    yk i don't hate this video..I love the D'amelio's and the show was interesting in so many ways..but he made some pretty great points i don't think he was trying to be hateful about it

  • Shockwave

    I feel pretty bad for them. It’s not like they were even trying to get this big in the first place, or at all. Child actors that we’ve had in the past worked to get to where they are. Since they’re kids they most likely didn’t know the ups and downs that comes with fame. They wanted to get to stardom, and were probably taught that hate would come along the way, but at least they got a heads up of what was to come. These girls were just messing around on an app. And for some reason a bunch of kids decided Charlie was the one to follow, and now she’s as big as she is. She didn’t ask for fame, and because of that she was so susceptible to hate. For some reason kids love her. Why? Because she does lip syncing and little dances on an app. It doesn’t make sense but that’s just the world we live in. So now people are starting to follow her just to see the following number go up, and she’s getting even bigger, and her fans want to see more of her. But when she goes on talk shows and events, what else can she do and talk about but the very thing that made her famous. So she ends up looking dumb and completely talentless because at the end of the day what got her famous was something that took absolutely no talent whatsoever. And since tiktok is widely seen as cringey, people call her cringey since she’s more or less the face of tiktok. And jealous people have nothing but hate for her since all they see is someone who hasn’t done anything worth something to get where she is, and that it isn’t fair. And to be fair they’d be right. But she had no control over it. So she’s hated over something that isn’t even her fault.

  • Smilez

    with how miserable child celebrities are there should honestly be a rule of what age we should grant fame to someone and find a good reason to give them fame. not bc they did a dance on their phone

    I don’t care for them or like them but I feel sad when I see them crying like the bullying they get is sad and I understand this is what celebrities sign up for but they’re young and it seems like they don’t have much say in deciding if they want this or not.

    that was so thoughtful, thank you for sharing your insights. of course the snap judgment is rich = bad, but i don't exactly think that CEO of amazon for example is comparable to accidental teen star on a fickle and new platform whose pretty much solely responsible for their family's quality of life

    This video seems like a subtle way to warn the D’Amelio family in a kind way about Hollywood executives, while also making fun of their bad show while not being mean to them. Good ol Drew being a nice boy

  • Robyn T-M

    i really really appreciate you making this video. i feel like all i see regarding charlie and dixie is just pure negativity directed at them CONSTANTLY no matter what they do. and these same people doing this are those who preach kindness and mental health awareness and its honestly sickening. i agree with everything you said and it’s sooo refreshing to see someone treating them like ACTUAL HUMANS WITH FEELINGS. also people forget they are children and have little to no control over anything right now. also being a teen girl is already fucking hard enough like i can’t IMAGINE what its like for them and i honestly dont want to.

  • Melanie

    2:34 you have an objectively higher opinion of the damelio's than you do of the kardashians???!?! now come on. this isn’t 2011. there's a wealth of resources out there to show which family you should OBJECTIVELY have a higher opinion of.

  • Drip.Inf*

    This isn’t really all the managers fault. They are just old and not up with the current generation and probably can’t even try and relate or feel for them because they are so old and didn’t deal with anything they are dealing with . They just see this as her job and profession but don’t see it on a deeper level which is what she wants to do . They think she’s too young to be independent but u just gotta give them all of the control and they’ll learn on their own . More authenticity that way and less more corporate.

    You had the good point of saying that the sisters feel pressured by their managers and agents to keep their fame going as it brings in both parties money. My question to that is: Aren’t management and the agents employed by the family? Can’t the family simply choose to not do the work? I mean, the D’Amelios are the product, therefore the moneymakers, there really isn’t management can force them to do.

  • Nova

    This is like a great video

  • TheGreatChrisB

    I've felt bad for Dixie for a while now. After I heard about Charli when she was blowing up and people just said "oh yeah she has a sister I think named Dixie", I felt that. I even heard people say she was the ugly sister, meanwhile Charli is or was literally an underage teenager, and even Dixie I think is still technically a teenager. Like imagine being known as the older wannabe famous sister, I couldn't handle that and I'm 28. I hope they both come out ok or pull back a bit. It's not healthy to give up your childhood for money.

    You truly have a brilliant mind. You make concise, insightful, and incredibly accurate points, all while being genuine and likable. I think this is the first video I've seen of yours, and I'm super impressed. I also appreciate that you speak about them from a respectful perspective. Kudos. I actually wish the D'amelio girls would see this video. Your assessment would especially benefit them in opening their eyes to all the potential exploitation they're going through.

    You really broke it down well and I'm afraid she's already scathed. These people are just being led around by the nose by the industry that jumps at the chance with popular people. Unfortunately, parents have been sacrificing their kids since the beginning of TV for the name and money. Speaking of which, mark my words....I can totally see her suing her parents or ending up in therapy for a long time in the future

    Truly if they didn’t build their careers off of taking credit from black creators content, I would have nothing to say about them. But you never know who was encouraging them to continue to discredit the Black people they were stealing from. That being said, I still feel bad for the kids.

    I do not support the idea of sending hate to tik tokers who are famous, as you said, they didn't ask for it. But I totally understand why so many people aren't happy because of the way they rose to fame. This is real world and its quite absurd to think that some weird moves and being pretty will make you a millionare. Nobody's to blame though. Cuz those who watch tik tok are kids and they aren't doing anything wrong if they like to watch tik toks.

    im glad you didnt make fun of them. I think adults forget these D'amelio sisters are teenagers, and even if they arent talented they shouldnt be torn apart. I think a lot of youtubers wouldve just made fun of them relentlessly and I'm happy to see you took the high road

    Sadly this is a tale as old as time. Parents basically pimping out their kids for 15 minutes of fame and a lifetime of mental health issues. Especially in today's age where everyone has access to your life 24/7, kids are the ones suffering the most. ALWAYS look to the parents, because supporting your child's passion is a lot different than straight up exploiting them like this. Why aren't they protecting them? Jeanette's comment is right, kids shouldn't be allowed to become famous. There's a reason that we're always surprised when a child star grows up to be "normal". Great video bro.

    I’ve never been interested in internet celebs or celebs in general. Honestly seeing bull shit news articles about celebrities make me cringe, but I never knew how bad the criticism was for them especially for kids. Like really you’re going to be mean to a child because some idiot predicted their death and I didn’t happen, that’s how you bully a child into suicide. People love to hate to much.
