When it comes to TikTok, there are quite literally no bigger names than Charli D’Amelio. Despite being just 16 years of age, the American dancer has amassed an incredible following on the social media app, sitting at 110 million followers as of the publication of this article.

Her incredible following is what led so many TikTok fans to scratch their head when, on March 27, her account became totally unavailable. What made the situation even stranger was that the account reappeared roughly an hour later, with no explanation provided by the platform or D’Amelio for its short disappearance.

The message is typically displayed when an account has been removed or banned, so many fans naturally assumed this was the case. However, the account soon resurfaced in all its glory, with its full video profile and follower count still intact.

Was Charli banned?

There were a few theories as to why D’Amelio’s account was temporarily unavailable. As one Twitter user pointed out, TikTok have been known to mistakenly ban some users recently, restoring their accounts when they realise the mistakes.

Others suggested that D’Amelio herself deleted the account, following some comments she has made about toxicity and negativity on the app. At just 16, it’s not surprising she has encountered some issues with a following of over 100 million people.

Whatever the cause, D’Amelio’s account is now back up and running as normal.
