Charli and Dixie D’Amelio were reportedly seen on a group trip in The Bahamas with other TikTok stars. The backlash was immediate, as more than 1.7 million people worldwide have died from COVID-19.
Sisters Charli, 16, and Dixie D’Amelio, 19, have sparked backlash across Twitter over a report that they’re allegedly vacationing in the Bahamas with other TikTok stars. While neither Charli or Dixie have posted photos of the trip, @tiktokroom claimed that Charli, Dixie and other “influencers” (like Dixie’s boyfriend Noah Beck, Charli’s ex Chase Hudson, and Madi Monroe) “went to the Bahamas,” based on a video and photos that fans sent to the Instagram account. HollywoodLife has reached out to Charli and Dixie’s rep for comment.
On Dec. 28, Dixie’s boyfriend also reposted an Instagram Story video of himself with Chase, Anthony Reeves and a photographer named Bryant at the Saint Laurent store within the Crystal Court luxury shopping area at the Atlantis Bahamas resort, according to Buzfeed. Meanwhile, Madi posted a photo of herself onboard a private jet and captioned it “i’m on my way” on Dec. 27, which you can see in the post above.
All of the posts sparked anger on Twitter, as the COVID-19 death rate in Los Angeles (where Charli, Dixie and their friends live) has reached nearly 10,000 people. “Not dixie and charli and those other f–king top tier tiktokers vacationing in the bahamas rn… as if they haven’t been partying this whole time and could easily bring covid to the islands which don’t have many hospitals…. bro who let these people get famous,” one fan vented on Twitter.

“Waiting for dixie and charli to arrive home from their cute bahamas vacation and address this frustrating situation,” another fan tweeted, while a third fan wrote, “CHARLI AND DIXIE ARE IN THE BAHAMAS? DURING A PANDEMIC? BYE.” There have been 7,834 total reported cases of COVID-19 in The Bahamas; if Charli and Dixie really are in the Caribbean country, they would have to quarantine for 10 days upon returning home, per a new order from the L.A. County Department of Public Health that was issued on Dec. 28.

There has been widespread criticism of TikTok stars’ outings amid the pandemic. Ariana Grande even called out the new social media stars for frequenting a West Hollywood hotspot called Saddle Ranch throughout 2020 during the Oct. 30 episode of The Zach Sang Show, which led Dixie and Addison Rae to react to the interview.
