TikTok's Charli D'Amelio Breaks Down over Chase Hudson Drama: 'It Should Not Have Happened'
"I never come on here and show my true emotions, it's just you guys need to know it's never okay to tell anyone to kill themselves, it's never okay to just blatantly make fun of people for them making a mistake," she said.
She also offered an apology to both Barrett and Hudson, revealing that she had a lengthy conversation with her ex after the incident.
"Chase, I'm very sorry that you're getting hate. You do not deserve to be told the awful things that people are telling you to do," she said, holding back tears. "I still love Chase from the bottom of my heart, no matter what has happened."
"I feel that it's really important for you guys to know that you should never hate on anyone for their mistakes because everyone makes mistakes, the difference is, we are handling normal high school drama in front of millions of people," she continued.
In a statement to PEOPLE on Tuesday, Barrett decried the hate she has received online over the drama, revealing she's considered quitting social media.
"I’m only going to speak on this matter once because there are far more important things happening in the world right now. I'm tired of being everyone's scapegoat, no matter what I say or what people say I've done, I get hate online. Yes, Chase kissed me & nothing else happened after that. I can speak for the both of us that it didn’t mean anything," she says. "The narrative that is being spun around me is one of hate and slut shaming, and the constant DM's and emails of people telling me i’m stupid and should kill myself are getting to be too much for to me bear. I’ve deleted my apps off my phone and only re-download to post – it's gotten so bad. it makes me want to quit social media altogether. I’m thankful for my true friends, my team, and finding solace in the studio on a daily basis. My music has been my therapy, and I’m excited to share my side of the story and my truth through my music with the world when it's ready."
