Social media star Charli D’Amelio has responded to Khaby Lame overtaking her on TikTok to become the most followed person on the entire app, saying she is “proud of him”.
18-year-old Charli D’Amelio has been making TikTok videos since 2019 and has become one of the biggest stars in the years she’s been on the platform, with over 142 million followers.
However, over the course of 2021, Italy-based TikToker Khaby Lame quickly rose through the ranks, overtaking many of TikTok’s biggest stars thanks to his viral comedy videos.
For months, fans predicted that Khaby would overtake Charli, and on June 23, he finally surpassed the dancer to become the most-followed YouTuber on TikTok.
Many fans have wondered what Charli thinks of now being the second most followed account on the app, and in a panel with Lightricks at VidCon, Charli responded to Khaby’s big moment.
“I had No. 1 for two years. I feel like it’s about time someone else got that spot and I’m proud of him,” Charli told the audience. “He’s a friend and there’s no bad blood, I promise you.”
