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.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
