Chase Hudson has apologized to his fans, as well as his ex-partner Charli D’Amelio, as tensions about the pair’s April break-up flared up on social media last week. The TikTok star also stated that he wants to set “a better example” for his followers.

It looks like the Tiktok Apocalypse has finally fizzled out. After tensions flared last week between Hudson and former partner Charli D’Amelio, both sides have apologized to one another.

Rumors about Hudson cheating on D’Amelio with Josh Richard’s ex-partner Nessa Barrett were confirmed to be true, with Charli going on a tweeting spree about their break-up. She dismissed Hudson’s original defense of being single when the “kiss” happened.

D’Amelio and Hudson broke up in April.

“You shouldn’t have come to my house without telling me [about the kiss,” D’Amelio said in a now-deleted tweet.

While the heavyweights of TikTok collided, with everyone taking sides, it seems all has been made up in the days since. There was one outlier ⁠— Hudson himself ⁠— who hadn’t spoken publicly since the blowup. However, he finally released a statement on July 13, apologizing for his actions.

“I know I haven’t been that active on social media since last Monday, but I really just wanted to come on here and really apologize to you guys for the way things unfolded online,” Hudson stated on an Instagram story.

He added that he shouldn’t have aired the drama online. He also said that he reached out to Charli, as well as some of the Sway boys including Bryce Hall, to apologize to them before making the video.

“I should have just done my part and kept it offline. I made sure to apologize to Charli, and I made sure to talk everything through with the Sway boys. Everything is handled, but it still should never have happened.”

“I’ll be learning a lot from this as a person, growing from it, and setting a better example for all you guys.”

Charli apologized late last week, revealing she felt “guilty” over the drama as it unfolded.

““The drama that has happened in the last few days was handled completely immaturely, myself included,” she said. “It should not have happened online, and it breaks my heart to see the people that I love get hate. It makes me feel so guilty that I had any part [of it].”

“I apologize for what I said. I was extremely hurt, and I felt betrayed. So, I did what I had to do to make myself feel better, but I know that was not the right thing to do, and I will make sure that does not happen again.”

Gamer Dad goes viral after son shares hilariously chaotic Overwatch gameplay

An extremely energetic parent has gone viral on Twitter for his unique Overwatch playstyle that equates to a real workout while playing as Lucio.

An enthusiastic Dad has been shared all across Twitter for his hilarious reactions while playing Overwatch. He’s not calling enemies out, nor is he getting overly hype with his team.

Instead, this viral video is all about his chaotic movement.

While playing some Deathmatch as Lucio, this parent got all too immersed in the game. Almost every jump, strafe, and dodge was mirrored in real life. 

Just how turning your controller helps turn faster in any game, this Dad took that mantra to an all-new level, applying it to every movement in Overwatch.

As fights came into effect, he was sliding all over the place trying to evade incoming fire. Given that Lucio is one of the most mobile heroes in the game, he was consistently getting into battle and having to reposition.

These weren’t subtle movements either. He was properly moving from side to side, even pushing away from the keyboard and mouse at times. There was rarely a moment where he remained still in front of the monitor.

“My dad plays Overwatch like this,” ‘biggestsonicfan’ said on Twitter. “He jerks around, dodging and peeking around corners. He lifts his mouse a lot. He loses his breath.”

It didn’t take long for social media to explode over the heartwarming video. Hundreds of thousands of views later and gamers from all scenes have chimed in to support the Dad’s efforts. Even Lucio’s voice actor Jonny Cruze caught wind of the viral clip. “He plays Lucio. I am honored.”

There must be some method behind the madness, however. Not only did the Dad secure some kills while in this groove, but they even finished among the top. “That was fun,” he said after the match. “Top four finish!”

Unfortunately, this type of extreme playstyle comes at a cost. “This is chair four,” the son followed up on Twitter. “The carpet under him is completely ripped up, and in the video, you can see light marks on his desk where the chair has dented it.
