Controversial social media personality Brittany “Lovely Peaches” Johnson has been banned from TikTok after she posted a video where she claimed to have hired someone to sexually assault TikTok’s biggest star, Charli D’Amelio.

Peaches had less than 1 million followers on TikTok before being banned, and has 1 million Instagram followers. She gained popularity by posting controversial videos, often including exposing herself in public. Peaches also penned the song “Itching and Burning,” a track which became a trending song on TikTok in 2019.

Peaches has drawn a lot of attention to herself in recent months, especially among TikTok’s biggest stars, by interacting with their social media accounts in an explicitly sexual way.

Peaches has frequently commented and interacted with stars including Diego Martir, Noah Schnapp, and Charli D’Amelio. In one of Charli’s recent Instagram lives, she wrote “CHARLIE PLEASE SLEEP WITH NOAH” and made references to sex toys.

In March, Peaches appeared to break into Malu Trevejo’s house and shared the incident on her social media.

Social media personality Diego Martir, who is also known for his appearance on Brat TV’s Attaway General, pretended to be dating Peaches in June, but he now says he is no longer associating with her. The interactions between the pair culminated in Peaches sharing Diego’s personal phone number online.

Peaches has since claimed in a video to have hired a 30-year-old man to “rape Charli D’Amelio” while asking viewers to tell her Charli’s location in the comments.

In an Instagram story, Peaches wrote “@charlidamelio you sit back and watch your fans bully other influencers, your fans been bullying me and other influencers and you sit back and watch”

This has left TikTok fans horrified. Multiple Twitter users say that they are disgusted and that Peaches should “Go to jail,” while others have started petitions to de-platform her.

Since the video was posted, TikTok has banned Peaches on the app. Her profile says “this account was banned due to multiple community guideline violations.” although the videos she has posted remain visible.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
