Later haters! Charli D’Amelio is definitely not afraid to call out nasty internet trolls, and now, she just got real about why she loves to clap back at them.
“I do try to talk about it as much as I can. A lot of people are afraid to. I feel the more I talk about it, the more normalized it is for people to open about their feelings,” she told People Magazine, when asked about why she is so honest about how much the negative attention effects her. “If I’m talking about it and they know that this bothers me and they are going through a similar thing, maybe at school, just showing people that it’s okay to have feelings. It’s okay to not be 100 percent all the time.”
As fans know, her admission comes just days after the TikTok star shared a clip of herself crying over her online haters. In a now-deleted video, the internet sensation showed screenshots of various nasty messages she has received, as the song “Teenage Pregnancy” by Blank Banshee played in the background. Then, pictures of Charli crying started to flash across the screen. “It hurts,” was written on one photo. The TikTok has since been taken down.
“When you do discuss it, you tend to get more [hate],” she continued. “But at the same time, there are people who reach out to me with stories of how they are struggling through similar issues. It brings a lot of people together, and that’s what I do it for.”
Previously, on May 4, 2020, the 15-year-old shared a screenshot of a comment that read, “TBH, I hate body shaming, but this is how girls become w**res. She legit posts bikini pics and she is underaged… Which I don’t agree with, at all.”
“Very fishy that you would say this about me… Next time I will be sure to wear my full body snowsuit to the beach!” the influencer fired back.

Back in April, the brunette beauty urged her fans to stop talking about her body online.
“STOP TALKING ABOUT MY BODY! It’s not your place to tell me if I’m losing weight or gaining weight,” she wrote in a series of tweets on April 27, 2020. “Why don’t we all just be respectful and understand that we should just be kind and uplift everyone instead of trying to bring others down. I’ve seen these videos about me my friends and complete strangers but it doesn’t matter who you’re doing it to.”
