TikTok star experiences insane accident after getting ear pierced

16-year-old TikTok creator and Nickelodeon host Sissy Sheridan shocked her 2.9 million followers with a tearful video after getting her ear pierced at a local Claire’s outlet — which also involved the unfortunate placement of her face mask.

Many popular accessory chains, such as Clarie’s and Icing, offer on-site ear piercing services, and can be found in American malls alongside jewelry and other products.

Sheridan, who is not only a TikTok star but also host of Nickelodeon’s web series “DIY with Me,” opted to get one from her local Icing store on June 29 — but instead of a successful piercing, the content creator suffered an unfortunate accident.

Considering current world events, it comes as a welcome sight that Sheridan chose to wear her face mask to her appointment. However, it turns out the mask became an unwilling participant in the process, itself.

16-year-old TikTok star Sissy Sheridan was left in pain after an unfortunate accident at a local Icing outlet.

In an emotionally-charged TikTok video, Sheridan explained that her face mask had been pierced into her ear, causing considerable pain.

“I just got my third earring done,” she sobbed, “And the lady pierced my ear on my mask. I can’t get it off! It hurts so bad. I hate you Clarie’s! Look at it! The white one! It’s stuck on my ear and they look so ugly! I just want to take them out.”

In a follow-up TikTok video after the initial shock, the star creator also claimed a leftover piece from her mask was lodged inside of her ear even after it was cut out, likely due to the intense pressure of the piercing gun.

“I don’t know what to do right now because it’s really hurting,” she explained. “But it’s fine, because, I don’t know. I’m finna get a refund doe!”

The TikToker has since requested a refund from Icing for the cost of her $73 piercing, which the store has reportedly claimed it will only cash out when the earring itself is returned to the location.

That’s not all; Sheridan even shared the moment the painful incident occurred to her TikTok account, where she exclaimed, “Ooh, that one really hurt.”

Needless to say, her pain stands as a useful reminder to those looking to get a piercing on the cheap: it’s always better to go to an accredited piercing parlor, instead.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
