OG influencer Trisha Paytas has admitted that she “feels bad” for poking fun at TikTok stars Charli D’Amelio and Loren Gray in the past.
Trisha Paytas is a new mom to baby Malibu Barbie, and she says that becoming a parent has helped reframe her mindset around certain topics.
After giving birth in September, Paytas is making the rounds on podcasts and interviews, most recently appearing in an episode of the Zach Sang show on December 15.
During the conversation, Paytas admitted that she regretted certain comments she made about younger influencers in the past — most notably Loren Gray and Charli D’Amelio.
Paytas hit out at Gray during an episode of her now-defunct ‘Frenemies’ podcast with H3H3’s Ethan Klein, calling the TikToker “that girl that no one knows” (something Gray jokingly said was a “humbling moment” in her career).
Paytas also uploaded several videos calling the D’Amelio sisters (Charli and Dixie) “ungrateful,” pointing out viral moments like the time Dixie gagged at escargot made by her family’s personal chef.
In fact, Charli herself called out Trisha Paytas in a TikTok live stream, calling the influencer “completely rude” and saying “you have your own problems, please stop worrying about mine.”
Two years later, Paytas says that she isn’t a fan of how she acted toward the young TikTok stars and is reevaluating her mindset toward youths trying to make it in the industry.

“I felt so bad. I was like, why am I picking on this little girl?” Paytas said. “I felt so bad. I was like, oh my god, I look so embarrassing. It’s like when Wendy Williams would come for people, and you’re just like, ugh. You’re like this old person.”
“I don’t wanna be this old hag coming for little kids, you know what I mean?” she continued. “I had to reevaluate. Same thing with Charli D’Amelio and Dixie D’Amelio. I would clown on her music. Like, why? Why was I doing that? I was such a hater. I felt so bad.”

Although Loren nor the D’Amelio sisters have yet to publicly respond to Paytas’ comments, it’s clear that the new mom regrets her past comments toward the TikTokers — two of which are coming back for a third season of the D’Amelio Show next year.
