TikTok star Ellie Zeiler has spoken out after fans accused her of copying Charli D’Amelio. For those who missed it, Ellie has gained a lot of attention online recently due to her resemblance to the internet star. But when some people claimed that she had made a fake Twitter account where she pretended to be Charli, the internet was not happy.
A Twitter account with the username @charidamelio has taken the internet by storm over the last few weeks. It claimed to be Charli’s second Twitter, but when fans started to notice that the photos posted on the account were actually of Ellie, they started to believe that she was behind it and using it to trick fans.
“So we all know this girl Ellie Zeiler, who has gone viral recently for looking like Charli D’Amelio. Well, she created an account on Twitter pretending to be Charli,” a fan wrote in a viral TikTok video, explaining the situation. “Here’s one of the pictures she posted. If you look at one of Ellie’s TikToks, she has the same exact rings. She even likes her own posts.”
But according to Ellie, she had nothing to do with the fake account after all.
“My account is @elliezeiler1 not @elliezeilerr,” she wrote on Instagram. “Ask them for a face reveal please because it’s all fake. I’m sorry for having to comment like this but it has gone too far. That is not my real Twitter account. Please stop.”
The person behind the account later came forward and admitted that it was actually run by a fan and that they were only trying to have some fun.
“This account has never been run by Ellie Zeiler,” they said. “Please don’t give her s**t for something she has nothing to do with. It’s not Charli either.”
It has since been taken down.
