TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio is coming under fire due to the latest episode of her family YouTube series “Dinner with the D’Amelios,” after she appeared to turn her nose up at some snail prepared by her personal chef.

The November 16 YouTube video has gone viral for a number of reasons, especially after Charlie D’Amelio appeared to complain about not reaching 99 million followers within a year of scoring 1 million.

While she’s received her fair share of criticism over the topic, viewers’ eyes have since shifted to Dixie, who is likewise catching flak for her treatment of a dish created by the D’Amelio family chef.

During the episode, their chef — Chef Aaron May — snuck some snail onto Dixie’s plate, and it doesn’t look like the Connecticut native was super jazzed about the ordeal.

Chef Aaron May cooked up a several-course meal for the D’Amelio family — a dinner that has since gone viral for all the wrong reasons.

“What is this?” she asked, looking completely bewildered after poking at the animal on her plate. When Chef May confirmed that it was, indeed, a snail, Dixie made a gagging motion and dramatically leaned away from the table.

“It’s actually an omen of good luck and fortune!” Chef May explained.

Fans were quick to criticize Dixie for her comments on the meal, with many calling her entitled and rude to a qualified chef who had labored in the kitchen to provide them with the luxurious food.

“That was childish, spitting out and throwing up the food saying it was gross right in front of him,” one user wrote.

“This is honestly such a joke,” another said. “James was the only respectful one, poor chef.”

“Dude, y’all are disgusting,” another added. “Charli’s faces and Dixie ‘throwing up’? Be grateful. Some of us can’t have even have dinner every night. Get manners.”

Commenters were quick to lash out at the D’Amelio sisters after Dixie freaked out over some snail on her plate.

Dixie has since responded to the backlash in an Instagram comment, clarifying that her reaction to the snail was all in good fun and that she is sincerely grateful for the hard work of Chef May.

“Chef Aaron May is a close family friend and we love him and everything he does,” she wrote. “…He was standing behind the camera telling me to eat a snail, knowing I would have a reaction. In no way would I ever want to come off as disrespectful, because it was all jokes.”

While some viewers have accepted D’Amelio’s statement, still others are continuing to be critical of the D’Amelio sisters’ table manners.

Chef May has yet to release a public statement on the matter at the time of publication.

Dr Disrespect’s iconic intro mocked by Twitch streamers’ hilarious skit

A couple of Twitch streamers decided to mock Dr Disrespect’s intro with a hilarious skit that poked fun at his over-the-top persona.

Legendary entertainer Dr Disrespect has some of the most outrageous production for any stream in existence. With a long, drawn-out intro accompanied by a highlight reel, the opening seems longer than some Hollywood films.

Normally after the opening sequence, the Two-Time begins his stream by “driving” to The Arena to go play Call of Duty, Apex Legends, or whatever else happens to be on the docket.

This driving sequence ultimately made for good content, and the Twitch duo known as Maximum Underdrive decided to copy it for their own opening.

Dr Disrespect has taken over YouTube since being banned on Twitch.

To kick off their broadcast, one of the duo, known as Clyde, was driving in a red Lamborghini with a stylish purple hazed cityscape in the background.

“Ladies and gentlemen tonight, we are gonna dominate,” he began in a soft-spoken manner similar to that of how Doc begins his broadcasts. “Dominate the competition. They say that the competition is fierce, but we have something they don’t, have. We have velocity, inertia, and savagery.”

This was obviously a reference to Dr Disrespect’s “violence, speed, and momentum.”

“Tonight when I set foot inside that stadium, tonight, ladies and gentlemen, they will all know the name is…” he continued before being cut off by his coworker.

“Clyde? What the hell are you doing?” the coworker asked as the camera cut back to reveal a green screen. “I’ve been looking for you all day, dude. We’ve got sh*t to do. Where did you find this Lambo?”

Eventually, the scene faded to black and the Maximum Underdrive segment began normally with a big dropship.

The opening was shot on a green screen in front of a green screen.

For their part, it does seem like the Maximum Underdrive stream does have some decent production of their own, which is nice to see, especially with Doc no longer on Twitch.

So far, it doesn’t seem like the two-time has seen the clip, but it will be interesting to see what he thinks of the parody if he ever decides to give it a watch.
