CHARLIE D’AMELIO RENEGADE CONTROVERSY
Charlie took over the internet after she uploaded her dance video of the song “Renegade” also known as lottery. That was the time when she grabbed the attention of millions of people within no time.

This whole matter was brought under attention by Taylor Lorenz’s tweet, she came forward and wrote:
“ 14 year old Jalaiah Harmon does the original version of the renegade dance that she choreographed in her Atlanta bedroom last fall. Months later, it became the biggest thing on the internet and she got no credit.”
After realisation, people did have mixed sentiments and held natural views on how another white girl snatched the right of a black girl. However, after all the backlash that was given to D’amelio, she finally stepped forward and denied that she knew about the original dance moves and that she would want to collaborate with her soon.
