The 16-year-old hit the historic figure, just over a year and a half after joining the platform. on till now, only two other TikTok creators have reached 50 million followers. Meanwhile, Addison Rae is just behind her with 69.9 million followers.
Charli tweeted about her achievement and said she couldn’t believe it was happening.
According to Verge’s report, these numbers make her more than twice as big as Will Smith, three times as big as The Rock, four times as big as Selena Gomez, and five times as big as Kylie Jenner and Ariana Grande.
“On YouTube, it took 14 years before any channel hit 100 million. D’Amelio only started posting to TikTok in May 2019, and the app has only been available since August 2018,” according to the report.
