Less than two weeks after it appeared to be confirmed that TikTok star Darianka Sanchez was joining the Hype House, the collective has confirmed that she actually isn’t a part of the Hype House following bullying allegations.

On June 8, all signs seemed to point towards Darianka officially joining the Hype House, with her and her management posting on Instagram about it, followed by an outpouring of support from fellow content creators.

Although it was supposed to be one of the biggest moments of her life, Darianka was quickly dragged into drama with a flurry of bullying allegations surfacing, including against popular TikTok creator Kenzie Ziegler.

Darianka’s Hype House tenure was clearly a short-lived one.

The incident links back to a 2015 iCloud leak of Ziegler and her family, which people believe Darianka had some involvement in.

After that, the situation went quiet: Darianka wasn’t showing off her new residence, the other Hype House members weren’t creating videos with or talking about her, and there was clearly some sort of issue.

Now, it looks like Darianka’s fate has been sealed, thanks to a comment from the official Hype House TikTok account.

In a comment from a fan on one of their posts, they were told that “Darianka can not be trusted” – and the Hype House residents took the opportunity to clear the air.

“We wish her the best but she is not a part of Hype House,” the group’s official account wrote, dispelling any rumors that had started to circulate.

The Hype House put an end to any affiliation with Darianka.

Because of everything that has happened, it’s unclear whether Darianka was ever really actually in the Hype House – and if she was, it must be one of the shortest tenures in TikTok history.

Darianka has not spoken on the issue, and none of the individual Hype House stars have explained the situation yet, so whether it ever comes out what has really happened remains to be seen.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

A post shared by charli d’amelio (@charlidamelio)

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
