TikTok star Chase Hudson, aka Lil Huddy, has fired back after being criticized for his outfit choice in one of his latest videos.

Chase Hudson has quickly become one of the biggest creators on TikTok, with just under 20 million followers on the platform.

While the online star has been no stranger to criticism since his rise to the top, with the recent Hype House founder feud and for his public relationship with Charli D’Amelio, he recently fired back at commenters who had criticized his dress sense.

Chase Hudson received a lot of backlash after his public breakup with Charli D’Amelio.

Hudson uploaded a video on May 9, which involved him dancing in a crop top from his new merch collection and was met with a lot of backlash for his outfit choice.

As crop tops are typically seen as women’s clothing, the TikTok star raised a lot of eyebrows with the latest upload.

But, Hudson responded, saying that he was “taking a stand against toxic masculinity.”

After receiving some harsh comments, Lil Huddy replied to a fan who had asked why he was wearing the crop top, revealing the decision behind his clothes.

Chase said that he was wearing a crop top to stand up against “toxic masculinity” and inspire others to display their freedom of expression when it comes to clothing.

He called for others not to be shy about their personal style, saying “I want people to wear whatever tf it is that they want to wear.”

After revealing the motives behind the outfit choice, the Hype House star received plenty of support from fans, and the video itself has garnered over 2.4 million likes on TikTok.

It might not mean that everyone will be wearing crop tops going forward, but the popular creator has likely inspired many of his fans to be more comfortable in whatever they choose to wear.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
