Here's the deal. the TikTok stars nearly got canceled after a million followers jumped ship following a family dinner that saw the sisters being bratty about the menu, specifically the snails.

The TikTok stars recently posted a YouTube video on their family channel, which featured the sisters sitting down with their parents and friend James Charles for a dinner prepared by chef Aaron May. She then later asked for "dino nuggets".

James Charles has taken to Twitter to defend Charli following the nasty hate messages she's been receiving. He confirmed that it was snails and Dixie and Charli did not hide their disgust.

Dixie and Charli have lost hundreds of thousands of followers on TikTok since the video was released, with netizens accusing them of being "rude" and "disrespectful".

At one point, after the group had been served the main course, Dixie was seen gagging as she prodded at something on her plate. She then ran to a sink to throw up.

The video sparked a fierce backlash on YouTube and social media.

On Monday, a vaccine candidate from biotechnology firm Moderna clocked in with almost 95 percent efficacy at an early analysis. This will require pharmaceutical companies to continue their studies, even after they apply for emergency authorization.

Her followers reportedly dropped to 98.5 million.

The young dancer wanted to reach 100 million followers by the end of the year, but after uploading the video to YouTube, social networks began to boil against the tiktoker due to her disrespectful gestures.

On Instagram, Twitter and other platforms, she and her sister appear to have gained followers.

Dixie lost fewer followers as a result of the backlash, plunging from 43.9 million to 43.8 million followers in 24 hours, according to the Daily Mail.

She explained how the situation got out of hand and how people are going to follow their thoughts only no matter how she handles it and explains it.

In the video, Dixie can be seen doing the usual stereotypical TikTok dances in an ironic way with audio from Trisha Paytas rapping along to NWA's "F*** the Police". She further said how these people will never be a part of her life in the future and she is fine with it. So, when they saw the snails, they were like, 'Oh, let's get her and try and see if we can get a reaction out of her.' So basically, that clip - that wasn't in the original video - is my team and chef Aaron May trying to convince me to try snail knowing that I would have a reaction. As Hank Green notes in a TikTok about the D'Amelio situation: "People love tearing down teen girls when they make little mistakes but the big teen boys make colossal fuckups and get free passes all the time".
