UPDATE 7:30pm PDT

After a wild few hours, it appears as though Ewok was not hacked at all, but that someone actually created the Twitter account that’s at the center of the drama. 

Her real Twitter account has been discovered and her family didn’t even know that any of this had taken place.

Twitch streamer EwokTTV has been embroiled in a growing controversy as it seems her Twitter account has been hacked following her stellar rise in popularity.

EwokTTV recently exploded onto the Twitch spotlight after getting numerous hosts/raids from popular streamers TimtheTatman, Mizkif, and more, but now a growing controversy is swirling around the 13-year-old broadcaster.

In a March 15 post, someone claiming to be EwokTTV’s father shared a private conversation between Ewokk and YouTube clan ‘Eh Bee Family’ that included a derogatory comment toward the young deaf streamer.

Twitter users were quick to point out the discrepancies in the alleged DM.

The Eh Bee Family immediately denied sending the message, providing proof that the image had been altered.

They posted screenshots of their own DMs to show that the incriminating message had indeed been completely fabricated. 

With the real DMs in hand, many users on Twitter began piece things together and point out areas that show that it had indeed been a poor Photoshop and not actual messages. 

Not only was there an exclamation point missing from the final message sent by the Eh Bee Family, it was noted that while the original message said “If you ever decide you want to pursue” as opposed to “If you ever decided and want to pursue.”

The situation became even more muddier when EwokTTV’s account started posting heinous messages and attributing a random third party as the alleged hacker.

It was at this point that it became clear that the entire thing looked to have been the result of someone else gaining access to her account.

EwokTTV / TwitterThe hacker made sure to plug their own Twitter account before bowing out.

Soon after the hacker posted the above tweets to Ewok’s account, they were quick to make light of the situation with a tweet that left little doubt as to their involvement. 

The account has since been set to private.

While some users on Twitter were calling foul and alleging that Ewok has actually fabricated the entire ordeal, popular esports consultant Slasher chimed in to make sense of the ordeal and quickly shut down this line of thought. 

After several minutes laters, it appears that the real EwokTTV regained control of her account.

She posted a tweet explaining the situation and apologizing to the Eh Bee Family for any hate they received as a result of the ordeal. 

It looks like EwokTTV will try to look past this incident, as she’s shown incredible potential to be a longtime streamer and Fortnite pro player in the months to come.

Strange occurrences continue to happen to David Dobrik; after being stalked by a “scary” viewer for days, the YouTuber has now become the unexpected owner of a kitten that was dropped off at his doorstep by an unknown person.

David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s biggest stars, boasting well over 19 million subscribers on the website, alone (not to mention his additional 14 million followers on Instagram).

Known for his high-energy vlogs and generous cash giveaways, it makes sense that his charitable nature has made him quite an impressive figure in the online world; but it seems his celebrity status is having some serious, real-world ramifications.

Earlier this week, Dobrik mentioned that he’d been stalked by a mentally disturbed viewer, who had sat outside his home for two days before keying his assistant’s blue Ford Bronco with odd symbols.

Luckily, Dobrik was able to get the fan the help she needed, after she claimed that voices inside her head had directed her to come to his home to get “answers” ; but that’s far from the strangest thing that has happened to the YouTuber in recent days.

In an Instagram story uploaded on October 8, Dobrik revealed video footage from his CCTV that showed a mysterious stranger placing a bag at his front gate before immediately turning away.

Luckily, it wasn’t a bomb or any other dangerous item. Instead, inside the bag was a Clickbait hoodie, a clear, plastic baggie full of makeup items, and a gray kitten.

“Someone dropped off this kitten at our front door,” the vlogger said while showing off the animal. “Please, take it back.”

While the rest of the Vlog Squad weren’t convinced that he hadn’t had someone over at the house previously, it seems that one of YouTube’s most popular personalities has become the unintended foster dad of a Russian Blue cat — which wouldn’t be a terrible development, for some cat lovers out there.

It’s not clear what Dobrik intends to do with the animal moving forward. You never know — the kitty might even become the newest member of the Vlog Squad!
