Twitch streamer True_Schu went ballistic at a random stranger who decided to cuddle up next to him, before bizarrely biting the streamer on the shoulder.

When it comes to IRL [in-real life] streaming, streamers will usually be more concerned about their fans stream sniping them in public or having spotty connection speeds that diminish their broadcasts.

However, one streamer – Noble Esports’ True_Schu – was left concerned by the state of a bite mark on his shoulder when a stranger outrageously decided to take a nibble on him in front of thousands of viewers.

Twitter: True_SchuTrue_Schu can regularly be found streaming his IRL antics.

During his September 26 stream, True_Schu had been chatting to viewers while attending a bar at TwitchCon when an unknown man sat down next to him and started talking too. While the streamer didn’t seem too bothered at first, he completely flipped out when he was bizarrely bitten a few moments later.

“Ow, stop, no, I’m going to knock you out dude,” he screamed, pushing the man away from him and immediately sitting up straight. “Get away from me, I’ll knock you out right now,” he continued – prompting the stranger to tease leaving, before sitting back down.

The furious streamer continued on, stating: “Get the f*ck away from me right now. No, literally, get the f*ck away from me. Go over there – get the f*ck away from me dude.”

As the stranger didn’t want to abide by True_Schu’s request, he continued on by telling him to move on before they finally got up and left. “Get away – I don’t care dude, get the f*ck away from me dude. Get away, thank you.”

While annoyed at what had unfolded, the streamer was able to carry on with his stream – continuing to chat with fans while enjoying the pre-TwitchCon party.

It remains to be seen if he will address it any further in his later streams or on Twitter because, as of writing, he is yet to do so.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
