Make-up and beauty influencer Jeffree Star has responded to a mocking tweet by claiming that he currently has three NBA players in his DM’s, and social media immediately went wild.

Jeffree Star has never been one to shy away from attention, having built a loyal fanbase and huge career out of his forthright nature alongside his talent and eye for what is and isn’t great.

Now, he has responded to a tweet mocking him to exemplify that no matter what you say about him, he will always be able to one-up you.

Jeffree Star has 17.5m subscribers on YouTube.

A Twitter user posted a screenshot of him searching for Star’s height, which returned the fact that he is 6’1”, saying that “bro was playing with the wrong balls,” a clear dig at his homosexuality.

Although the user clearly thought he had made a great joke, Star’s sassy response made it even better, by reversing the basketball joke and proving that he is a star true to his name.

Before thanking them for their concern, Jeffree said that “there are currently three NBA players in [my] DM‘s right now,” not needing to say any more to prove that he had come off looking better – and sparking up a Twitter storm.

Many people responded to the tweet saying that Jeffree is “capping,” not believing that he would have any NBA stars DM’ing him for any reason, while some fans even responded to it hoping it wasn’t their players, perhaps wanting them to focus on clinching an NBA playoff spot instead of DM’ing influencers.

Of course, it’s hard to tell whether or not Star is telling the truth. It would be very odd to lie about, but stranger things have happened and with his recent split from long-term boyfriend Nathan Schwandt, he might be looking for a new man in his life.

If there are any NBA players in his DMs, it would be super interesting to find out who – but it seems that information might be staying in the DMs for now.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
