TikTokker Loren Gray is one of the platform’s biggest stars, and was once the app’s most-followed creator before the rise of Charli D’Amelio — and now, she could be making even bigger moves.

The TikTok scene boasts a slew of content houses, which bring together some of the platform’s biggest stars under a single roof to level up their social media game and collaborate with one another on various projects.

One of the most popular of these content houses is the Hype House, which was once home to such names as sisters Charli and Dixie D’Amelio and even Addison Rae, although many top creators have since made an exit from the group in wake of legal allegations against its co-founders.

Loren Gray was once TikTok’s most-followed creator, who was later surpassed by Charli D’Amelio.

However, Hype House continues to breed speculation from fans in wake of these exits, with many viewers guessing at who will replace these huge names — and Loren Gray is one of them.

Gray, who once held the title of TikTok’s queen with over 45 million followers on the platform, is notable for her popular dancing and lip syncing videos as well as her own original music, which she uploads to YouTube — home to her 3.7 million subscribers.

Now, fans are theorizing that she could be one of Hype House’s potential members, after the star posted a few collaborative TikTok videos and a group photo with the HH squad, including a separate joint video with member Tayler Holder.

Considering that University of Portland soccer player Noah Beck was recently seen in a similar scenario with members from the Sway House, fans are on the edges of their seats to see whether or not Gray’s social media posts are hint at a future move.

For now, Gray has been decidedly silent on the subject, as have other members of the house, although not everyone is pleased with the implication that TikTok’s previous queen could be joining the group.

Despite their sentiments, viewers can only watch and wait for further moves from the star, who has yet to join such a collaborative group despite her popularity across social media.

“PlayStation 5 restock” trended on Twitter after stores sold out of the Sony console in literally seconds on November 19. Players took to social media to voice their frustrations.

Ever since its launch, Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been this holiday’s hottest item. Stores across the world can’t keep the next-gen console in stock, and consumers are desperate to get their hands on one.

On November 19, stores like Walmart announced a restock of the PS5. Only, they sold out in seconds. Angry players left empty handed were stunned and frustrated by the disastrous availability – and vented their feelings online, as you do.

Gamers rage out after PS5 restock disaster

A similar story played out for many attempting to buy Sony’s next-gen console. Consumers were able to add the coveted hardware to their basket, only to be greeted by Walmart’s “oh deer” crash screen, made even more frustrating by displaying a photo of a smiling dog with reindeer antlers on.

Other users made it as far as entering their payment and shipping information, but by the time they clicked and confirmed their order, they were told the new PlayStation had already sold out.

On Twitter, #PS5Restock and #OhDeer began trending after the gaming community let out their rage using hilarious memes to describe the situation. Here are some of the best reactions.

PlayStation fans react

Many frustrated PlayStation fans used iconic clips from pop culture, such as Spongebob Squarepants or anime to express their anger with the restock lasting only seconds before selling out.

Other players raged out over Walmart’s now-infamous “Oh Deer” site crash screen which plagued those trying to purchase the console. The smiling dog in the Christmas outfit quickly became meme fodder, and even trended worldwide.

At the time of writing, Walmart has not made any public comment about the situation. It is also unclear when there will be another restock for the PS5. With Christmas just around the corner, the scarcity of the new console will only further fuel the demand for the hot item.

This isn’t the only time the PlayStation 5 has trended on social media over lack of stock. An hour after Sony announced pre-orders would go up 24 hours later, stores quickly broke the street date and put the next-gen hardware up for sale a day earlier than they were supposed to  – which also left many gamers frustrated.
