Former Overwatch pro turned Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has been trying his hand at conquering the beast that is Jump King and has been having a really hard time with it.

Call it living vicariously, or just plain taking pleasure in others’ pain, but Twitch viewers love to watch streamers play difficult games and fail, mostly because of their sometimes hilarious reactions. Games like Jump King have made their name off of such reactions, and thanks to a new update, players and streamers like xQc have been checking out what’s new.

xQc, TwitchxQc did his best to hold back his frustration while playing Jump King.

Things are still pretty rough for players, so that hasn’t changed and a recent fail by xQc left viewers in tears after they watched him lose all of his hard-earned progress.

Normally, viewers would be able to count on xQc for an expletive-filled tirade complete with screaming and yelling, but this time, he watched his character fall back to the beginning silently.

Despite not saying anything, his various facial expressions did all the talking as he watched he character tumble all the way down. At the end of the clip, he was finally able to let a sound out to let his viewers he realized what was happening.

The Twitch star isn’t really known for his patience, but that’s just what you need to have if you ever want to be successful in a game like this. It requires very precise movements and we just saw what happens if you have even just one mishap.

While this might seem like a huge drop, that’s just par for the course in Jump King as the whole game is built around frustrating fails like this. Eventually, you either persevere or give up, and most players will definitely fall into the latter category.

On the bright side, these consistent fails make great content for viewers to watch and laugh around with.

Try not to lose your mind while playing Jump King.

Nobody likes watching their favorite streamers grow frustrated with a game they’re playing, but for a game like this, it’s tough to not be entertained.

Many players don’t like the feeling of failure, and that definitely goes for former esports pros, so it’s possible we won’t see xQc fully drop this game until he is able to conquer it.

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.
