Popular Twitch streamer HAchubby was left to give out repeated apologies after managed to call mall security on herself when approached by an in-store robot.
Despite not having the follower numbers of some of her fellow IRL (in-real-life) streamers, HAchubby has become a must-watch streamer for anyone who likes to watch public hijinx.
In recent weeks, the Korean broadcaster has been galavanting around Los Angeles with fellow streamer AngelsKimi, as well as linking up with the OfflineTV crew – leading to speculation that she might join. Yet, during her January 30 stream, HAchubby was streaming alongside Andy Milonakis when she was left to her own devices at the mall and found herself poking and prodding at a security robot.
While taking a break from jumping in and out of stores, the popular Korean streamer came around a strange-looking robot in the middle of an aisle that had messages about chatting with it printed across the side.
Despite being confused by it, asking her chat “what is that?” a few times, the streamer followed the instructions but instead of just getting a generic conversation, she quickly found herself on the phone with mall security.
Though, once she realized what was going on and she was actually talking to a real person, HAchubby quickly had to apologize. “Oh I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m so sorry – it’s a mistake,” she said. “Sorry, I’m sorry, I didn’t know.”
However, while many prank calls and hoaxes can lead to repercussions for wasting someone’s time, HAchu didn’t find herself needing to apologize any further, explaining to the chat that she really didn’t know it was the ‘police’.
The security talking via the robot quickly hung up and let the streamer go her own way, reuniting with Andy a few minutes later – still pretty embarrassed by what had just unfolded with the talking robot.
