Charli D’Amelio (16), without doubt, is one of TikTok’s most bright shining gems. The teenager has accumulated a massive 107.2 million followers and has become the most followed person on the platform in a relatively short period of time. And that level of fame, of course, comes with loads of different issues such as dealing will clout hungry doppelgangers on a day to day basis. However, this time around the story is slightly different as one of Charli’s lookalikes has been caught using a face-swapping filter to achieve the look.
Reaching 1.1 Million Followers In Less Than A Month
Julia, going by the username of @limnplus, posted her first TikTok clip on the 12th of January. And although her first attempt at gaining worldwide TikTok fame was quite successful, reaching nearly 9 million views, the clip has been removed from Julia’s profile since.
It’s also worth noting that the account hit 1.1 million followers in less than a month due to her similarity with the younger D’Amelio sister being crystal clear. Some people even claimed Charli herself is using the account in question to avoid her content being supervised by her parents Marc and Heidi D’Amelio at all times.
Julia’s most popular TikTok upload is now close to reaching 35.2 million views and can be seen below:
Julia Exposed By A Fellow TikTok Creator
Soon after hitting one million followers, Charli D’Amelio’s doppelganger got exposed by a fellow TikTok creator known by the username of @itsacrello. The nineteen-year-old TikToker posted a video talking about Julia and quickly called her out for what she really is.
It turned out that one of Julia’s videos, which has already been removed from her account, showcased Charli’s imitator literally losing her face. In the video, Julia’s face-swapping filter apparently messed itself up due to her jumping up and down. Acrello suggested that this wouldn’t have happened unless the doppelganger is actually using some kind of a face-swapping filter to resemble Charli’s appearance.
@limnplus this you? #fyp
People were also suggesting that Charli’s face is being used by an American legging company. This rumor arose as a link to their website has been mentioned in Julia’s account description. On top of that, the company name ‘Limn Plus’ also matches Julia’s account name. Suspicious, don’t you think?
People Describe Julia’s Obsession With Charli As Super Scary
When it comes to the general public’s opinion of Julia’s desperate attempts to look exactly like the sixteen-year-old Charli, it’s pretty clear that the TikTok community is in no way supportive of this type of activity. Phrases such as ‘Walmart version of Charli’ and ‘Don’t be shy to show us your real face’ are being targeted Julia’s way nonstop.
People seemed to agree that in this case, Charli’s face is clearly being used for clout. Julia’s obsession with looking like Charli was also labeled as scary and super unfitting.
