TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio was targeted by a hateful comment from a Twitter user — leading her to clap back with the perfect response to their unexpected vitriol.

Dixie D’Amelio is one of TikTok’s top content creators, boasting over 20 million followers on the platform due to her viral dance videos.

It’s also worth noting that Dixie is the older sister of Charli, TikTok’s most-followed creator at 49.4 million followers — a fact that one hater feels is the only reason for Dixie’s success on the popular mobile app.

Writer Alexis Dent hit out at Dixie on Twitter due to this assumption, retweeting a TikTok that accused the internet star of only finding TikTok fame due to her connection to her younger sister.

“Sorry not sorry,” Dent wrote, going on to tag Charli, Dixie, and Marc D’Amelio “for good measure.”

Unsurprisingly, fans of the sisters hit out at Dent’s divisive tweet, with one sarcastically replying, “Hahaha, we love bringing other girls down, ahaha so funny.”

The writer stood her ground in spite of the backlash, arguing that Dixie is “untalented” and clarifying that her post wasn’t gender-specific, as the fan insinuated.

“Bruh, she has no talent,” Dent argued. “Please tell me ONE talent she has. One. She fails upwards, and it has nothing to do with gender. I love lifting up women who are smart as badass. Dixie is neither.”

While such a hurtful comment might get under anyone’s skin, Dixie showed that she’s good at giving the haters the cold shoulder, as evidenced by her succinct clapback to the drama.

“How can I change for you?” Dixie wrote in a quote tweet of Dent’s reply, adding a few emojis for good measure.

However, this didn’t seem to quell Dent’s outrage over the matter, who went on bash Dixie’s dancing skills and accused her of using her sister’s success for her own stardom.

This is far from the first time the D’Amelio sisters have faced unwarranted hatred online; Dixie previously opened up about how rude comments about her body used to heavily affect her, and although she has grown past these insults, she’s still battling haters to this day — and she’s pretty damn good at giving them a taste of their own medicine.

xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
