The brutally difficult world of Rust is filled with all kinds of perils, but popular Twitch streamer xQc quickly learned this the hard way when he encountered one of the game’s ferocious bears.  

Rust is the latest game to gain huge popularity over on Twitch and YouTube, with popular streamers like Pokimane, Myth, shroud, and more getting involved in the survival action. However, one streamer continues to make headlines for his hilarious antics and never-ending Offline TV Rust server drama. This streamer being none other than French Canadian Twitch streamer, xQc. 

When he’s not busy getting involved in the latest server raids, the popular content creator is invariably getting himself into mischief. This time xQc bit off more than he could chew when he came face to face with one of Rust’s more fearsome fauna. 

An unbearable problem

Rust’s bears are notoriously difficult to take down.

Rust servers are not only filled with hostile players, they are also home to some pretty dangerous wildlife. Everything from wild boar, chickens, deers, horses, and wolves can be found on each map. 

Of course, most of these animals can be used in the gathering and crafting of materials. In fact, you’ll invariably need to hunt them in order to survive. However, one of the game’s tougher creatures is the deadly bear. 

Bears are often found in wooded areas of the game’s biomes and are incredibly hostile towards nearby players. Their huge amounts of health, high mobility, and lethal bites can make short work of even the most skilled Rust players. 

Unfortunately, xQc found this out the hard way when he took a helicopter flight over a wooded area with fellow Twitch streamer dafran. Despite somehow missing the first few trees, xQc botched the landing as the helicopter propellers smashed into the wood. 

While xQc managed to jump out of the cockpit just before the helicopter exploded, dafran wasn’t so lucky. However, the action wasn’t over just yet as a bear came tearing its way through the woods, chasing an injured xQc up the mountain. 

The Twitch streamer desperately tried to make some distance between himself and the bear, but he only managed to fire off a few rifle rounds before being mauled to death. There’s certainly no questioning how lethal Rust’s local wildlife can be. 


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.
