100 Thieves punish CouRage for Star Wars opinion by vandalizing his room

Streamer and renowned Star Wars hater Jack “CouRage” Dunlop got a surprise from his fellow 100 Thieves members all based on his least-favorite cinematic franchise.

CouRage’s dislike for Star Wars is no secret with the esports personality regularly attempting to roast the series and it’s fans.

One of his most controversial claims is that “Transformers > Star Wars”, a statement that other streamers like Ninja, have thrown back in his face time and time again.

The Star Wars fans strike back

On Friday October 25 CouRage posted pictures of what looked like some his fellow 100 Thieves members covering his room in Star Wars memorabilia.

There were printed out posters covering every surface except the ceiling, a Yoda statue, and even a new Star Wars bedspread.

But the pranksters also look to be hanging something on the window – turns out it’s a massive print out of the streamer’s infamous recent tweet comparing Star Wars to Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and more.

CouRage has really leaned into the Star Wars hate over the last year and it seems like his latest tweet about the films was the last straw for the hardcore pranksters.

Apparently some people on 100T disagreed with the idea enough to go to the trouble of putting all of the stuff back on his walls after plastering them with Star Wars images.

The Star Wars sheets are a nice touch too, but sadly the streamer probably won’t be holding onto them after he cleans up – but you never know.

The prank seems to have been conducted by the 100T group of streamers called “The Mob”, who CouRage has gone back and forth with in the past.

This unexpected Star Wars room makeover probably won’t do anything to change his opinion on the franchise, but it was entertaining nonetheless.

Mr Beast giving $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him the hardest

In another wacky challenge, YouTuber Mr Beast has announced he will award $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him, or get the most likes in comparison to his tweet, with fandoms battling it out to have their fave crowned the winner.

Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a Mr Beast is well known for his grand scale challenges. And with 45 million subscribers on YouTube, he certainly has the means to facilitate them, often partnering up with his huge audience to make great things happen.

On the charitable front, one of Mr Beast’s most ambitious projects was ‘Team Trees,’ where he endeavored to raise the money required to plant 20,000,000 trees. He definitely succeeded, with over 500,000 unique users donating to the campaign.

Instagram: MrBeastMrBeast and his crew of over 600 YouTubers has raised over $20 million for Team Trees.

Among the philanthropy, Donaldson also previously set out to break some online records just for the fun of it. He set out to beat PewDiePie and have one of his videos become the most liked non-music video on YouTube. The video currently has a whopping 15 million likes.

With that in mind, he set his Twitter followers the task of ‘ratio-ing’ his original tweet. To ‘ratio’ someone means either for the number of comments to far outweigh the likes (usually when something is controversial,) or in this case to far outweigh the likes of the original tweet. Essentially, you have to get more likes than Mr Beast himself.

Originally, it looked like popular YouTuber Corpse Husband was going to win the money thanks to his reply tweet of a simple smiley face. Alongside the rise of Among Us, Corpse has experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent months, and said that he would be donating 100% of the money if won to charity.

However, just as it was looking as if Corpse would be sailing to victory unrivalled, a tweet from a BTS fan’s account saying “I know this is impossible but, If ever I win the funds will be directly donated to Funds for Bangtan and BorahaeFunds” began to pick up traction.

Their victory might not be as impossible as they first thought, with dedicated fans around the globe heading in droves to boost the tweet.

Mr Beast even joked “Hey Kpop fans, you about to let Minecraft youtubers show you up like this? Are they the new biggest fan base?”

At the time of writing, Mr Beast’s original tweet has 200,000 likes, Corpse Husband’s 233,000 likes, and BTS_History613’s tweet at 239,000. But with the numbers changing rapidly by the second, who the ultimate winner will be is yet unclear.
