D’Amelio recently appeared on her sister Dixie’s YouTube series, “The Early Late Night Show,” where she talked about how TikTok has “turned into this whole competition.”
According to Insider, the now 17-year-old dancer has been in the game since 2019 and gained the attention of hundreds of millions, even leading up to being the face of a super bowl commercial for Sabra hummus in 2020.
But has this TikTokers days of doing the renegade come to an end?
During the show on Saturday, D’Amelio expressed her fading passion for the social media app.
“It’s extremely difficult to want to continue doing something that people say how much they hate,” Charli stated. “It’s hard. It doesn’t feel like it used to, where there was collaborations and fun and everyone was friends.”
“I think the fact that you’re the biggest on the app, and when they realized you wanted a real relationship and not just collab and they couldn’t use you, that’s when they stopped,” Dixie told her younger sister.
“it sucks, because that’s when you try to be, we both try to be, very trusting. But at the end of the day you can’t really, you don’t know,” Dixie continued.
In March of 2020, D’Amelio was publicly criticized for stateing that she had “lost the passion” for TikTok.
“It’s extremely difficult to continue posting on a platform where the people that are watching your videos don’t actually like, want to see you and a lot of the feedback is negative. It’s very hard to do that,” D’Amelio said. “And I just kind of lost the passion for it because it used to be really fun for me,” she said on her podcast 2 Chix’s.
The comment received a ton of negative backlash saying things like “I wish I was Charli.”
“At the end of the day, I make content because it’s a fun thing that I get to do, and if people enjoy it, and they wanna be on Team Charli and support me, that’s great. But once again, that’s up to them,” Charli said.
