Feels familiar.”
Trisha responded to James’ tweet via her personal TikTok account. In a new TikTok video, Trisha stated that James constantly plays the “victim” in every situation. She added, “Don’t you ever put me in the same category as giving someone death threats. I have never given someone death threats ever.”

The two sisters, who are both massive TikTok stars were criticized and “canceled” by the internet after a video was released of Charli and her sister not liking the Spanish Paella their personal chef cooked for them. With a lot of backlash from viewers, the two sisters were labeled as “ungrateful” and “rude,” and Charli also made a comment about her enormous TikTok following.
Fans immediately flooded social media to share their negative thoughts about the teen star, which prompted James to come to her defense.
Dixie also addressed the drama in a TikTok video explaining that she has a very good relationship with the chef and that she was pranked into eating escargot(aka snails), which caused the reaction viewers saw in the video.
