Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar pulled off one of the most stealthy heists seen on Sea of Thieves as he approached a team’s ship, boarded, hid almost in plain sight and escaped with all of their loot on a rowing boat – bobbling into the distance. 

Summit, one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, decided to swim his way over to a Galleon he spotted near The Crooked Masts, after he had a hunch that the team might have something of great value on board. 

He said: “If you go too close, everyone’s on guard. These guys are definitely teaming though, which is perfect because that smells like Athena [Chest] to me.”

RareSummit has been a fan of Sea of Thieves since it was released in March.

After boarding the ship without being caught, he sat tight for quite some time. Hidden behind a chair in the map room, Summit counted down the amount of stops left on the crew’s voyage as they got moving, taking quick peaks at what they had to offer. 

He was right, the Athena Chest was right there in front of him. 

When the team eventually stopped off, the popular streamer snapped into action and swiftly took their loot piece-by-piece towards the back of their boat. 

The team fired themselves closer to a nearby island using cannons, completely oblivious to what was happening right under their noses. 

After stocking up a rowing boat with a shed-load of skulls and his long sought after Athena chest, Summit slipped away totally unnoticed to complete his mission. 

We can only imagine the team’s reaction when they returned to their Galleon, only to find an empty bed where the loot they collected was once placed.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
