TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have finally responded to the drama with Ellie Zeiler and her dad, after the back and forth “shade” led to both sides receiving criticism earlier in the year.

Charli and Dixie have become two of the biggest creators on TikTok, boasting over 140 million followers combined on the app, with plenty of others trying to follow in their footsteps.

Fellow TikTok star Ellie Zeiler also saw a massive rise in popularity in 2020. However, due to her resemblance to the youngest D’Amelio sister, she received backlash for her efforts, with some even accusing her of copying Charli.

The comparisons quickly led to both TikTok stars shading each other online. It even went as far as Ellie’s dad, Rick Zeiler, jumping in with some shots aimed at the D’Amelio family on TikTok.

While it has been quite a few months since their back and forth came to end, the D’Amelio sisters recently opened up on the feud with Ellie, during the latest episode of their “2 Chix” podcast.

Charli initially revealed that she and Ellie had since become friends off-camera, even making a joke out of the copying drama, “Love her. She’s me if I had any sense of style.”

Dixie revealed just how the drama between the TikTok stars even kicked off, “I never had a problem with her, I think her family was dealing with the same thing we were, and then her dad tried to react in a way that a dad would and be protective of his daughter, same way our dad would.”

“We kinda took offense, well I took offense to that” she admitted, revealing that the online comments got out of hand, “and was like, what the heck why is he saying that.”

Dixie and Charli added that it took them a while to see it from Ellie’s perspective, claiming that they are now friends and have squashed any problems that previously existed.

“She blew up and she’s getting hate for how she did it, we get hate for how we did it.” Dixie explained, “even though we did it in different ways, it doesn’t matter, we’re all still in the same position.”

While their problems with Ellie seemed to be resolved, Charli has found herself in even more drama, after responding to a leaked recording of Zoe Laverne mocking her.

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.
