Dixie D’Amelio, Noah Beck, and Ryland Storms are facing criticism from fans for using what some have called a ‘disrespectful’ audio track in a recent TikTok.

Dixie and Ryland are members of the Hype House based in Los Angeles, while Noah is a part of Sway House, another creator house in Los Angeles whose members are often seen hanging out with members of the Hype House.

In the video, the trio was seen lip-syncing and dancing to the track “What that mouth do?” by BigKlit. Many viewers were offended by the lyrics, with one user commenting “This song is not only offensive to Christians but also offensive to many other religions.”

Although the video has since been deleted, it was reuploaded to Instagram ‘tea’ account TikTokRoom, where followers of the account were split between whether the song was offensive or not. One commenter said: “Y’all make a big deal about everything”, while another wrote, “It’s disrespectful but because it’s y’all faves y’all ain’t gonna say nothing.”

The same audio has already been used more than 23,000 times on TikTok, and by other popular TikTokkers including Thomas Petrou who runs the Hype House. Commenters on his video asked him to delete the video or apologize for the song choice.

Several people in the comments expressed that these TikTokkers should be more responsible as influencers. Dixie and other stars were criticized last week for being irresponsible as influencers by Tyler Oakley after they attended a large house party.

This isn’t the first time a member of the Hype House has been criticized for their choice of audio in a TikTok. More recently, Addison Rae was accused of appropriating LGBTQ culture after she chose to use a “Lesbian Anthem”, an unreleased song by American rapper ‘PPCOCAINE’, reportedly titled “For That Cash.”

Noah, Ryland, and Dixie are yet to address the criticism, though the TikTok has been deleted.


Twitch streamer fails miserably trying to help a thirsty dog

Dogs are adorable intelligent animals, but any owner of a pup knows that they can also be especially dumb – and hilarious.

When IRL Twitch streamer CookSux saw a chained up dog while walking around Gyeongsan, South Korea, he wanted to help. Except, it turned out to be a huge failure.

Out of the goodness of his heart on a sunny day, this streamer decided to put the last of his water from his bottle into the dog’s bowl.

Initially, it seemed as though the dog wanted food or water as it held its bowl in its mouth and wagged its tail as the streamer approached. The dog kept pacing back and forth, as CookSux said to viewers he thought it was afraid of the lawnmower.

At first, the streamer tried to pour the water into its mouth, while the dog seemed to lap it up but seemed more interested in other things.

Cooksux decided to give the dog a little treat instead, despite viewers in the comments telling him to pour the water in the bowl.

But the dog didn’t seem to want a snack either, continuing to pace around with the bowl as the streamer shouted “You dummy!” and threw little bits of food at the ground so he could eat.

However, clearly this dog was feeling more playful than thirsty. As soon as CookSux was able to pour water into the bowl, the dog immediately flipped it over with its paw, grabbed the whole thing with its mouth, and carried it around like a brand new toy.

Defeated and frustrated, CookSux stared at the camera holding the empty water bottle, before shouting at the viewers saying “You don’t know what to do with these dogs, you don’t know sh*it.”

At the time of writing the Twitch clip now has more than 19,000 views, more than double the views of the original stream.
