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.[ad name=”article3″]
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.
