Charli D'Amelio is losing the 'joy' in TikTok: ' It doesn't feel like it used to'

Charli D'Amelio has lost the will to continue creating content on TikTok.

The 17-year-old, who has more than 115 million followers on the video-making app, says that constant criticism from fans has really demotivated her to continue working.

"It's extremely difficult to want to continue doing something that people say how much they hate," Charli said on her sister Dixie D'Amelio's YouTube show. "It's hard. It doesn't feel like it used to, where there was collaborations and fun and everyone was friends."

Sister Dixie, who is also a famous TikToker, supported Charli by saying the app is not about real friendships.

"I think the fact that you're the biggest on the app, and when they realized you wanted a real relationship and not just collab and they couldn't use you, that's when they stopped," Dixie said during the show. "And it sucks, because that's when you try to be — we both try to be — very trusting. But at the end of the day you can't really, you don't know."
