Fortnite star Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore was left stunned by a disgusting advert on Twitch as he tried to watch another streamer’s broadcast. 

When it comes to making money on Twitch, streamers can do so through building a fan base, turning followers into subscribers, and even receiving donations throughout the stream for their hard work – or to even prompt a bit of chat spam.

There are also more traditional ways too, with brand deals, sponsorships, and having advertisements run on a stream – provided viewers don’t have adblock software enabled. However, streamers don’t get to choose the adverts that run, which has prompted outrage in the past as broadcasters have had to promote rival channels. 

Yet, there may be a new problem about to rear its head, with some strange trailers for TV shows popping up.

CloakzyCloak [L] has taken his Fortnite success and carved out a massive fanbase on Twitch.

During his September 21 stream, Cloak had been dropping in on Mason ‘Symfuhny‘ Lanier’s Fortnite trios stream when he was greeted with an advertisement. 

Of course, Lepore clicked play in a bid to support his fellow content creator but was left bemused as a character in the trailer picked up a pigeon and bizarrely bit its head clean off – showing plenty of blood. 

“What the heck? Why is that an ad on Twitch?” Cloak asked, stunned by what he had just witnessed.

As his chat filled with some laughter and even more disgust, the Fortnite star tried to find some answers but remained stunned by what had just unfolded.

“There’s an ad on Twitch of biting a bird’s head off?” he asked, again looking at his viewers for any possible answers. After a few brief moments of silence, Cloak added: “What the fuck!”

The advert in question isn’t for a new Amazon Prime show, but instead, a new release from FXX, so it could very well be taken out of the ad pool if creators aren’t happy with what they’re promoting.

If that happens, however, still remains unknown, but it’s clear that Cloak absolutely isn’t a fan of what he saw.

Popular stand-up comedian Joe Rogan has finally revealed changes to the lighting of his new podcast studio after fans decided they hated it, following his move to Texas.

After moving his entire podcast studio near his new Texas home in early September, Joe Rogan’s followers were quick to criticize him over the “tacky” updates made to the background of his setup.

While most of his fans are used to seeing him in front of the classic red-brick wall with an American flag during his long-form conversations, his latest move saw the addition of some bizarre red lighting patterns instead.

JRE fans criticized Rogan’s studio for its “tacky” red lights in previous episodes.

The UFC commentator’s first few episodes in the new studio were subject to a lot of criticism and many fans immediately called for adjustments to be made to the new camera angles and lighting that were being used.

However, after initially addressing the hate and revealing that they had put the room together on short notice, it seems as if he has taken the feedback on board in his recent episodes, toning down the harsh red lighting that was present in the background of the show. The podcast host has now replaced the bright red light with a blue hue instead.

Since the release of his podcast with fellow comedian Colin Quinn on October 8, fans have noticed a massive improvement in the lighting and have been quite positive about the production changes that Rogan and JRE producer Jamie Vernon have made.

“Lighting is so much better, doesn’t look like you’re in front of a KFC sign” one viewer commented, while other JRE fans echoed similar compliments after the latest changes.

The majority of his viewers claimed that the quality of the episode was “significantly better” but that it could still do with some minor adjustments to bring it up to the usual standard of the popular podcast.

As Rogan has previously explained that his current studio was put together on short notice, it is quite possible that he has even more changes in store over the next few months but we’ll just have to wait and see if any further adjustments are made.
