One unfortunate Twitch streamer ‘DurranSD’ was quickly shut down during his latest Terraria speedrun attempt in quite hilarious fashion.

Speedrunning through games has become quite popular among hardcore players who look to complete entire titles or levels in the fastest times possible.

In many cases, those players will have to perform flawlessly to break the fastest times and often look for shortcuts or glitches that can help them shave off a second or two in order to claim the bragging rights.

TerrariaSpeedrunners on Terraria often look for new ways to break the existing records.

Twitch streamer DurranSD, who frequently attempts to break records on Terraria’s levels, was left stunned after one of his latest attempts at beating a course was cut short in the most unusual way.

While attempting speedruns through some of the sandbox game’s custom worlds, one of his attempts was over before it even began as he spawned into the world with a message letting him know he died.

Not even a second had gone by on his timer, leaving the streamer and many of his viewers scratching their heads as to what happened, simply yelling, “What?!” in disbelief before he eventually respawned.

Despite his unfortunate attempt, DurranSD managed to see the funny side in it, later laughing about his failed attempt while trying to understand what caused his death in-game.

“Why is this game such a mess, well that’s a first,” he expressed before laughing to himself. “How did I die, what happened?”

After watching the clip back, many suggested that his death could have been caused by him spawning inside a dirt block, however, it is still unclear what caused the bizarre death.

YouTube star PewDiePie has also been playing Terraria recently and has even started a new series on his YouTube channel for it, although it will be unlikely he will be attempting any speedruns after admitting he had never played the game previously.


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.
