Charli D’Amelio, the most followed person on TikTok, called out controversial YouTuber Trisha Paytas in an Instagram Live after the TikTok star lost one million followers in just a few days.
D’Amelio, 16, has been facing criticism after saying in a YouTube video with her family and James Charles that she wished she would have been able to reach 100 million TikTok followers in the year after reaching one million.
Commenters on the video called D’Amelio “entitled” and “ungrateful.”
On Thursday, Paytas, 32, who is frequently involved in YouTube drama, posted a TikTok video claiming that she was worried about D’Amelio and her older sister, Dixie. “Is someone holding them against their will to be doing this stuff?” she asked in response to an interview the sisters did with Popsugar.
In an Instagram live on Thursday apologizing for her comments, D’Amelio referenced Paytas’ TikToks, saying that Paytas had been “completely rude” to her “multiple times.”
“Please stop talking about me,” D’Amelio said about Paytas. “You’re not a very nice person, sorry.”

Paytas previously spoke critically about D’Amelio and Addison Rae Easterling on her “Frenemies” podcast. Last month, she said that D’Amelio was “boring” and that Easterling might become a “prostitute.”
Paytas responded to D’Amelio’s comments in a series of TikToks on Thursday. “Charli is a minor so I’m going to try to handle this with literal kid gloves, because she’s a child and I understand that,” Paytas said. “I haven’t been rude, I’ve given constructive criticism as far as this situation goes because I really do feel for her.”
Paytas also said that D’Amelio couldn’t call her “not a very nice person” since the two didn’t know each other, and said she was just trying to help the young star. “This is the internet. This is social media. People are allowed to give opinions,” Paytas said. “You have very entitled behavior, both you and your sister. It’s unbecoming.”
