Dixie D’Amelio fuels dating rumors with fellow TikToker Griffin Johnson

Dixie D’Amelio, sister to the world’s most famous TikTok star, is now at the center of gossip herself following a hint that she is dating one of the app’s other creators: Griffin Johnson.

Like all great mysteries, there are a ton of signs suggesting that Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson are dating—but no definitive proof. The two have been considered TikTok’s “it couple,” following sister Charli D’Amelio’s breakup with Chase “Lil Huddy” Hudson back in April.

Boasting a combined 32.2 million followers on the app (a full 26 million courtesy of Dixie), the two would theoretically be quite the power couple, but both have remained equivocal about their status. Most recently, she responded to a fan’s inquiry about their dating, in response to a picture of the two all cuddled up, by simply telling them to “ask Griffin.”

 

 

Incredibly coy of the TikTok superstar, yet somehow not nearly as coy as Griffin’s response, or lack thereof.

Given the history of their content, it’s hard to imagine that they’re not dating. The two are constantly affectionate with one another, belying what one traditionally expects from platonic friendships. But it is possible that they’re simply creating such content for show, just like the app’s male stars don dangling, upside-down-cross earrings despite likely not being regular Sunday church attendees.

Still, no one really knows what’s up with these two presumed love birds and it’s possible that they don’t really know, either. Dixie is 18 years old, Griffin is 19, and the internet has only been able to dissect their romantic interests since around October and December, 2019, when each began sharing on TikTok, respectively.

While many acts of courtship involve one party playing hard to get, it appears that both parties here are playing hard to get with their millions of fans—not letting anyone in on their status.

But they certainly do play the game, as each is constantly centering their content around the other in one way or another. While Dixie posted the aforementioned snuggly picture (and Griffin, of course, retweeted it), he has broadcast his own hints as well, most recently by publicizing a negging pet name for her: “stinky.”

 

As of yet, there has been no confirmation or denial from Griffin on the full extent of him and Dixie’s relationship. And it appears that she won’t be providing any certainty in his stead.

This is a bummer for people who loathe uncertainty, but probably just even better content for millions of TikTok fans who enjoy speculating over their favorite stars’ romantic lives.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
