired, angry commenters are nowhere to be seen. It seems that the adamant defenders of nature walks have been appeased.
