Game of Thrones star Hafthor ‘The Mountain’ Bjornsson has unveiled a significant amount of weight loss as he continues to prepare for his bout against British giant Eddie ‘The Beast’ Hall in Las Vegas.

Hafthor locking horns with Eddie is a true clash of the titans. While both men are dedicating the best part of the next 18 months towards getting in the best shape of their life, the strongmen are both colossal in size.

At their biggest, Hafthor weighed just under 210 kg (463 lbs) while Eddie weighed 195 kg (410 lbs)… So there’s a clear reason why their bout is being dubbed as the ‘world’s heaviest boxing match.’

Both fighters have been brushing up on their technique while shaking some excess pounds.

Although one thing that has caught the attention of some is just how quickly Bjornsson has shifted some of the excess weight he was carrying in order for him to pull the deadlift world record at the beginning of May.

After continuous work on the pads and in the gym, the 31-year-old former World’s Strongest Man is looking sharper than ever, after dropping almost 20 kg (44 lbs) in the space of a few weeks.

Posting the picture to his Instagram, Bjornsson looked much leaner and meaner following a training session, as he proclaimed to weigh 188 kg… “When I started this journey I weighed 206kg.”

Visibly, Bjornsson looks much leaner in his face compared to images of him throughout his prep for his 501 kg deadlift, all of which has been documented on the star’s Instagram.

Of course, both camps will be keen to get in the best shape of their life before they enter the ring in Las Vegas next year.

It’s not all work and no play for Hafthor, though, as he has been keen to showcase his gaming talents on his Twitch channel.

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.
