YouTuber Cameron Dallas is best known for his music career, which has earned him over 5.6 million subscribers on the platform – but a recent debacle has put his name in social media circles for a different reason, entirely.

Popular makeup artist and fellow YouTuber Cole Carrigan uploaded a video to Twitter on May 5, claiming that Dallas had come up to him at a house party, unprovoked, and thrown a bottle of water on his pants – an action that Carrigan claims was motivated by homophobia.

The video in question was apparently taken after the incident took place, with Carrigan approaching Dallas and angrily explaining the situation to his fans.

“…fucking ugly-ass Cameron Dallas is throwing water all over my fucking pants like a peice of shit,” Carrigan says in the clip. “So fuck you.”

Carrigan followed up his video with another statement on the matter, claiming that Dallas “froze up” after realizing he was being called out.

“The kid was shook that I started recording him and froze up real fucking quick,” he wrote of the debacle. “It’s 2019. If you’re still homophobic or insecure about your own sexuality so you have to take it out on people who are confident with theirs, you’re TRASH.”

Carrigan’s fans speak out on the alleged attack

While Dallas has yet to respond to Carrigan’s accusations, fans are sounding off on the matter across Twitter, decrying Dallas’s alleged attack and expressing sympathy for Carrigan.

“Are you kidding me? I adored cameron! I thought he was better than this,” one fan replied. “I’m sorry, Cole.”

“Oh, fuck no,” another wrote. “Not only are you IN YOUR OWN HOME where you should be safe, BUT he is a guest and crossed the line. I’m so sorry you had to experience this.”

Cameron Dallas’s previous legal troubles

This wouldn’t be the first time Dallas has been in trouble, either; the former Vine star was arrested in December 2018 on assault charges, after police found a man with a bloodied face in his hotel in Aspen, Colorado.

Dallas followed up his arrest by releasing his mug shot in a Tweet shortly thereafter, claiming that he’d assaulted the man out of self-defense.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
