Fedmyster’s DIY trampoline livestream ends in disaster

OfflineTV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan made a spectacular mistake during his livestream, accidentally smashing a floor-to-ceiling window in the OTV house while attempting to assemble a trampoline.

Fed bought a trampoline for the OfflineTV house, presumably to give residents something fun to do while they’re not allowed to go outside and partake in their usual activities, and took it upon himself to build it.

It looked like all was going smoothly, coming together at a decent pace and looking exactly as it should, but a rogue spring managed to ruin the entire thing.

The trampoline appeared to be mostly complete – a majority of the springs were in place and it seemed to be coming together as planned. But, of course, in the name of content, the trampoline had other ideas.

While Fedmyster was attempting to smack a spring into place, it somehow ended up bouncing out of the metal base and the built tension saw it flung at a ridiculous speed towards the OfflineTV house and flying straight through the window.

It was so fast that both Fed and his viewers couldn’t keep up with the spring and, luckily Michael Reeves – who had been offering his moral support throughout the DIY stream – was safely inside, but had he not been this could have ended in a serious injury.

While at first Fed looks absolutely horrified, he and Michael end up laughing about it, obviously just stunned at what happened.

Later on, OfflineTV co-founder Scarra appeared and, after tweeting about how “Scarra is going to kill [him],” Fed explained exactly what happened and the former League of Legends pro laughed it off, saying that he’s just glad nobody got hurt.

They might be lucky enough to only have to replace the one window as the other parts of the sliding door seem unaffected, but it could be a costly venture – especially during these times where people aren’t strictly allowed to go out.

Nonetheless, Fed got to work again a little while later and finished assembling the trampoline, with no more shattered windows in sight.

Noah Beck & Griffin Johnson under fire for “cancel culture” comments

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Griffin Johnson are taking heat from critics due to their divisive comments on “cancel culture,” as told during an episode of Johnson’s “Sway Way” podcast.

Also known as “call-out culture,” the term “cancel culture” has become a popular phrase in the past few years as social media has flourished, allowing users to highlight abuse, bad behavior, or other negative actions from people online.

When these bad behaviors are brought to light, the person responsible is usually called out, boycotted and ostracized, causing them to be publicly shamed and often ousted from their professional and social circles due to the resulting backlash.

“Cancel culture” itself is a divisive term, with many believing that it outright doesn’t exist, as those being “canceled” deserve to be called out for their actions and that those who are “canceled” are never truly brought to justice from the outrage.

Still, others feel that “cancel culture” is going too far and is resulting in a toxic online environment — but either way, people are no longer willing to abide bad behavior from anyone, and social media has given users a platform to speak up against things they consider to be unjust.

TikTokers and Sway House members Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck recently spoke out on the social phenomenon during an episode of the Sway Way podcast — and their thoughts on the subject have sparked quite a bit of backlash against them.

“People are getting canceled for things that were totally acceptable,” Beck said. “I don’t want to say that people have gotten really sensitive, but at the same time, they have, and it’s like… there were some things that were acceptable back then that people could say, now it comes back on them five, 10 years later.”

“I mean, I’ve done some things in my past where they come off as controversial today, but they weren’t that deep,” Beck continued, referencing his own controversial history on social media. “I can see why people think it’s a big deal now, but it’s like… I never thought I would have this platform. I never thought I would have this stage. I was growing up just playing soccer. I liked a few tweets, but I didn’t think anything of it at the time.”

Needless to say, both Beck and Johnson have received a substantial amount of criticism from listeners, with one user writing: “He really said that he never thought he would have gotten famous… so if you’re not famous, you can be homophobic and it’s not a big deal?”

Both boys have yet to speak out on the outrage, which only continues to grow in wake of their already storied history of sparking division among TikTok viewers.
