The former Overwatch pro turned Twitch megastar Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s Overwatch Season 21 placement matches took a downward turn when the experienced Tank player was surprised by an unfortunate glitch on the Hollywood map.

Overwatch giveth, and Overwatch taketh away, and few people experience this rule more frequently than xQc.

While no longer gracing the stage of the Overwatch League, the French-Canadian streaming star still queues up for placements each new season.

A veteran of OWL, xQc’s streaming career has grown immensely.

Six hours into his on-stream grind, xQc was off to a great start in his Tank placement matches, sitting at 7-2 heading into his tenth match.

Tasked with stopping the payload on Hollywood, his Reinhardt squared off against the same hero on the enemy team, but an unfortunate glitch completely derailed the former pro’s momentum.

He attempted a charge, but his character model collided with the wooden post of the porch that he was standing on, causing no damage to the enemy and resetting the ability’s cooldown.

xQc was flummoxed by this, but if you slow down the clip and pause at the point of impact, he has every right to be. When Reinhardt is stopped, you can clearly see that he’s shouldn’t be hitting the post. In fact, he’s not even that close.

Frustrated, xQc’s fight with the enemy Reinhardt goes about poorly as it possibly could. His Earthshatter ultimate gets blocked by his enemy’s shield, and their Fire Strike pierces right through his shield, dropping him.

The streamer didn’t take too kindly to his chat mocking him after the play. “Why are you making fun of me?” he asked. “It literally bugged, the game literally f**king bugged. I’m not kidding.”

After the round was complete, xQc went back and looked at the clip to prove to his chat that it was a bug, and his stunned expression tells the whole story.

But despite the bug-induced frustration, he would still won the match — claiming his eighth of the day in the final seconds of sudden death. He finished the day 10-2 in matches playing Tank… A productive day, all things considered.

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.
