Popular TikTok creator Avani Gregg has responded to rumors of her leaving the Hype House following much of the drama surrounding the group in recent months.

Avani is one of the biggest stars on TikTok with just under 20 million followers on her account for her zany videos and is also a member of the Hype House.

While the Hype House initially saw massive success, during the rise of TikTok, with many of the app’s biggest stars collaborating together, the group has received some backlash lately after recent drama.

Avani has finally responded to rumors of her leaving the Hype House.

Following the founder’s feud with Daisy Keech and the departure of the D’Amelio sisters, rumors began to spread that other members of the house such as Addison Rae and Avani might be next.

After being asked by one of her fans when she would also be leaving the Hype House, Avani finally responded to the rumors with a subtle dig at her housemates.

The TikTok star joked that the Hype House had lost much of its buzz as of late, and claimed that it was just called “the house.”

“It is now just the house” she added, referring to many of the popular creators who had left.

However, while she does not seem to be happy with the current state of the LA-based collective, the 17-year-old did not reveal whether she plans on leaving the Hype House anytime soon.

As of now, it appears as if Avani is still in the Hype House, as she is still being featured in the group’s latest social media posts and is being reposted on their account’s Instagram story.

Another Hype House member who has been recently rumored to leave was Addison Rae, as many continue to question the fate of the group after it lost some of its biggest creators.

TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio has lost 500,000 followers within the space of two days, with people unfollowing on mass after comments about her follower count that many are calling “ungrateful.”

Charli started her TikTok account in 2019, and within the space of a year went from ordinary teenager to global social media star, securing brand deals and collaborations with some huge celebrities.

The 16-year-old is currently miles ahead of other TikTok accounts on the road to 100 million followers, and was set to reach the milestone very soon. However comments that she made about her follower count have caused a setback.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

In a November 16 video with James Charles and her family, Charli said about the impending follower milestone, “I wish I had more time! Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

James Charles rebutted “was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” with Charli replying “I was just saying like, even numbers,” while sticking out her tongue at the camera with a smile.

While the interaction appeared to have simply been a joke, the comments from the young star certainly ruffled some feathers among fans. People called Charli out for being “ungrateful,” and said that “she deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her.”

This caused an influx of people to unfollow the star, and where she was initially creeping up at a steady pace towards the big 100 million, she’s now found herself heading back in the opposite direction.

Prior to the backlash, Social Blade shows Charli’s highest follower count as being 99.4 million, but at the time of writing it has dropped to 98.96 according to livecounts.io, leaving her at a loss of just over 500,000 followers.

In celebration of her hitting 99 million on November 16, Charli tweeted that “I am so incredibly thankful for every single one of you! You all have changed my life with all of the support and love you give to me!”

While her comments seemed to be just a poorly timed joke, it certainly has frustrated some of her followers, and has proven to be a setback on her road to 100 million.
