The D’Amelio family have started giving way insane amounts of money to their fans after winning Mr. Beast’s Creator Games trivia contest on YouTube stirred up some controversy.

Charli D’Amelio, the TikToker who drove the family to stardom, has more than 104 million followers at the time of writing. Her sister Dixie has 47.8 million followers. As a result, the family as a whole has taken part in big online trends.

In October, the normally drama-free family found themselves at the center of online controversy after winning Mr. Beast’s Creator Games, scoring a massive $300,000 for their fans in the process.

Many critics accused the D’Amelio’s of cheating, referring to moments during the broadcast where Dixie appeared to be looking at her phone for answers to the Games’ trivia questions or claiming that the girls’ parents looked up the answers for them (who had initially not been invited to participate).

Afterward, on their podcast 2 Chix, the sisters hit back at the accusations, with Charli adding, “I feel like that was just a big misunderstanding. People also think we’re keeping the money, which is 100% not true.”

In a video, on December 28 the family stated that they would be donating the cash directly to subscribers of their family YouTube channel over the course of January.

Now they have finally started to roll out their winnings to their fans, posting the social media handles of the winners online. In the first installment, the D’Amelio family tweeted “As you may have heard we won Mr. Beast’s Creator Games trivia contest on YouTube. We won $300K to be given to our YouTube subscribers.

“We decided to give $10K a day for the month of Jan. Congratulations to the first group of our $10K a day winners. More to come this week!”

Now that the first ten winners are announced, over the upcoming 20 days left of January, one lucky subscriber of the D’Amelio Family will receive $10,000 each day. All you need to do to score a chance at winning is to be subscribed to the D’Amelio Family YouTube channel.

Virtual streamer CodeMiko banned from Twitch for third time

Popular virtual streamer CodeMiko has been banned from Twitch for the third time, leaving some fans asking if this is a permanent ban. 

Over the years, Twitch streamers have come up with different ways to stand out from the crowd instead of just being world-class at certain games. Some have ramped up production in a major way and you can’t really take your eyes off it.

That includes VTubers and virtual streamers too, who use a digital avatar, editing, and even in some cases, a motion capture suit, to replace themselves on-screen and take on a different persona. 

In the last few weeks, Codemiko – a streamer who takes the VTuber concept to a whole new level – has been getting massive numbers on Twitch. However, she’s now been banned, yet again.

The ban came on January 19 after StreamerBans, who tracks all the different bans – temporary or permanent – on Twitch, tweeted that CodeMiko had been suspended by Twitch. 

The reason for the ban, or its length, is unknown but some fans were quick to speculate on the reason. Some suggested that it was because she used the word Simp – which was recently banned by Twitch. 

Others noted that in a previous stream, where she was interviewing fellow streamer PayMoneyWubby, Codemiko was incredibly drunk and could have been banned for that. Twitch does have some strict rules around drinking on stream, especially if you get out of hand and overindulge. 

There’s no way of confirming just why she’s banned, or how long the ban will last unless the streamer reveals it herself. Twitch typically does not comment on individual bans.

The only thing she’s posted regarding the ban was the ‘sadge’ meme.

This would be her third ban, previously being banned twice in September of 2020.

However, a streamer has to be banned three times within a three month period to rack up a permanent ban, so, she’ll probably be back at some point in the near future.
