Twitch superstar Nick ‘NICKMERCS‘ Kolcheff has roasted 100 Thieves content creator Jack ‘CouRageJD‘ Dunlop for his movie preferences, after the YouTube personality revealed his controversial opinions on Star Wars, Transformers, and Christopher Nolan’s films.

The heated discussion around which movies are better first started when CouRage announced that he was “no longer friends” with fellow internet sensations Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, and Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar.


“It has come to my attention that Nadeshot, TimTheTatman, and Ninja think Interstellar is better than Inception. I regret to inform you all that as of today I’m no longer friends with any of them. It’s a sad time but it’s for the better,” Dunlop said in his comedic tweet.

Ninja quickly shot back after being called out on social media, dubbing CouRage’s opinion invalid due to his long-standing love of Michael Bay’s robot franchise Transformers.


“Jack you literally think Transformers is a better series than Star Wars, your opinion doesn’t count,” the Mixer superstar said in a reply video. TimTheTatman echoed the sentiment minutes later: “Yeah, yeah, okay! And Transformers is better than Star Wars, right Jack?”

Perhaps the heaviest roast CouRage received for his opinions on Nolan’s 2010 and 2014 releases came from NICKMERCS, who weighed in on the debate during his September 24 broadcast.

“He was trying to make the case that Transformer is a better movie series than Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, or The Hobbit. I remember when he tweeted that I didn’t say anything, but I thought ‘what a fucking idiot’,” the streamer said.


“I saw him tweet again the other day saying Inception is better than Interstellar, and I was like ‘yo, I knew he was a fucking idiot.’ How the fuck is Inception a better movie than Interstellar? Interstellar is like a top fiver right there man. I like Inception but come on now, dude’s a troll.”

Perhaps the funniest take during the whole movie-opinion saga came from Nadeshot, who noticed that everyone was replying to CouRage’s hot take with videos on Twitter, and decided to jump in on the roasting action as well.

“Everyone was making a video, so I wanted to make one too… Jack, you’re an idiot, you know Star Wars is better. Wow, Tim, Ninja, great guys, great taste in film,” the 100T founder said.


A win for the under-fire Transformers lover, however, comes from review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, where reviewers and fans have their say on popular movies.

On that website, Inception clocks in at a hefty 87% critical rating, while Interstellar trails behind at 72%. Nolan’s 2010 flick even wins the audience battle, with 91% compared to Insterllar’s 85%.

‎Legendary PicturesCouRage believes Inception is a better film than Interstellar, and Rotten Tomatoes seems to agree.

Where CouRage may have got it wrong, however, is his love for Michael Bay’s multi-million dollar robot franchise and its alleged superiority over George Lucas’ space epic.

When comparing both series’ first theatrical releases, Transformers 2007’s low 58% from reviewers and critics falls well behind Star Wars: A New Hope’s 93%, perhaps ending the argument about which science-fiction world has a better film franchise.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.


Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.


In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
