YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has shared some of his thoughts on the YouTube drama between James Charles and Tati Westbrook, which caused the make-up artist to lose 1 million YouTube subscribers.

The fracas between James Charles and his former friend Tati Westbrook started after Charles promoted a rival vitamin brand to Westbrook’s on his Instagram story. This prompted Westbrook to upload a video entitled ‘Bye Sister’, in which she effectively ended the twos’ long-term friendship.

Since then, Charles has lost over 1,000,000 YouTube subscribers and, on May 10, released a video named ‘tati’ to his YouTube channel, in which he apologises for the disagreement. Now though, the second most subscribed to YouTuber in the world has shared some of his thoughts.

YouTube: James CharlesCharles’ apology video is on its way to being one of the most disliked videos on YouTube.

Kjellberg started off by joking that he had set his Twitter to only show him Arabic trends to avoid news, but he was still being shown news relating to the James Charles drama. He then went to reply to his own tweet, stating that he’s “got a lot of problems with this Tati video”.

It’s not entirely clear whether he is referring to Westbrook’s original video or Charles’ response, which was simply titled ‘tati’.

This tweet caused a fan to respond, asking: “Who cares? Youtube is 99% degenerates. I’m ok watching them all eat each other”.

Pewds didn’t seem offended by the generalisation, even responding to the tweet by saying that it “was probably the only fair point I’ve seen to it all play out lol”.

Since Westbrook’s video was released, it has amassed over 12 million views and 1.5 million likes. Charles’ video on the other hand, at the time of writing, has hit 8.5 million views in just sixteen hours.

However, that video stands at just under 1 million dislikes, as the YouTube community voices its disapproval with the make-up and beauty star.

Despite Charles’ apology, it appears that there this saga is not close to its conclusion, given the size of the stars involved. Also, with the likes of PewDiePie getting involved, there appears to be more talking points to come.

TikTok star and singer Dixie D’Amelio has deleted the teaser for her upcoming song with rapper Wiz Khalifa after receiving overwhelming negative criticism from viewers. Her mother has also released a lengthy statement on the matter.

Dixie D’Amelio is a household name in the social media age; the older sister to Charli D’Amelio (TikTok’s most-followed creator), Dixie has carved her own path, most notably releasing her own original songs with such features as Lil Mosey and, most recently, Wiz Khalifa.

However, it doesn’t seem that online critics are too pleased with her music, as seen by the oodles of negative comments on the teaser for her upcoming song with Khalifa, which she initially posted to TikTok.

Many commenters brutally roasted the TikTok star’s lyrics and singing ability, with one writing, “Does she really think she’s a singer now?”

“God help you and your lyrics,” another wrote.

Dixie has since removed the teaser in wake of the criticism, taking to Twitter to vent about her frustration regarding the overwhelming negativity.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie wrote. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she continued.

Dixie’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, has also spoken out on the issue in a lengthy Instagram stories post.

“To those sh***ing on people who are doing things they love and are getting attention for it — you should find something you love and go do it!” she said. “To anyone who takes the time to type hate towards someone who is having fun and doing what they love, please know you are a classic case of a weak person who is truly pathetic.”

It doesn’t look like Dixie’s nor her mother’s response to the issue is getting any sympathy from critics, though, who continue to levy negativity against the TikTok family royalty for their attitude toward the situation.

“When you’re rich yeah, it’s easy to get those ‘million of chances to do things they love,’” one critic replied.

“Anything you put on the Internet is going to get hate no matter what you do,” another chimed in. “She’s just going to have to get over that and keep her posts up and move forward.”

What’s your take on the situation? Do you think the hate toward Dixie’s creative pursuits is becoming too overwhelming? Or do you think Dixie’s mom has a point about the constant trolling? Let us know on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!
