Southern Charm fans have recently taken notice of Danni Baird’s eye, which appeared to be twitching in a December episode.
During the December 10, 2020, episode, fans took to social media to express concern over the reality star’s well-being after she appeared to be dealing with an eye twitch. Although Baird has been a featured personality on the show since its beginning in 2014, her official title is that of a friend rather than a member of the main cast.
Nonetheless, Baird has amassed a loyal following.
Many of her fans are now questioning whether she is doing OK following the episode.
Here’s what you need to know:
Baird Has Not Addressed Her Eye Twitch
Baird has not publicly addressed her fans’ concerns over her eye, leaving many to continue speculating online.
Some fans have suggested that the twitch could stem from a nervous tic, according to Distractify.
The outlet reported, “Let’s not forget that things are often tense between some of the cast members on Southern Charm and it wouldn’t be surprising to learn that Danni was just feeling the standard stress during that time.”
However, a Reddit thread titled “Dani is tweaking. Watching her on the couch was alarming.” featured comments by fans speculating that the twitch could stem from drug use related to an eating disorder.
“To me it’s clear she is very, very deep in the thralls of anorexia, which makes her display total addict behavior. I never thought about her being on something but I would not be surprised,” Reddit user tergesa wrote.
“That is mere speculation, though, and there has been no confirmed evidence of either part of the claim,” Distractify wrote.
According to Screen Rant, Baird joined the show in 2014 as a friend of former full-time cast member Cameran Eubanks.
Season 7 of Southern Charm Highlights Baird’s Learning Process of Understanding Black Oppression
According to Distractify, Baird undergoes a learning process of understanding Black oppression during season seven of Southern Charm — which was filmed throughout the coronavirus pandemic as well as the nationwide protests spurred from the May killing of George Floyd.
The death of Floyd, an unarmed Black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota, sparked the removal of many Confederate statues across the United States.
During the seventh season of the show, viewers witness the removal of a statue of former Vice President John C. Calhoun, a known slave oppressor, from Charleston, South Carolina, according to Distractify.
Baird told Entertainment Tonight that she learned a lot from the experience.
“I took away a lot that day,” she shared with the outlet. “It was really enlightening. I had chill bumps at the statue. It was deep, and I never would’ve thought that would’ve happened that day.
“Like, I just was there to support … There was a lot of emotion and I hope that people see that,” she added.
E! Online reported that “Calhoun was a fervent believer in slavery and white supremacy.”
“Controversy surrounding Charleston’s Calhoun statue was a main storyline on tonight’s Southern Charm amid the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests over police brutality and racial inequality in this county,” the outlet continued.
