On Thursday during the Overwatch League, ‘Hunger Games’ actor Josh Hutcherson absolutely destroyed console Overwatch players after being prompted with a simple question from casters.

Hutcherson played the character Peeta in the Hunger Games movies and now stars in the Hulu series “Futureman”- plus, it turns out he’s a pretty huge Overwatch fan, as well.

Whenever a celebrity makes an appearance at the Overwatch League, casters like to get them up on stage to talk about the game but this time, Hutcherson may have given them more than they bargained for.

During halftime for the Philadelphia Fusion v. Los Angeles Valiant match on Thursday, Overwatch League host Malik Forté asked Hutcherson who among the Overwatch League talent would be able to save the world based on their video game skill.

“Well… you play console,” Hutcherson said, as he and the crowd broke down into laughter. “You like tickling the sticks.”

“I’m not going to respond to that because I’m on the clock right now,” Malik, who wasn’t having any of it, fired back.

After the brutal assault on console players, Malik had a bit of difficulty composing himself, but eventually managed to finish the segment.

Hutcherson wasn’t done though, and even managed to take a shot at Brennon ‘Bren’ Hook’s flamboyant jacket choice.

Console Overwatch players have a hard enough time already, they’re the last to get to try out new heroes and updates unless they also have Overwatch on a PC, since there’s no PTR available on console; but that doesn’t mean they deserve to get disrespected like this.

TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
