Charli D’Amelio has just hit the 100 million followers mark on TikTok. And with that, she has officially succeeded in being the first tiktoker to hit such a huge mark. Charli is enjoying her number 1 position on the entertainment app for quite some time now. However, this fame comes with a price. There are people who are bringing receipts to prove that she is not “gaining” followers. Instead, she is allegedly buying followers.
Charli D’Amelio is buying followers or not? Receipts!
The 16-year-old dancing star has millions of followers and billions of views on TikTok. Considering her fame, it is clear that out of these followers, not all are her admirers. Some are there just to stir some drama.

At this moment, we are unsure of the fact that who is telling the truth. But seems like the famous celebrity host, Wendy Williams, had a lot to say about Charli. In fact, some have even called it straight on-air-bullying. Wendy called out Charli for “fake crying” when she started losing followers before gaining them back.
In a family YouTube vlog titled dinner with the D’Amelios, they had James Charles as a mystery guest to have dinner with. The Chefs served snails as a joke and Dixie and Charli were apparently rude towards him. Plus, Charli D’Amelio made a remark that implied she’s taking her number of followers for granted. Later, they cleared the situation after the backlash they received. However, Charli started to lose followers.
She went live and cried talking about the situation. Soon after it, Charli D’Amelio started to gain followers again. But these receipts are suggesting something else:

While some people on the internet have stated that they always thought Charli was buying followers, others are asking tea channels to stop spending time on such rumors. Instead, they should be focusing on other important things that are happening in the world.
How many followers can you buy?
There are some online businesses available that help you in gaining followers on TikTok. In an experiment video posted by a YouTuber, Biaheza, uploaded in March, there are some online websites shown that offer packages with respect to the number of followers. However, the maximum number of followers you could buy through those websites is 5000 in a day by paying $60+.
You can do the maths. In Charli’s case, even if she bought followers to reach the 100 million mark, how many cards were used and packages were purchased to do so? That’s kinda SUS!
Anyways, Charli D’Amelio has not yet commented on what Wendy Williams said, as well as these receipts situation.
