Popular World of Warcraft streamer Asmongold has lept to the defence of girlfriend Pink Sparkles after she faced criticism for her angry reaction to Mitch Jones being too loud while broadcasting late at night.

Pink Sparkles has moved into a content house with fellow streamers such as Mitch Jones and Kbubblez, but after Jones came home from a bar with a challenge set by Mizkif and a mystery donator, Sparkles became furious with her housemates, and Jones specifically.


The streamer has faced backlash for her outburst, prompting boyfriend Asmongold to defend her during his own broadcast.

Twitter: AsmongoldAsmongold has defended his partner Pink Sparkles following online criticism.


Pink Sparklez screams at Mitch Jones

According to viewers who claim to have watched the now-removed livestream, Jones received a challenge from fellow Twitch broadcaster Mizkif, who claimed he had a donator lined up who would give him $100,000 if he could persuade a girl to sleep with him.

The group had spent the night out at a number of bars, and began loudly discussing the challenge with housemate Kbubblez on the return to their home. The group had clearly been too loud for the sleeping Pink Sparkles though. who could be heard yelling down the stairs at the group, screaming “shut the f*ck up” repeatedly.

“Shut the f*ck up,” roared a clearly unhappy Pink Sparkles. “Shut the f*ck up or get out of the house. It’s 4am. Shut the f*ck up!”


Jones immediately apologised on camera, saying: “Yeah, I should probably be quiet. I apologize.”

Pink Sparkles responds to incident

The clip quickly circulated on /r/LivestreamFail, with some calling her behaviour “bitchy” and “trashy,” with many asking what she expected when she moved into a house full of streamers.

In a Twitlonger posted by Pink Sparkles, she addressed that her housemates “have gone out several times during the week to drink and have come home very late at night,” and that she doesn’t mind if they go out and party.


Stating that she had a hard time falling and remaining asleep, Sparkles wrote that this wasn’t the first time she had been woken up by loud roommates, and that the house had a meeting to address it, coming to a mutual agreement that there would be a curfew from 2am to 10am in which time people could not be loud.

“I admit that I was very frustrated at Mitch,” concluded Pink Sparkles. “Other people were just as much to blame for what happened, and I agree that the situation could have, and should have, been handled better by me.


Pink Sparkles used TwitLonger to share her side of the story.

Asmongold defends Pink Sparkles

While many continued to criticize Pink Sparkles’ behaviour, Asmongold has come out in defence of his partner, stating that he finds the ridicule she is facing ridiculous.

“It’s just good manners,” Asmongold told his viewers during his May 12 stream. “I’m amazed that this is even a controversy. It’s geniuinely disturbing to me that someone responding negatively to being woken up at [4am] by yelling is in the wrong.”

“Even when it was previously agreed upon that this wouldn’t happen. I worry about the livestreaming community because this feels insane. Is it reasonable to be bothered? Yeah, I think so.”

Mitch Jones, who was the aim of Pink Sparkles ire, has yet to comment on how he felt about the incident with Pink Sparkles, but tweeted that the broadcast was “one of [his] best streams in years.”


Elon Musk pleads Overwatch to buff Torbjorn’s turrets

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.


Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.


However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.


“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.


Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
