Blogger and columnist Perez Hilton have had saucy gossips with celebrities in the past. However, to think that he will come in the limelight against a 16-year-old Charli D’Amelio? His controversial opinion on celebrities has pulled media attention towards him several times, and this time is no different. This time his comments on the TikTok star came under fire, but he claims that people misunderstood him.
Who Is Charli D’Amelio?
For those who don’t know, D’Amelio is a teen TikTok celebrity who shot to fame after her dance performance on song Renegade. She is also the first TikTok star to feature in a Super Bowl commercial. In fact, the New York Times called her an ‘undisputed star’.
What Did Perez Hilton Say About Her?
Perez Hilton first got her attention when D’Amelio was enjoying her vacation in the Bahamas. She posted a few TikTok videos in her bikini while singing to Sugar by Brockhampton and even mouthing its sexual lyrics. To this, Hilton posted a comment under it:
“Anyone else think it’s inappropriate or a 15-year-old to dance to this?”
Branded as the queen of TikTok, D’Amelio quickly reacted to the comment and replied: “I’m sorry I’m just trying to have fun! :)” Inviting hate and criticism for the comments, Hilton thought to clear the air and took to his YouTube live stream to talk about it:
“These people still are letting me have it over me asking a question on the biggest TikToker of the moment’s account… When she did a video earlier this week gyrating, moving in an adult way to a song about taking big D! All I asked was, is it appropriate of her to be doing this? My main issue was with her parents, not her!”
Perez Hilton tried to completely wipe off any negativity from his comments while also staying beside it:
“I think Charli’s a sweet girl and talented. My real issue is with her parents.”
Do you guys agree with Hilton?
