If you’re on social media or on vaping blogs, you may have heard about an influencer who is known as the Vape Queen of TikTok. TikTok has become the most popular shortform video platform in America, and that means that it’s a major spot for talking about vaping.
So, who is this “Vape Queen” everyone talks about? Well, if you don’t know now, chances are high that you probably have heard about her by her regular name…
Who’s the Vape Queen of TikTok?
Believe it or not, it’s Charli D’Amelio—also known as Charlie D. Unlike what many people would guess, she didn’t start out as an influencer known for vaping. She actually got her start on the app thanks to her dance videos.
She became one of the internet’s biggest celebrities as well as one of the biggest TikTok stars of all time. Often flanked by people like Addison Rae and Chase Hudson, she was also a part of the Hype House mania that hit YouTube.
Though she’s only a teenager, she became one of the most followed people on TikTok. She was super wholesome and squeaky clean…Until Perez Hilton got a snapshot of Charli smoking a vape pen in 2020. She was 16 years old when this happened.
How did fans react to seeing the leaked vape video?
Believe it or not, fans were fairly on board with seeing her vape. They gave her the nickname “The Vape Queen” as a result of the leaked video. Well, one fan literally messaged, “Let’s call Charli ‘Vape Queen’,” and that’s how it happened.
So, rather than it being a scandal, it turned into a quirk of her brand.
While many people just said that it was best to let her “do what she wants,” some fans were disappointed. Charli has, in the past, been criticized for promoting the use of nicotine to other teen fans.
With that said, Twitter was particularly vocal about how Charli’s vaping had an impact on her fans. Many a tweet mentioned the Hype House star as a bad influence, so it’s not like she lived without a bit of backlash.
What did Charli D’Amelio vape, anyway?
Here’s the funny thing about the vape used by the 16-year-old influencer: no one knows what kind of devices she was vaping. There’s been plenty of questions among TikTok users about what it could be that was in her vape.
Some people believe it’s a Juul, while others swear its an anxiety pen. Even more think that the teenage content creator may have been vaping a THC vape pen or electronic cigarettes. To date, no one knows what Charli D’ Amelio had vaped.
Has Charli D’Amelio ever addressed the scandal publicly?
At this point in time, Charli has yet to actually address the back story to her strange nickname. Considering that she was only 16 at the time, it may have been better to let her just ignore it. Besides, it’s a bit of “ancient history” for the social media star these days.
Whether she chose to ignore all the flaming and fire on her own, or if she was advised to do so by a PR specialist has yet to be seen. However, the Vape Queen scandal has stopped being a scandal for the most part. She also hasn’t been seen vaping since 2020.
Did Charli’s parents take a side to this scandal?
Surprisingly, no. Charli’s action has yet to be addressed publicly by her parents, too. They have never mentioned it in interviews, nor issued a statement to the press. It seems that they are just happy the TikTok star has been doing well in her career.
For the most part, Charli has proven to be one of the brightest talented people of her generation. Her parents seem to want to make sure that she is still happy doing what she does, rather than worry about vapes.
Of course, we are just speculating. For all we know, she may have had her parents have a talk with her about the dangers of vaping.
Why would Charli D’Amelio vape?
Charli has over 142 million fans and followers on social media. For most of us, the idea of being under such scrutiny is mind-boggling. When you take that information and remember that she is now 18 years old, it’s easy to see why she may have a need to chill out.
The Queen of Vaping openly admitted that she struggled with anxiety. So, the theory of her using anxiety pens does make a lot of sense in context. Many fans speculate that she uses e-cigarettes and anxiety pens as a way to calm down.
Of course, there’s also the possibility that she was just a teenage girl who wanted to experiment with vaping. She’s not the first person to do this, nor will she likely be the last person to get curious about vapes.
Does Charli D’Amelio have a vape line?
You would think that a girl called the “Vape Queen” would have jumped on the chance to have a line of vapes as part of her brand. However, that isn’t the case. Charli D’Amelio does not have a vape line associated with her brand.
The basic gist of the story is that 16-year-old TikTok star Charli D’Amelio became the Vape Queen of social media due to a leaked video from Perez Hilton. While it’s not certain whether she still vapes, the nickname stuck and it’s clear she’s over the drama surrounding it.
Charli has not addressed the issue publicly and does not seem to be interested in bringing up the history, either. So, maybe it’s time to leave it be.
