TikTok creator Dixie D’Amelio is quickly climbing to the top of social media stardom — and she’s gotten so popular that another internet celeb decided to get a tattoo of her name in a seriously unexpected location.

YouTuber, Instagram star and all-around online sensation Sebastian Topeta is likewise known for his viral videos — but he took things a step further by honoring one of the net’s fastest-rising celebrities with a permanent homage.

Topete revealed his plan in a vlog on June 7, where he admitted he was going to get Dixie’s name tattooed inside of his lower lip as a show of their friendship.

Dixie D’Amelio is one of TikTok’s most popular content creators and is the older sister of the site’s most-followed creator, Charli D’Amelio.

That’s not all; the YouTuber even admitted that this would be his first tattoo ever, and that he’d thought up the crazy stunt as a spur-of-the-moment idea for a vlog.

“I’m really about to get ‘Dixie’ as my first tattoo,” the YouTuber exclaimed as he waited in the tattoo parlor. “I just thought of this a couple hours ago. I was just laying in my bed… ‘I’m gonna film a YouTube video today. You know what? I’m gonna get a tattoo. I’m gonna write Dixie on my lip.’ It kinda escalated.”

Although he’d teased Dixie with a “surprise,” she had no idea what was in store — and was understandably shocked after Topete revealed his new ink.

“It says your name,” Topete explained over their ensuing FaceTime call.

“No it doesn’t,” Dixie replied, her voice flat with disbelief. “Oh my lord! You’re joking! A lip tattoo!”

Dixie isn’t the only one Topete surprised with his tattoo; he also called up his mother, who similarly floored by her son’s antics, asking if the procedure hurt in typical mom fashion.

This isn’t the end of Topete’s TikTok-related tattoo schemes, either; he jokingly claimed he would write ‘Addison’ on his chest for his next tattoo, along with a slew of other TikTok stars including the platform’s most-followed creator, Charli D’Amelio.

While Dixie has yet to comment on the matter with a video, this wouldn’t be the first time fans and fellow creatives have payed their homage to her in strange ways — although this definitely marks a first for the eldest D’Amelio sibling.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
