Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke fell out of her seat while taking on the Beanboozled jelly bean challenge with Twitch streamer Seán ‘Jacksepticeye’ McLoughlin.

Clearly there weren’t any foul-tasting jelly beans in Westeros, where Clarke portrayed Danaerys Targaryen in the HBO smash hit Game of Thrones, which ended back in May 2019.

In an appearance on Jackscepticeye’s Twitch channel though, the “Mother of Dragons” came across the disgusting Beenboozled game, which offers candy which comes in two different flavors – one which is lovely, and one that is absolutely disgusting!

Instagram: emilia_clarkeEmilia Clarke teamed up with Jackscepticeye, who dressed up as her co-star Kit Harrington.

With the Irishman holding the box of beans, a concerned-looking Clarke dipped her hand in, and pulled out a pinkish piece of candy, holding it up and announcing that it was either “Strawberry banana smoothie or dead fish.”

After trying to smell it to see if it gave off a whiff on what it could be, the actress popped it into her mouth, but it quickly became obvious which version of the candy she had got, with an expression of horror coming over her face as she spat it out, and slid off the sofa in anguish.

“That’s really disgusting guys,” Clarke mumbled into the microphone as she lay on the floor. “That’s really gross.” There wasn’t much sympathy from her YouTuber partner though, who immediately claimed she was dead!

After her hilarious trip to the floor, Clarke got up just in time to laugh along with the Irishman, who was begging the stream director not to give fans a wide-angle shot of his Jon Snow costume.

Emilia and Jacksepticeye were teaming up to raise money for the actress’ charity SameYou, an organization started by the actress to raise funds and help increase neuro-rehabilitation access following brain injuries and stroke, with the 32-year-old revealing she suffered from two aneurysms.

The stream was a resounding success, with the pair raising over $260,000 in their four-hour stream.

TikTok star and singer Dixie D’Amelio has deleted the teaser for her upcoming song with rapper Wiz Khalifa after receiving overwhelming negative criticism from viewers. Her mother has also released a lengthy statement on the matter.

Dixie D’Amelio is a household name in the social media age; the older sister to Charli D’Amelio (TikTok’s most-followed creator), Dixie has carved her own path, most notably releasing her own original songs with such features as Lil Mosey and, most recently, Wiz Khalifa.

However, it doesn’t seem that online critics are too pleased with her music, as seen by the oodles of negative comments on the teaser for her upcoming song with Khalifa, which she initially posted to TikTok.

Many commenters brutally roasted the TikTok star’s lyrics and singing ability, with one writing, “Does she really think she’s a singer now?”

“God help you and your lyrics,” another wrote.

Dixie has since removed the teaser in wake of the criticism, taking to Twitter to vent about her frustration regarding the overwhelming negativity.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie wrote. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she continued.

Dixie’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, has also spoken out on the issue in a lengthy Instagram stories post.

“To those sh***ing on people who are doing things they love and are getting attention for it — you should find something you love and go do it!” she said. “To anyone who takes the time to type hate towards someone who is having fun and doing what they love, please know you are a classic case of a weak person who is truly pathetic.”

It doesn’t look like Dixie’s nor her mother’s response to the issue is getting any sympathy from critics, though, who continue to levy negativity against the TikTok family royalty for their attitude toward the situation.

“When you’re rich yeah, it’s easy to get those ‘million of chances to do things they love,’” one critic replied.

“Anything you put on the Internet is going to get hate no matter what you do,” another chimed in. “She’s just going to have to get over that and keep her posts up and move forward.”

What’s your take on the situation? Do you think the hate toward Dixie’s creative pursuits is becoming too overwhelming? Or do you think Dixie’s mom has a point about the constant trolling? Let us know on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!
