Pokimane and LilyPichu impress OfflineTV with shocking archery abilities

The OfflineTV crew took archery lessons on the coast of Los Angeles, and Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and Lily ‘LilyPichu‘ Ki’s natural bow-shooting abilities impressed both their housemates and their instructor.

The OfflineTV team are never shy about trying something new. As long as they all do it together, they film it, and proceed to laugh at each other at the first chance they get.

The six-person roster of streamers/YouTubers took on a new challenge together in their February 27 upload, as the whole squad traveled to South Bay Archery Lessons in Redondo Beach.

The collective of Pokimane, LilyPichu, Michael Reeves, Jeremy ‘Disguised Toast’ Wang, Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan, and William ‘Scarra’ Li were introduced to their fascinating archery instructor by the name of Paul Farbman.

After a lengthy introduction and safety discussion, Farbman brought out the bows, and LilyPichu immediately put the rest of the team on notice with some scarily accurate first shots.

Toast jokingly remarked that the “pressure’s on” when Lily ended up firing first, as Fedmyster said “it would set the tone for the whole video” – but she handled the pressure with ease and set a high bar with her first strike hitting the target area dead center.

LilyPichu ‘set the tone’ early with some impressive archery skills.

After some practice by the whole team, their teacher brought out more precise targets, and Lily again impressed with two hits on the yellow bullseye area. Farbman jokingly asked her when she was going to tell the rest of OfflineTV that she had been taking private lessons.

However, Pokimane took over the competition in the later rounds, including a 4/4 performance where she hit the red section (the section just outside the bullseye) with each arrow, catapulting her into the lead. She finished off her friends in the final round, being the first to hit the balloon in the bullseye and cementing her first-place finish.

Fedmyster unfortunately finished in last, after requiring multiple tries to pop the balloon in the final round – meaning he would be paying for the group’s dinner that evening.

The archery begins officially at 5:02 for mobile readers.

While some did better than others, you couldn’t tell from their instructor’s feedback, who consistently provided positive reinforcement to the gang of internet stars and transformed them into efficient medieval killing machines that could tangle with the likes of Legolas or Hawkeye (If they were balloons, that is).

Between archery, skydiving, and even a laser tag game designed by Michael Reeves himself, the OfflineTV  crew isn’t scared of a little danger if it means creating good content, and fans ought to be curious as to what the group is going to do next.

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.
