|Controversies||• In November 2020, Charli and her sister (Dixie) landed up in a controversy when they posted a video on their family YouTube channel in which they were seen having a family dinner with James Charles, a YouTuber and beauty guru. The video that earned them criticism showed both the sisters passing rude comments to their personal chef, Aaron May, who had served them seafood that the girls disliked. The sisters also made faces as the chef described the meal. In the video, Charli was also seen expressing her wish to gain 100 million followers. When the video was put online, Charli and Dixie were slammed for their actions and Charlie lost over a million followers on TikTok. Later, putting her words in an Instagram Live video, Charli said,
"You can hate on me for whatever I've done, but the fact that all of this is happening because of a misunderstanding...I just feel like that's not okay."
Aron May, their personal chef, also came in Charli and Dixie's defense, stating, Vanity Fair
"Those girls are the greatest, I love them. It was all fun and games."
• In March 2020, she posted a video on TikTok, which made the blogger Perez Hilton comment on her telling her that her dancing was "inappropriate" for a girl her age. To this, Charli replied that she apologizes, but she was just trying to have fun. While many spoke in support of Charli, Perez faced criticism on Twitter. This did not stop Perez, and he went on to pour scorn at Charli's parents. Perez then made a YouTube video in which he brought Charli's father's January 2014 DUI charge into the light again and even threw remarks on Charli's relationship with Chase Hudson. After the fans could no longer bear Perez's actions, they created a Change.org petition asking TikTok to ban him from their platform. The petition received around 188,000 signatures. Insider
• In October 2019, she posted a video of her performing the 'Renegade' dance to the K Camp song "Lottery" and was given the credit for making the dance popular on social media. After a newspaper published an article in February 2020, talking about the original creator of the dance, a 14-year-old black girl named 'Jalaiah Harmon,' Charli faced huge backlash for not crediting Harmon. To end the issue, Charli collaborated with Harmon in a video and has since then made sure to never post a video without giving credit to the original creator of dances she performs. Vanity Fair
