Dixie D’Amelio is one of the biggest names on social media right now, as a TikTok sensation and older sister of the app’s most followed creator, Charli D’Amelio.

Dixie has little under 50 million followers on the platform, making her one of the top five followed creators on there, as well as spreading her fan base across other platforms, including YouTube.

That said, a lot of fans seem to think she lives somewhat in her younger sister’s shadow, with Charli being no less than an absolute dominant force on TikTok, on the verge of hitting 100 million followers at the time of writing.

As such, some fans seem to believe that the D’Amelio parents show favoritism towards Charli, or treat Dixie badly — but she’s responded to critics and let them know the score.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

While accusations about the D’Amelio parents have been ongoing for some time now, Dixie had clearly had enough when scrolling through TikTok comments on November 16.

As posted by TikTokroom, Dixie responded to at least two comments saying similar things. The first saw Dixie simply say “no” to someone who suggested that “her mom always looks so embarrassed of her” but not of Charli.

The second was a response to someone asking why Dixie’s parents “treat her so badly” — to which she simply replied that “they don’t.”

Dixie was very blunt with those making accusations of her parents’ alleged favoritism.

The D’Amelio family has come under a fair amount of flak due to this issue, something that all family members — both parents and children — have vehemently denied in the past.

It goes without saying that Dixie firmly believes her parents treat the siblings equally, and it’s probably not nice for them to see comments such as these, even despite all of the success they’ve had on TikTok.

Hopefully this will slow down the amount of fans firing accusations at the TikTok parents — though we’re not sure how likely that is.

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.
