Charli D'Amelio found herself in a rather awkward situation on social media this week as fans of the TikTok sensation took over a Twitter trend meant for another celebrity.
The 16-year-old professional dancer's fans assumed a trending hashtag on Twitter, "HereForCharli," was dedicated to her, when in reality it was meant for pop star, Charli XCX.
Charli initially responded to her fans but then deleted the tweet, which read: "I am looking through the 'hereforcharli' hashtag and oh my goodness you are all so sweet to me you have no idea how much your kind words warm my heart I am so lucky to have you all by my side!! I love you bebs 💕💕"
Once D'Amelio's fans flooded the hashtag with support and love for the TikTok star, many diehard Sophie fans rushed to Twitter to clarify the real meaning behind the hashtag.
In fact, Sophie fans this week used the "HereForCharli" hashtag to show support and appreciation for Charli XCX, who was a longtime friend and collaborator of the late electronic pop star, who tragically passed away at the age of 34 on January 30, after "she had climbed up to watch the full moon and accidentally slipped and fell."
Some have also claimed that the HereForCharli hashtag previously existed at another point to show support for D'Amelio, giving another possible explanation for the confusion.
"Her fans are very weird for playing along instead of informing her that the hashtag was for Charli XCX and not her," a confused user wrote on Twitter.
While another grieving fan tweeted: "#hereforcharli is NOT for charli d'amelio, it's to comfort and appreciate charli xcx after SOPHIE's tragic passing. please stop using it as a d'amelio appreciation hashtag. it's EXTREMELY disrespectful and distasteful especially to the lgbt people sophie influenced and helped."
Still coping with the loss of her beloved friend, Charli XCX penned a heart felt message dedicated to Sophie: "It's really hard for me to sum up the special connection I felt with such an amazing person who completely changed my life. There are so many memories, so many details, so many different views and incredible feelings and stories. It's impossible to summarize the journey I went on with Sophie."
