Twitch star “Asmongold” is normally known for his popular World of Warcraft streams – but the broadcaster interrupted his usual programming to weigh in on massive drama surrounding two major faces on the platform.

OfflineTV member and Twitch streamer Lily “LilyPichu” Ki shocked fans with a Twitlonger post on November 10, where she admitted that she and boyfriend Albert “SleightlyMusical” Chang had parted ways.

Claiming that she “felt forced to make a statement,” Pichu apologized for subtweets published by her friends, claiming that she was “heartbroken” over her split with Chang and still loved him “very much.”

Following the release of Pichu’s statement, fans flocked online, speculating that Chang had cheated on Pichu (although none of these theories have been proven true).

With the scandal garnering ample buzz in the online world, it makes sense that one of Twitch’s top broadcasters would speak out on the matter: but Asmongold did more than offer a mere two cents on the subject.

“What kind of loser fucking idiot fucking gives a f*** about this?” the streamer laughed. “What kind of pathetic f***ing loser spends any moment of any second of their life worrying about if one person cheated on somebody else? Get a f***ing life.”

Lilypichu became part of a massive online scandal after friends Pokimane and Fedmyster subtweeted OfflineTV member Sleightlymusical.

That’s not all – Asmongold went on to give over-enthusiastic fans some brutal “advice,” reminding them that they likely don’t know any of the involved streamers personally and to focus their attention to their own relationships.

While Lily has yet to speak further on the matter, fellow streamers Imane “Pokimane” Anys and Federico “Fedmyster” Gaytan have apologized for Tweeting about the drama, with Fedmyster claiming that going to social media “wasn’t the right move.”

For now, fans and critics alike are left to speculate as Pichu’s deeply personal matters get strung out online.

Minecraft and YouTube star Dream is giving away thousands of dollars to his subscribers for just wearing his skin in their different servers. 

Many content creators have dipped their toe in with Minecraft over the years, with some managing to have massive success as a result of it. 

In recent months, the DreamSMP crew – a scripted Minecraft server for YouTubers and streamers – have been dominating with their influx of views, followers, and new subscribers. 

Even though he’s been under fire for apparently cheating in speedruns, Dream – who has over 16 million subscribers on YouTube – is giving back to his fans, and all they have to do is wear his iconic skin in Minecraft.

Dream has over 16 million subscribers on YouTube, surging in popularity over the past year.

That’s right, there are no major hurdles to deal with, you just have to be subscribed to Dream on YouTube and be wearing his Minecraft skin while playing on a server.

The YouTuber won’t be found on a special sever, mind. He tweeted that he’ll mostly be found on the Hypixel server. That’s a massive public server that is open to everyone – you just need the server code which is: mc.hypixel.net.

Now, the tricky part might be running into him, however, when you get onto Hypixel given that there will probably be so many people wearing his skin, it might be difficult to tell everyone apart. 

Dream has already given away $1,000 to one lucky player, revealing that he ran into them as a random partner in one of the server’s mini-games. 

So, keep an eye out for his actual in-game name – which is just Dream – when taking part in the mini-games and don’t get fooled by an imposter. 

Other YouTubers have used Minecraft to conduct similar giveaways, seeing as there is so much you can do inside the multiplayer sandbox game. 

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson gave one fan a house for winning a building competition, and while Dream probably won’t go that far, he might giveaway even more in the future. You just never know.
