Infamous internet reporter Perez Hilton has responded to criticism over his comments on TikTok star Charli D’Amelio’s video where she’s dancing in a bikini, claiming he “loves” the beef.

While on vacation in the Bahamas in early March, D’Amelio uploaded a dancing TikTok video with Avani Gregg while in a bikini on a sunny beach – both of which are part of the ‘Hype House,’ a content house made just for the app’s top personalities.

Celebrity journalist Perez Hilton commented on the clip, taking issue with her age and the choice of song since it contained references to an inappropriate act. “Anyone else think it’s inappropriate for a 15-year-old to dance to this?” he said, causing her to hit back with “i’m sorry i’m just trying to have fun.” He later responded again and said “I wish I looked that good in a bikini at 15,” fueling the fire further.

Continuing the back and forth, the 41-year-old then moved onto making TikTok videos of his own about the situation, causing Hype House Instagram account ‘hypehouseshaderoom’ to comment.

“Wouldn’t be shocked if he had something,” one post read, alongside a screenshot of one of the reporter’s videos, seemingly with no idea of who he is.

Another image showed the comments section of one of Perez’s uploads where a fan asked the journalist “How old are u again?” which prompted him to reply with “Almost 50.”

On March 5, the internet personality took to YouTube to livestream his thoughts on the beef with Hype House and Charli D’Amelio, and to explain his side of things. “Literally as I am broadcasting live, my TikTok is blowing up and I love it! I have a message for the youth…” he began, as he lifted up his shirt to the camera to reveal the text ‘I give 0 f**ks’ displayed across it.

 “These people still are letting me have it over me asking a question on the biggest TikTokker of the moment’s account when she did a video earlier this week gyrating, moving in an adult way to a song about taking big D!” he continued. “All I asked was, is it appropriate of her to be doing this? My main issue was with her parents, not her!”

“For days now, they’re still letting me have it, and I am in heaven! I love it! Thank you children! My [account] is getting so many views, I’m getting so many new followers, I love it!” he finished.

Despite Perez’s comments, Charli has continued to upload many videos while on vacation in the Bahamas, showing that she’s clearly not phased by the situation at all.

She is the biggest personality on the viral video application at only 15 years old, boasting over 33.4 million followers at the time of writing.

Call of Duty

Dr Disrespect explains how Black Ops Cold War could be “so much more fun”

Dr Disrespect has chimed in on the much-maligned SBMM system used in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and other titles, and although he doesn’t blame Treyarch, the Doc is less than impressed with the system and wants it removed.

Dr Disrespect is all about violence, speed, and momentum. However, he hasn’t been able to spread his wings in Black Ops Cold War and fly like the eagle he was born to be, and he blames it all on SBMM.

SBMM, which stands for skill-based matchmaking, is a system used in many popular games to try and balance out lobbies.

Some players and developers think it’s a good thing, but many others believe it tends to ‘punish’ higher-skilled players like Dr Disrespect. It throws them into lobbies with other elite players, which results in ‘sweaty’ games where everyone is good and trying really hard to win.

The game becomes more serious and less casual, and it demands more effort, which is less than ideal for streamers like the Doc, who want to entertain.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is one of many games that uses SBMM.

Dr Disrespect has never been one to hold his tongue and mince his words on matters important to him. In his latest stream, he had a frustrating time playing Black Ops Cold War due to SBMM and shared his thoughts.

Man, that SBMM, what a… what a…” he said, struggling to find the words to summarize his rage. “SBMM results to exact same fight every single time.” It’s a sentiment shared by players from many different games and skill brackets.

“It has nothing to do with… game design,” he added.

“Treyarch knocks it out the park… I just think it has something to do with a lot of the technical stuff… I would take that tech out.”

Dr Disrespect
Dr Disrespect isn’t one to hold back on his opinions, especially when it comes to games.

Dr Disrespect knows that it isn’t Treyarchs fault. Instead, he refers to a “third-party” who works with them and “manages all the data and everything.” He says, “they’re able to make all these tweaks, and all that stuff,” and the fact that SBMM is implemented at all is “such a bummer.”

“I want some sheep in my lobbies,” he said. “I want a couple triple peekers. The game could like just be so much more fun. I don’t understand why they have it.”

Dr Disrespect isn’t the first person to express his concerns about SBMM, and he won’t be the last. However, the Doc is a pillar in the gaming community. He has also been involved in some behind-the-scenes level design, so his opinion has some weight.

Either way, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is still loads of fun. SBMM might even help you become a better player if you’re willing to embrace it.
