In the early hours of Friday, May 15, Charli D’Amelio’s Instagram page mysteriously completely disappeared, and nobody was quite sure why – but now we know.

D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed star, with over 50 million followers on the platform and, most likely, career prospects that will keep her set up for life.

Naturally, with such a huge online presence, her popularity expands to other social media platforms too and has amassed over 18 million followers on Instagram, but now the account doesn’t exist at all thanks to a huge mishap.

Charli has built a huge following on Instagram as well as TikTok.

Although at first fans were absolutely baffled, the air was quickly cleared by Charli’s mother, Heidi, in a funny tweet that really shows exactly what kind of people the D’Amelio family are.

Saying that she was woken up at 4am by a mixture of laughing and crying, Heidi says she found the noise coming from Charli herself, obviously in hysterics as she managed to accidentally delete her own Instagram account.

Following it up with a simple “love you CharChar,” Heidi and her family clearly aren’t that concerned about the matter, and will probably be expecting to rectify it as soon as possible.

Charli herself hasn’t yet commented on the accident, though she did put out a tweet shortly after simply saying that she’s “not the brightest.”

So it’s clear that Charli, somehow, managed to delete her own Instagram account and the 18m followers that came with it. When she can get it back, or if she even can at all, remains a mystery.

Judging by how lighthearted both Charli and Heidi are speaking of the incident suggests it will be rectified in the long run, but fans might have to wait a little longer before any Charli content hits their Instagram feed again.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
