Sisters and internet stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators — but even they aren’t immune to mean comments, as they revealed in a series of Tweets hitting back at “body shaming.”

Despite being TikTok’s most followed creator, competitive dancer Charli D’Amelio has spoken at length about the hardships that come with internet stardom, including feeling self-conscious about one’s outward appearance.

In a burst of positivity, Charli retweeted a photo of her friends on the beach and complimented them in her caption, rating them all a 10/10.

However, she continued with a message to all her fans, encouraging them to look in the mirror and compliment themselves and reminding her followers that they’re all beautiful in their own way.

“F it, we are all 10/10s, and by all I mean everyone, because we are all special and perfect in our ways,” she wrote. “That what makes us so incredible, and let’s tell each other that more often.”

“We should go to our nearest mirror and compliment ourselves,” she added in another Tweet. “It is what needs to be done.”

Charli isn’t the only one speaking out about the matter, either, as older sister Dixie also wrote a lengthy Twitter thread about body shaming, admitting that she has been affected by mean comments about her appearance in the past.

“...body shaming is something that so many people deal with and I struggled with [it] for a long time,” she wrote. “I finally know that I can’t change myself to make everyone happy, but for people reading comments… and thinking that being ‘too’ big or too small changes their overall ‘rate’ is not healthy.”

She ended her post by encouraging TikTok users to stop “speaking negatively about someone’s body type” on the platform, calling such comments “toxic” — and she’s not alone, with many fans agreeing with her sentiment in the replies.

From dealing with angry fans to lies from past friends and even online trolls, it’s safe to say that Charli and Dixie have seen the worst of the internet’s behavior.

Thanks to their fame, however, their body-positive messages are reaching a huge amount of viewers as they continue to grow in popularity on an ever-booming platform.
