What initially seemed like a good idea for an iPhone case ended up having a fatal flaw pointed out in a tweet that went viral on January 22.

The iPhone ecosystem can end up being very expensive to buy into, but it’s necessary if you want to get your hands on the latest and greatest technology Apple have to offer.

If you want a way to listen to music on your iPhone for example, you might need to invest in a pair of AirPods that can run you over $100 for even the cheapest pair. If you do buy a set, then you’ll certainly not want to lose them as it’ll hurt a whole lot more than just losing a regular pair of earbuds.

AirPods are essential for an iPhone owner.

One way to do this is by buying a special case that will not only keep your phone protected, but will also keep your AirPods safe. This means that wherever your phone is, your AirPods will be in the same spot, making it a very convenient option.

In a situation of playing devil’s advocate, Twitter user Kinglamar__ points out this could end up being very dangerous.

“Imagine a thief stealing your iPhone and getting AirPods free,” he said in a now-viral tweet.

At the time of this writing, the tweet has over 500,000 likes, suggesting that a lot of people would agree with this sentiment. While it’s likely not what the phone case designer had in mind, it’s going to be hard to picture anything other than the worst-case scenario after this.

It’s hard to argue against the practicality the case has, as losing your headphones is far more likely than losing your entire phone. However, if you’re not worried about having your phone stolen, then you can give the phone case a look for yourself.

iPhones tend to be fragile, so it’s important to get a good case.

The case itself is inexpensive when compared to the iPhone itself or even a set of AirPods, so it could very well be worth the risk. Phone thefts are on the decline due to more advanced security features, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t worry about them at all anymore.

If you do decide to purchase it, just make sure you keep a close watch over your phone because would-be thieves could be keeping an eye on it after seeing this tweet.

YouTuber and TikTok star Bryce Hall came under fire after uploading a video that showed himself attempting to break up a fight between the Sway House boys and a bystander — and now, he’s revealed his side of the story.

The video, originally taken on September 23, sparked outrage among Hall’s fanbase after being posted on October 4, with many critics calling out the influencer for what appeared to be bad behavior.

However, Sway House member Nick Bean clarified what took place in an Instagram Live stream, stating that the altercation had been his fault and that things ultimately ended on a happy note, while also claiming the incident was “misrepresented” by media outlets.

This didn’t stop some commenters from still finding fault with the situation — especially since a few choice homophobic slurs had been thrown out during the video.

Bryce Hall later told his side of the story during an episode of his “Capital University” podcast on October 7, seeming to confirm Bean’s version of events: A drunk Bean had tossed a traffic cone onto a nearby car, causing the owner to come out of a restaurant to assess the situation.

Bryce claimed that the car’s owner punched Bean in the face twice, leading to the all-out brawl seen in the video. Just like Bean’s statement, he claimed that the group made up in the end; but that wasn’t all he revealed.

The TikToker also explained why he’d even uploaded the video in the first place, stating that he wanted to get ahead of the media outlets to prevent any misinterpreting of the situation.

“We didn’t actually know that there was a video,” Hall admitted, referring to the now-viral clip originally taken from a paparazzi outlet. “I actually tweeted out the video, because I knew it was going to come out. I didn’t want the press articles to switch up the story at all. So I tweeted it out.”

At long last, Hall has finally cleared up the events leading up to the viral video; and while some fans are understanding, it doesn’t look like internet critics are willing to let this one go, regardless of his and Bean’s explanation.
