Why Did Dixie D’Amelio Depart Twitter? Followers Assume It Has To Do With Trump – Thebritishjournal

The D’Amelio clan is in the midst of another rumor storm, but this time it’s all about Dixie D’Amelio. The 19-year-old TikTok star posted a goodbye tweet and fans are speculating it’s for a specific reason. If you’re wondering why Dixie D’Amelio left Twitter, it ~might~ have something to do with Trump, according to a fan theory.

On Friday, Jan. 8, D’Amelio left Twitter behind with a final post. “Goodbye Twitter… It was fun,” she wrote. She also included a white heart emoji at the end of her post. Fans began speculating that the influencer opted out of the social media platform due to a movement in support of President Donald Trump. ICYMI, Twitter banned Trump on Jan. 8, in light of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

“Why are ppl getting routinely surprised that Dixie D’amelio is a Trump supporter,” one Twitter user wrote. “Her name is literally DIXIE as in the Dixie south, she goes to the University of ALABAMA, her Republican dad is heavily into politics, & she posted Trump signs on her vsco for an aesthetic.” The fan was referencing a 2017 VSCO post that featured several Trump-Pence campaign signs on the wall. It’s important to note D’Amelio posted a TikTok in May 2020 addressing the resurfaced post. In her post, she claimed she “never supported Trump” and that she was an “independent voter.” She also told a fan in the comments section the photo was not of her home, and remarked that she was a 15-year-old who, at the time, “didn’t give two sh*ts about politics.”

The D’Amelio sisters have been pretty quiet about their political affiliations, but their father, Marc D’Amelio, previously ran for Connecticut State Senate in 2018 as a Republican.

Whatever her reason, fans think that it’s a show of loyalty for Trump following his account ban, since she deactivated her account mere moments after Twitter suspended Trump’s account:
