Charli D’Amelio Sets The Record Straight About A Fake “Leaked” Picture Online
"Don’t believe everything you see on the internet."
Charli D’Amelio is clearing up rumours about a fake picture that’s been doing the rounds online that appears to show her topless.
Discussing the situation on her and Dixie’s 2 Chix podcast, Charli says she was flooded with messages about the photoshopped image on social media: “I was like, ‘what are you guys talking about?’ I was so confused!”
She explains: “Someone took a screenshot of a TikTok of mine from, I don’t even know how long ago… this was probably in June, May or June or July, and I was wearing a swimsuit and they photoshopped my swimsuit top off and tried to expose me with it!"
Charli points out that the original video is still posted on her account: “All of the people that follow me were like, ‘Yeah, that’s 110% fake’, but [other] people believe it. Like, that just goes to tell you."
“I just think it’s so funny cause it’s like the fact that people will believe that and it’s [actually] completely false is hilarious. So, don’t believe everything you see on the internet.
“I wasn’t going to address this because it’s just stupid, but I felt like it was important to get that out there. So, if you see something of me, it was not me. It was a screenshot from a TikTok video of mine from like three months ago. That’s it.”
Charli previously urged fans to think twice before sharing harmful or negative content on social media, telling Seventeen: “We all need to be more conscious of the things we say about people because it can really affect them.”
