Popular streamer Matthew ‘Dellor’ Vaughan shared an emotional moment with his mom during his first YouTube stream as he racked up an insane amount of viewers.
Dellor is a former Overwatch professional, has been known for his controversial outbursts and unleashing thunderous rage during his time streaming on Twitch. He was once struck with a suspension for telling a female player to go cook a sandwich, before breaking down upon his return after admitting that he could no longer be a partner and therefore make money through subscriptions.
The streamer remained on the platform until October 1, when he was banned for ‘self-harm’ after picking up his keyboard and smashing himself in the face with it. Following his suspension, fans became concerned when he disappeared from social media, explaining that he had checked himself into hospital in the aftermath of the incident.
On October 6, the former Overwatch player made his unannounced debut on YouTube’s livestreaming service, and racked up over 15,000 viewers – making him one of the most popular creators on the platform during his broadcast.
The success led to an emotional moment where he called up his mom and shared the good news, with both left overwhelmed by the support he was shown. “I have over 15,000 viewers right now, I think we’re going to be ok,” the streamer said, holding back tears.
Despite his emotional return, Dellor couldn’t keep the signature screaming and shouting that he is known for bottled up, as he ranted and raved about his incredible viewing figures.
“15 thousand people in here? I don’t know, that might not be enough!” the streamer screamed. “I might need to go to f**king Facebook or something, holy s**t dude.”
Whether or not Dellor will be able to keep his incredible early viewing figures going remains up in the air, especially as he likely got a first stream bump from people who may not have tuned in before.
