    Dixie And Charli's Family Chef Has Chimed In On The Whole "Dinner With The D'Amelios" Controversy

    "I've worked with them before, and I'm gonna work with them again."

    It has been quite the week for the D'Amelio sisters.

    There have been twists, there have been turns.

    Here's my best attempt to sum up the situation:

    * Dixie and Charli got some pretty strong backlash for their rude behavior during the first episode of their YouTube series, Dinner With the D'Amelios.

    * Dixie explained the context of the clips used in the video, and Charli called the whole thing a "misunderstanding" while defending herself after she received death threats as part of the backlash.

    * James Charles, who was in the video, weighed in and defended Charli. YouTuber Trisha Paytas also chimed in for some reason.

    * Dixie responded to Trisha by posting a video of herself dancing to an audio clip of Trisha saying the n-word, was (rightfully) dragged for it, deleted the video, and apologized.

    * After losing about half a million TikTok followers, Charli bounced back and just hit 100 million after all.

    Got it? Excellent.


    And let me take this opportunity to remind you all that, while it's perfectly valid to criticize celebrities when they behave the way the D'Amelios did, sending death threats to anybody, let alone a teenager, is never okay!!

    It seems like everyone involved is ready to move past the whole thing, as evidenced by this pic Charli uploaded to her Instagram story over the weekend that a member of her team also shared.

    That's Charli, James Charles, Chef Aaron May, Dixie, and a chicken nugget.

    It's no Dino Nugget, but it's a suitable substitute for a meal cooked by your family chef, I guess? IDK, I'm just being snarky.

    Chef Aaron himself isn't too pressed about the drama, saying earlier this week that he thought the whole thing was blown out of proportion and that his feelings weren't hurt at all.

    "I love Dixie and Charli. I've worked with them before, and I'm gonna work with them again," he told Hollywood Fix. "Those girls are the greatest; I love them. It was all fun and games."

    Tommy Burns, who is a content manager for the D'Amelios, claimed the whole thing was his idea to begin with.

    This certainly tracks with the explanation Dixie gave via TikTok.


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

    It seems like everyone who could possibly have anything to say about this has weighed in, so you can make of it what you will and come to your own conclusion.

    Personally, I'm tired. The internet moves too fast in 2020.
