Twitch streamer AngelsKimi was left wanting to apologize to her long-term viewers, after a short moment with a fan at TwitchCon 2019 turned awkward.

Twitch streamers are no novices when it comes to awkward and interesting encounters with random people on the street, as well as with fans at major conventions, and IRL streamer AngelsKimi has added another one to the ever-growing list.

Throughout the convention, many popular streamers and personalities had the chance to interact with their fans face to face, and reinforce a positive bond within their own communities.

AngelsKimi, who has become popular on the streaming website for her IRL and ASMR broadcasts, was part-way through a signing session that she was livestreaming, when one particular fan went in for a hug.

Her fan reached out for the hug as he approached her at the front of the queue. Instead of reciprocating the gesture, the Twitch star stood an awkward distance back while still trying to engage the fan, leaving them both shuffling around to try and make it work.

Clearly one of the more uncomfortable interactions of TwitchCon in 2019, the clip exploded with over 100,000 views to date, encouraging AngelsKimi to explain her actions at a later date.

The streamer re-watched the clip during her October 2 stream, and burst into laughter before explaining that it “was completely my fault.”

“I know this was my fault okay. I did it on purpose for the clips though,” she joked between bouts of laughter as Twitch chat amusingly heaped the blame onto her.

Hopefully the unlucky fan can get another opportunity to right this injustice with Kimi at another TwitchCon or similar convention down the line.

Kimi’s hug wasn’t the only time a streamer had an akward moment at TwitchCon this year either. Another broadcasting star was rejected by a stranger on the streets of San Diego, and one particular streamer was saved from an awkward encounter.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
