TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has come forward with an apology for fans in wake of drama that shook up the fanbase, after she accused ex-boyfriend Lil Huddy of cheating on her with fellow influencer Nessa Barret.

This week has been a huge one for TikTok news, with D’Amelio accidentally setting off ‘dramageddon’ after shading ex-boyfriend Chase Hudson on social media and even unfollowing him across all platforms.

Things kicked up a notch after she seemingly confirmed rumors that he’d cheated on her with Nessa Barret, which set off a slew of criticism against the Sway House star.

Once Hudson shot back with his own accusations of infidelity against other TikTok personalities, the entire ecosystem of influencers on the app appeared to go down in flames, with creator Jaden Hossler even driving to the Sway House to confront Lil Huddy’s “lies.”

The TikTok sphere caught fire after Charli D’Amelio appeared to accuse ex-boyfriend Chase Hudson of cheating on her with fellow creator Nessa Barret.

Considering the huge fiasco that arose from this, D’Amelio took to Instagram to explain her thoughts on the subject, admitting that she felt “guilty” about the entire situation.

“The drama that has happened in the last few days was handled completely immaturely,” she began. “Myself included. It should not have happened online, and it breaks my heart to see the people that I love get hate. It makes me feel so guilty that I had any part [of it].”

“I apologize for what I said,” she continued, wiping away tears. “I was extremely hurt, and I felt betrayed. So, I did what I had to do to make myself feel better, but I know that was not the right thing to do, and I will make sure that does not happen again.”

Thus far, fans are showing ample support to the 16-year-old TikTok queen and congratulating her for her handling of a situation that has taken social media by storm.

D’Amelio’s tearful Instagram live stream follows the return of TikToker Addison Rae, who similarly came forward with an apology to her own fans via Twitter, after she was embroiled in racism accusations.

Hudson has yet to comment on Charli’s statement at the time of writing.

Pokimane reveals plans for Twitch VODs after DMCA takedowns

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has revealed her plans for her Twitch VODs, after many creators on the platform, including some of the very biggest, were hit with DMCA takedown notifications over content in their back-catalog.

On October 21, some of the most popular names on the platform revealed that they have been getting these DMCA notifications, with people such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and more finding that clips and VODs from past broadcasts have been deleted.

Obviously, in recent months there have been issues with streamers using copyrighted music on their stream, with many opting to stop so as to avoid any legal issues, but now their past content is being sifted through and checked, and the results are wiping out some of these creators’ favorite moments on stream.

While many streamers are doing all they can to keep their content on their Twitch channel available, Pokimane has revealed her plans for past VODs.

Pokimane has been streaming full-time since 2017, but may have to remove a lot of her content to avoid DMCA takedown requests.

After a viewer told Poki that fellow streamer Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid was to delete all of his VODs he’s built up over the years, she suggested that the same might be the case for her own channel.

“Lirik’s going to delete all his VODs? Well, guess what, it’s not just Lirik,” she told her viewers during her October 22 stream.

She continued: “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

Of course, there will be many top streamers considering that reality right now: that the content they’ve put out over however many years could simply be erased due to the music being played in the background.

Some content creators have already started taking down old VODs and deleting clips, and Pokimane may be just one of many that do so to avoid being banned from the platform altogether. We might see some creators start transferring their content to YouTube, but this would likely require a Herculean effort, too.

At the time of writing, Pokimane’s VODs haven’t been wiped from her channel.
