Shutting it down. Marc DAmelio is defending his 16-year-old daughter, Charli DAmelio, after she was criticized for traveling during the coronavirus pandemic last month.

Marc, 52, spoke out about the scandal during a recent conversation with YouTuber Kevin Wong after Charli and 19-year-old Dixie DAmelio both faced backlash on social media for their New Years Eve visit to the Bahamas. First of all, to blame Charli it was a family vacation, Marc explained. Shes 16 so she has no say in where were going. So, you guys can put it on me, but we did what we had to do, you know, we went away.

Health experts have recommended not traveling during the COVID-19 crisis to help reduce the spread of the virus. However, Marc assured fans that his daughters heard their concerns loud and clear and tried to be as safe as possible.

Corona is real and people have to take it seriously, Marc said. We left a hotbed and went to a place where there was very little corona, but we do take it seriously and we want to protect other people and we dont take it lightly. Its a real virus and many people have gotten killed and died from it.

Charli and her sister were among several TikTok stars including Noah Beck, Chase Hudson, Avani Gregg and Madi Monroe who sparked controversy before the new year when pics and videos surfaced online of their tropical getaway. As the social media personalities were swarmed with negative comments, beauty YouTuber James Charles chimed in with a cheeky remark.

Waking up this morning in Los Angeles, the 21-year-old joked in an Instagram Story amid the scandal, clearing the air for any fans who thought he was also out of the country. Just thought Id let yall know since some people seem to think Im elsewhere lmfao.

Charlis travels came as a shock to some of her followers, especially since she had previously clapped back at inconsiderate people who were partying during the pandemic. You may think, Oh, this isnt going to affect me, its not that bad. Youre thinking youre a teenager, youre immune, she said during an Instagram Live before her vacation sparked controversy. Youre putting other people at risk to get hurt and to be in pain.

While the Connecticut native hasnt addressed the backlash herself, Beck, 19, who is dating Dixie, defended the groups Bahamas trip earlier this month and claimed that they were all very cautious while abroad.

It is what it is, he told Pop Galore at the time. I think, especially the business were in, its, like, you need some time to kind of disconnect for a little. Thats what that was meant for. It was just a little trip to getaway. No matter what we do in life, people are going to say things. I always say, Do what makes you happy.'
