Entertainment: American teen Charli Grace D’Amelio is the first magical mark of 100 million followers on TikTok. TikTokker Charli D’Amelio has passed the 100 million followers mark. The 16-year-old influencer is the first TikTok star to have so many followers.
D’Amelio has by far the most followers on the platform. The second most popular account on TikTok follows with nearly 70 million followers at an appropriate distance. D’Amelio’s older sister Dixie, who is also active on the platform, is a lot less popular with 44 million followers. Well-known stars such as Will Smith and Jason Derulo, with 43 million and 40 million followers respectively, don’t even come close.
Charli and her sister Dixie were recently discredited because of a video from the YouTube series Dinner With The D’Amelios, in which the sisters had to eat snails with their families at the table. Dixie in particular was not pleased with the French delicacy and had to throw up at the table.
Viewers found the TikTok stars snooty and the sisters lost millions of followers. D’Amelio even considered shutting down her account after she said she was inundated with death threats and nasty reactions. In a subsequent video, she said, crying, that she did not want to move into such an online world. That turned out to be short-lived. Charli is now fully active on TikTok again.
