100 Thieves’ Valkyrae has perfect response to being catcalled in Japan

Twitch stars Imane “Pokimane” Anys and Rachel “Valkyrae” Marie took time off from streaming for an impromptu trip to Japan – but their overseas vacation didn’t go completely as planned.

While it’s a reality that many women deal with, the broadcasters got caught in an uncomfortable situation during their night out on the town, which they captured during a live stream while walking the streets of Japan.

Both Valkyrae and Pokimane were broadcasting their adventures in the country when a stranger accosted them, pointedly catcalling Valkyrae as they walked by.

Valkyrae, InstagramStreaming star Valkyrae joined up with Pokimane for a night out in Japan – which ended in an uncomfortable altercation.

“Hey! What’s up, shawty?” the man repeatedly asked.

“She has a boyfriend, I’m sorry,” Pokimane interjected, attempting to defuse the altercation.

However, Valkyrae’s response to the unwanted attention was far more blunt: “You’re short,” she retorted, obviously unamused by the man’s catcalling.

Pokimane, InstagramPokimane and Valkyrae’s night out was interrupted by a catcalling bystander.

That wasn’t enough to dissuade the suitor, though, who followed the streamers as they walked away.

“What do you think about my fashion?” he asked – but his comments did nothing but make the women laugh.

“You are the shorty!” Valkyrae continued, wagging her finger in mock anger. “I told you, he said that when we were upstairs, too! …you are the short one, mister! We’re the same height!”

According to the streamer’s comments, this wasn’t the first time the stranger had accosted her in hopes of a romantic relationship that evening – but Valkyrae was very obviously not interested, going on to question the odd “transition” of the conversation to his wardrobe.

While she and Pokimane made a lighthearted joke of the affair, this wouldn’t be the first time catcalling has been caught during a live broadcast: in fact, one streamer got a verbal thrashing from an angry father on camera, after making lewd remarks toward his underage daughter.

The dad’s stern warning served as a valuable lesson to streamer “Prince Aladdin,” who was even berated by bystanders during the altercation.

Although Prince Aladdin’s case was less amusing, both instances serve as important reminders that catcalling is never okay – no matter the situation.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
