Dog sabotages Twitch stream with hilarious Terms of Service violation

A Twitch streamer’s dog decided to pamper himself a bit on November 21 while its owner was out of the room – unbeknownst to him, though, the camera was still rolling, and he broke Twitch Terms of Service in the process.

Pets can be an important part of a streamer’s set-up, an endearing friend that can help viewers and fans feel closer to their favorite streamer’s everyday life.

But, as we’ve seen in the past, not every pet experience on stream is a positive one and, although this one is actually quite funny, we doubt the dog in question is too pleased with having his private moments aired live on stream for hundreds to see.

Livestock/TwitterJedi is usually a good boy, but sometimes struggles to control himself

Streamer ‘livestock’, who also commonly does IRL (in-real-life) and Teamfight Tactics streams, set up the camera for a casual dog stream, allowing viewers to watch man’s best friend in its natural habitat when he’s not being watched by his owner.

The dog, named Jedi, didn’t take long to pull his bed off the office chair it was sat on and pulled it into a more comfortable position before using it to share his true feelings.

Skipping the middle man – also known as a partner – Jedi starts humping the bed, unable to contain his lust any longer.

As we all know very well by now, sexual content is explicitly not allowed under Twitch’s Terms of Service and is punishable with a ban, but Twitch has never specified whether this rule extends to pets, too.

While this could potentially be an invasion of privacy from the streamer, it may also be an act of sabotage from the dog, who is sick of being used for views.

This act of defiance could cost the streamer his channel – or make Jedi a star in his own right.

Though some have conspired that the streamer may face some kind of repercussions for this, it seems to have fallen by the wayside and it seems unlikely that Twitch will punish livestock for it.

Since the incident, livestock has tweeted about Jedi’s desire to become a full-time streamer – though we’re not sure streaming in its traditional sense is exactly what Jedi is cut out for.

Pokimane responds to transphobia accusations after Discord DMs emerge

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
