"First of all, to blame Charli it was a family vacation," Marc told YouTuber Kevin Wong. "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."

Marc said that they heard the complaints from fans loud and clear.

"Corona is real and people have to take it seriously," Marc explained. "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."

Despite the apology, many fans were left unsatisfied by Marcs response.

"Family vacation? for what? from your million dollar house? you say to take it seriously and you want to protect but you still chose to travel!! if you guys can take a break to disconnect from whats going on in this world then why dont you think about front line workers who are risking their lives, working at the hospital trying to provide the best quality of care for covid patients when they are always understaffed!!!??" one commented.

"They clearly arent taking it seriously considering how many collabs theyve done in 2020 and travelling to The Bahamas! Whats Dixies excuse? Shes 19, a full grown adult and still chose to go. Charli cant use her age as an excuse for everything, its time to start holding these so called 'influencers' accountable," another user wrote under the video.

"Why would any of us be jealous of a family going on vacation during a pandemic??? They wont truly understand the seriousness of COVID until they see it hit close to home. You cant save yourself from it. Some of us havent seen our families in a year cause we know its not safe to travel and wouldnt want to put anyone at risk," another said in response to Wong's suggestion that fans were envious of the trip.

Charli previously slammed others for being "inconsiderate" and 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," the teen said in an Instagram Live before the getaway. "Youre putting other people at risk to get hurt and to be in pain."

For his part, Beck who is dating Dixie, defended the trip and said they were "very cautious."

"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,'" he told Pop Galore.

Charli has not commented on the backlash from the vacation, but the influencer quashed the "hurtful" rumors that her parents make her post online.
