Popular Twitch streamer Ali ‘Gross Gore‘ Larsen hit out at fellow broadcasters Mizkif and Pokelawls by explaining why he had moved to unfollow and block the pair of them on Twitter. 

The British streamer who gained popularity through IRL (in-real-life) streams, can usually be found playing Runescape or World of Warcraft these days, keeping to himself rather than collaborating with others.

However, that doesn’t mean that other streamers can’t impact his stream. In fact, he did just that when he aired his feelings about Mizkif and Pokelawls after explaining that he’d had enough of seeing them on Twitter.

Gross Gore became pretty popular on Twitch thanks to his unusual early streams.

During his January 31 stream, the British streamer had been playing Runescape when one of his fans posted a clip of Mizkif reacting to a jokey Twitter video of his in the chat. Immediately, the streamer was confused by how Miz had been watching it, revealing that he had blocked him.

“I’m not joking, I’ve blocked him on Twitter, I blocked him on Twitter – how is he looking at my Twitter?” Gross Gore asked before responding to Mizkif’s reaction to his video. “This is why you’re blocked Mizkif.”

However, Gross Gore wasn’t finished there, after seeing Pokelawls get in on the act, he revealed that he had unfollowed him too because his fellow streamer had become “annoying as f**k.”

Yet, he circled back to Mizfik – taking aim at him again. “The guy, for like a year and a half, he had 10k subs and 10k viewers, right,” Gross Gore said. “Then, he talks about my Twitter videos and he says ‘oh GrossGore, I hate his Twitter videos, he does them all for attention.’”

The streamer continued: “Bro, you’ve got 10k subs and 10k viewers, and everything in your world is poggers. ‘Guys, I just took a s**t, poggers.’ Like, what’s up with that? Damn. And as for Pokelawls, I just found him really annoying so I unfollowed him and now he’s crying about it. Just stop. Who gives a f**k.”

Despite that tangent from his game and attempts at leveling up in Runescape, the streamer quickly returned to his initial conversation – leaving fans laughing about his previous rant. 

As for his fellow streamers, well, it appears as if they’ll be staying on the blocked and unfollowed list for the foreseeable future – even if they can find a way to get around that.


JakeNBake hit with DMCA strike for Kanye song in two-year-old Twitch clip

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Jake'n'Bake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Jake’n’Bake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to download and clear his video back-catalog — 13,00 past VODS worth — in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

“The biggest thing for me, and I think a lot of people are the same, because my stuff is IRL, there’s like three years of home videos. I love that they’re all in one place, and accessible,” he explained.

“It’s not like I just played games… for me, it’s like, in my heart, all these memories, and experiences. It’s disappointing because it just got a bit more real.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
