That’s a lot of followers.
The backlash was pretty swift after the video showed Charli and Dixie being super rude to their chef, who prepared the family a paella with snails in it.
Then there was the bit where Charli complained about not having reached 100 million followers on TikTok — despite being the most followed person on the platform.
However, the tides recently started to turn — leading Charli to post a “THANK YOU ALL SO SO SO SO MUCH FOR 99 MILLION” yesterday.
THANK YOU ALL SO SO SO SO MUCH FOR 99 MILLION I CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE WHAT I HAVE IN STORE FOR YOU ALL VERY SOON!! I LOVE YOU 💕 💕💕 dc @jaedengomezz
And it now looks like Charli got her way. She just passed 100 million followers — making her the first TikToker to do so.
Anyway, there’s probably some big point here about the actual effects of online backlash on popularity — but for now, I’m going to go lie down.
