Twitch streamer AdmiralBahroo was only minutes into his April 30 broadcast when he stopped everything he was doing to call out a viewer for allegedly stealing his emote.

Bahroo is one of the larger Twitch names out there, boasting over 750,000 followers on the platform. Despite his popularity, his eyes managed to catch a user spamming the stolen emote in his chat and decided to act.

After muting his music, much to the confusion to the thousands in attendance, the streamer told his chat to “hold up” while he took a screenshot.

AdmiralBahroo said this emote was stolen.

“I shouldn’t be giving you this kind of attention. I’m acknowledging that before I do this,” the Twitch star began. “But personally, I haven’t seen somebody this stupid before.”

According to Bahroo, the user took one of his emotes, made a ripoff of it and started spamming it.

“I’m not entirely sure what you thought was going to happen. I don’t know if you thought ‘maybe if I do this they’ll come sub to me,’ but because you were that b*llsy and that stupid, I’ll send the DMCA live!” the streamer slammed.

On his screen, AdmiralBahroo pulled up a screengrab of his chat featuring the stolen emote posted by user DannyPrime. While the streamer never explicitly said what emote it was, it appeared to be a ripoff of his “rooBlank” emote.

“We’ll fill it out right now!” he continued and proceeded to devote the next several minutes of the stream to writing up a Digital Millennium Copyright Act message to take the stolen emote down.

“I’ve got the whole copy paste ready, dude!” Bahroo warned. “If you don’t think I have this s**t memorized on how to do it, I’ll do it right now.”

After some time passed and the streamer finishing filling out the form, he joked that it was a nice “good start to the stream.”

It’s unclear whether the DMCA worked or if the user decided to delete the account himself, but their account is no longer active on Twitch.

It just goes to show that you shouldn’t mess around with streamers who will take time out of their own broadcasts to shut down thieves.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
