Charli D'Amelio Hits 100 Million TikTok Followers Almost Immediately After Backlash Drama

“It’s just so weird to think like a little over a year ago I was in Connecticut doing regular school, doing nothing.”

TikTok’s biggest star, Charli D’Amelio, just hit another milestone… becoming the first creator on the app to reach 100 million followers.

This huge accomplishment only comes a year after the 16-year-old dancer hit one million followers, and became TikTok’s highest earning creator of 2020.

Charli took to Instagram Live to celebrate the news, “I hit 100 million on TikTok. I don’t even know how to react, mostly because this doesn’t feel real. How do people even react to this? I just genuinely don’t know what to do,” she continued as her live feed was being observed by more than 300,000 people. “I’m in my bathroom by myself watching edits on Twitter because they’re making me cry and I just genuinely do not know what to do. I’m so confused. Just, life doesn’t feel real.”

She added, “It’s just so weird to think like a little over a year ago I was in Connecticut doing regular school, doing nothing and now I’m living in L.A. I have the best friends ever.”

“If COVID wasn’t a thing, I’d have like a 100 million-person meet and greet right now. But that’s not possible,” the “StarDog and TurboCat” actress concluded her IG live.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the TikTok sensation. During last week’s “Dinner With the D’Amelios” video, Charli appeared to give grossed out looks as a personal chef served her family a multi-course meal. She also lamented not hitting the 100 million follower milestone in a year.

“Ugh, I just wish I had more time because imagine if I hit 100 mil one year after hitting a mil,” she exclaimed. James Charles, who was the “mystery guest” at the dinner, cracked, “95 million not enough for you?”

Shortly after, a massive unfollowing occurred for D’Amelio, who attempted to bandage the hemorrhaging by sharing several tearful TikTok apologies.

Charli broke down on a live stream saying, “Seeing how people reacted to this, I don’t even know if I want to do this anymore. This is messed up stuff that people are saying. Like people telling me to hang myself. People just blatantly disrespecting the fact that I’m still a human being is not okay at all.”

She added, “When I had said about the followers things, I genuinely just thought it would be so cool to hit a huge, huge milestone a year after hitting another milestone. I never meant for you guys to make it seem like you were numbers or did not mean anything.”

Charli and Dixie D’Amelio Post Pic With Chef Aaron May After YouTube Dinner Drama

FYI for everyone keeping up with that Charli and Dixie D’Amelio dinner drama, Us Weekly reports that Charli posted a photo of them reuniting with personal Chef Aaron May (and, notably, a chicken nugget)—showing there are zero bad vibes after they came under fire for their treatment of him in a YouTube series called Dinner With the D’Amelios.

As a reminder in case you don’t make a habit of keeping up with TikTok drama, fans accused Charli and Dixie of being rude to Chef May after he cooked their family dinner (which included snails) and they made vomiting faces / asked for dinosaur chicken nuggets.

Charli, Dixie, and Chef May have since explained that the snail bit was done on purpose (#CONTENT!) to gross Dixie out, and that no offense was caused. “Someone on production thought it would be funny to feed Dixie and Charli snails,” May told The Hollywood Fix. “They didn’t take it the best. I love Dixie and Charli, I’ve worked with them before, I’m going to work with them again. Those girls are the greatest, I love them. It was all fun and games.”

Dixie also explained that her team knows she throws up easily and wanted to “get her” in footage that wasn’t included in the video:

While Charli tearfully said “You can hate on me for whatever I’ve done, but the fact that all of this is happening because of a misunderstanding, like, I just feel like that’s not okay. And if this is the community that I’m in and the community that I put myself in, I don’t know if I want to do that anymore.”
