The personal chef cooked food for the family. Family friend James Charles joined them. Viewers watched Charli make faces while the chef described the food. Her sister could be heard gagging at the snail on her plate. The viewers couldn’t believe how disrespectful the sisters were acting.

Charli did respond to the backlash, with tears

Subsequently, Charli D’Amelio had an emotional response to the fan backlash. Eventually she took to Instagram Live to discuss it. Indeed, she referred to the whole chef incident as a huge “misunderstanding.”

You can hate on me for whatever I’ve done… But, the fact that all of this is happening because of a misunderstanding, like… I just feel like that’s not okay. And, if this is the community that I’m in and the community that I put myself in… I don’t know if I want to do that anymore.”

Almost immediately, her reaction was uploaded to a fan account on Instagram. Was the influencer quitting TikTok? It sounded like it!  However, that ended up not being true. After a few hours, she had more to say. She put a more positive spin on her second try.

In short, she wanted to put the drama behind her and move forward. In fact, based on her recent record shattering numbers, it seems she did just that.
