Super Smash Bros. Melee event threw a dead crab at him following his grand finals victory.

Hungrybox was competing at Pound 2019, a tournament held at Laurel Park in Maryland, taking part in a Melee tournament, which remains one of the most popular fighting games in the world despite the fact that it was released back in 2001.

While Hungrybox is one of the most successful Melee players in the world, his slow playstyle can often draw the ire of fans, while his outspoken nature has also been criticised by some in the Smash community.

Hungrybox was incensed when a crab was thrown at him at Pound 2019’s Melee tournament.

Fan throws crab at Hungrybox

Following the conclusion of Hungrybox’s grand finals victory against Joseph ‘Mang0’ Marquez, the tournament livestream showed a furious Hungrybox holding up a dead crab, turning his attention to the crowd in an attempt to find out who lobbed it at him.

The incensed Team Liquid player questioned the crowd, shouting: “Who threw this at me?” while the casters at the event condemned the action, labelling it as “not ok” and telling the culprit to “show some respect.”

A fan in attendance later uploaded a video of the incident, showing the crab whizz past Hungrybox’s head just moments after the conclusion of his match against Mang0 and the subsequent handshake.

Hungrybox can be seen quizzically looking around, before picking up the dead animal, with the clip cutting off just before he addressed those in attendance. 

Hungrybox made his feelings on what happened to him clear on Twitter, tweeting that he was “sorry for losing [his] temper” writing: “Someone threw a fucking raw crab at me. After a 5 set losers run. Barely missed my head. What the fuck man.”

What happened to the attendee who threw the crab?

Commentator Phil ‘EE’ Visu confirmed that the person who threw the crab at Hungrybox had been identified and caught, and was ejected from the building shortly following the incident.

VGBootCamp COO Matthew ‘Aposl’ Lofton, who hosted the event, also tweeted that they will be permanently banning the guy who threw it, and will be informing other tournament organizers of his identity in the hopes that he will be banned from other events too.

Aposl confirmed that they would not be releasing the name of the attendee who threw the crab to the public at this time.


James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
