18 Tweet Reactions To Charli D'Amelio Losing Over Half A Million Followers After Her Family's Dinner Video

"There will not, and will never be, an age limit for respecting others."

Earlier this week, the D'Amelio family released their first episode of Dinner with the D'Amelios, which featured ~mystery guest~ James Charles and award-winning chef Aaron May.

The video got a lot of backlash because people felt that Dixie and Charli were disrespectful to Chef Aaron by A) throwing up his food and B) asking for Dino Nuggets:

If I pulled this kinda shit at the dinner table...you know what, I can't even finish that sentence because I would have never acted this way.

Toward the end of the video, Charli talks about how cool it would have been if she hit 100 million followers exactly a year after hitting a million followers. James had, IMO, an apropos reaction:

I understand James was making a cheeky joke, but a lot of Charliโ€™s followers are upset for being seen as a number rather than a fan in this conversation.

However, since the video released, Charli's lost over half a million TikTok followers and, because it's the internet, Twitter has many a thought about it all:

Some people agree with the backlash and feel as if it's deserved because you're never too young to be respectful:

Especially in a climate when people are dying and cannot afford to put food on the table.

gen z wanna cancel everyone until we try to cancel charli d'amelio then it's "she did nothing wrong" and "y'all are so sensitive"

i watched the dโ€™amelio dinner video and charli and dixie were literally being so rude. be grateful for the food you have. you literally had a personal chef. dont ask for fucking dino nuggets

@kelsealovestay @BuzzFeed Thereโ€™s a difference between a bad mood & straight up disrespect & having no manners. Dixie & Charli are old enough to act their respective ages, & not act like children & making faces when someone does something for them.

charli and dixie deserve to get cancelled LMFAO. they are grown enough to keep rude comments to themselves until AFTER the chef is gone. they were disrespectful. spit into the fucking napkin, donโ€™t be rude, and if u rlly gonna go throw up, kindly remove yourself.

Yโ€™all just realizing Charli dโ€™amelio is problematic when her whole career started from stealing from a black woman.

@tracespotter @charlidamelio And I'm 13. She was extremely disrespectful. She made herself look bad and she's getting the earned backlash. There will not, and will never be an age limit for respecting others.

Others think the backlash and loss of followers is an overreaction when that energy should be pointed elsewhere:

this charli situation is NOT sitting right with me... 100M followers in one year & y'all expect her to know how to be a perfect role model? death threats because she's a picky eater & made a joke about a milestone? 30+ year olds dragging someone half their age? feels familiar ๐Ÿ˜

me tryna figure out what was wrong with charli damelio saying she wanted 100M:

i donโ€™t know why the hell people canโ€™t leave charli alone. poor girls just minding her business when grown ass people keep harassing her.

kinda weird how everyone was quick to cancel charli when y'all still let tony lopez, trisha paytas, and jeffree star have a platform

And, of course, there are just those who wanted to make jokes:

iโ€™m just giggling at the fact even abby lee miller is tuning into charliโ€™s live

Charli: I'm going to hit 100M OMG!! โ“˜ ๐—ข๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐˜€๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ณ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด

Ok were Charli and Dixie a bit rude? Yes. Do they deserve to be canceled? No. Are the jokes and memes funny? Hella ๐Ÿ˜‚

Charli went on IG Live to address the backlash. "You can hate on me for whatever I've done, but the fact that all of this is happening because of a misunderstanding, I just feel like this is not okay."

Regardless of what side you fall on in this story, it is NEVER okay to make death threats to ANYONE, minor or not. It's 100% possible to feel how you want to feel and express your opinion without resorting to violence.

Dixie explained in a TikTok that her team knows that she "vomits a lot" and this was supposed to be a joke...Imma go out on a limb and say that it didn't land:

@dixiedamelio

-video...anyways, not posting this for any other reason than to share the truth of something that was ridiculously blown out of proportion...
