TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio has revealed a surprising choice for who her favorite content creator is – and it’s not her little sister Charli!

Charli D’Amelio has over 40 million followers on TikTok, making her the most-followed account on the platform, and while Dixie is obviously a huge supporter of her younger sister, she’s revealed that her favorite creator isn’t even a TikTok native – but can be found on YouTube instead.

Dixie herself has amassed almost 20m followers on the platform, more than how much the YouTuber has, and her choice might be somewhat controversial due to their previous interactions in the past.

Dixie is a huge creator in her own right, but clearly still has time to see the great stuff her peers are putting out.

While filming her first-ever Twitter Q&A for a YouTube video, one of the questions asked of Dixie is who her favorite creator is, and she doesn’t hesitate in saying that she’s actually a huge fan of Cody Ko.

She said: “He actually roasted my Dad in one of his podcasts, but he’s still my favorite. He makes me laugh, I think he’s very funny, I’ve watched him forever.”

The choice is controversial purely for the reason she says: back in December, Cody Ko roasted her father in a podcast, saying he’s “the weirdest Dad on TikTok” for a perhaps-too-open video he posted at the start of November.

More recently, Cody Ko took aim at the entire Hype House – a collective of TikTok stars including Dixie, Charli, as well as the likes of Chase Hudson and Addison Rae – calling their content “cringe.”

This doesn’t seem to have swayed Dixie’s opinion of him, and clearly remains a huge fan of his funny content to this day despite what could have certainly been drama between the two parties.

It would definitely be interesting to see the two create videos together, especially given the history between them, but it’s safe to say Cody might not be up for it.


TimTheTatman rage quits after finding three fishing rods in Fortnite

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
