JAKARTA - TikTok star Charli D'Amelio has entered the vortex of controversy. In his latest event on YouTube, Dinner with The D'Amelios, he tasted food made by chef named Aaron May without knowing what food was served.
The controversy began when Charli showed an expression of dislike for the food. In fact, he and his brother, Dixie D'Amelio had exchanged expressions of dislike.
Netizens considered his behavior impolite when he asked, "Do you have a dino-shaped nugget?" Many comments that the two of them could not maintain their attitude and their parents - Marc D'Amelio and Heidi D'Amelio - did not teach them politeness.
Previously, this internet star was showered with criticism after his family won a competition from YouTuber MrBeast for 300 thousand United States (US). Citizens protested because they took the quiz as a family against one player.
It didn't stop there, Charli also came under fire from netizens after visiting the party of one of the influencers in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. He was also caught not wearing a mask while in the middle of the party.Most Known TikTok Stars
Currently, TikTok is one of the platforms with the most users. The platform, which contains short user-generated videos, has also scored new stars, one of which is Charli D'Amelio.
Through his TikTok account, Charli shows his shrewdness in dancing and shows facial expressions without exaggerating. He was also asked to become a TikTok user with the most followers of 99 million.
Starting from TikTok, Charli began to dominate the market with a number of endorsements and partnerships. Starting from launching a line of make up products, collaborating with Dunkin Donuts, to being invited to dance with Jennifer Lopez.
Charli D'Amelio is one of the influencers who has never faked his identity on social media. All the videos he recorded and uploaded did not show the luxury side. He only wore a T-shirt with his pants and hair tied.
Charli's figure is also outspoken in voicing social issues that are currently being discussed, from the Black Lives Matter campaign to political support. But along with his popularity, Charli is often the target of warganet hatred.Culture Cancel Culture
Cancel culture or other languages from online shaming has become a term attached to Charli D'Amelio. Not a few people want their popularity to end.
Cancel culture usually ends with a boycott of everything that public figures do, even though the truth is not yet known. In Charli's case, this resulted in the number of his followers being reduced to 500 thousand after the video of the controversy.
In his YouTube event, Charli once chanted, "Wouldn't it be cool if I won 100 million followers (TikTok) after a year ago gaining one million followers?"
For some people, this sentence seems a form of protest. "The fact that 99 million people take their time following their accounts bothers me," wrote one TikTok user.
As for Dixie, it has confirmed that the food served by the chef is a form of prank. That's why he made that 'dislike' response. But on the other hand, both of them have limited their Instagram account comments since the controversy started.
