HAchubby responds to criticisms of “overreacting” during Twitch stream

Korean Twitch star ‘HAchubby’ has responded to critics who claim the streamer constantly “overreacts” on stream, saying she’s “been a little different” for the last few weeks and has been struggling with her English.

HAchubby was the poster girl for Korean Twitch streamers for months. She was loved for her quirky little streams at her job as a cashier, using streaming as a chance to learn English and interact with others.


However, her emotions have also paved the way for her fair share of critics. She’s been labeled as an actor by some, accused of overreacting for no apparent reason.

HAchubby is back after a break from streaming, and she took some time to respond to her critics.

While she already has a rather loud stream personality, HAchubby went to set the record straight on April 13.


After she received messages from followers about her supposed unusual behavior on stream, she opened up about her recent struggles, and how streaming has become an emotional outlet for her.

“Obviously I’ve been a little different for the past two weeks,” she said, via Google Translate. “It may have something to do with my psychological state. Two months ago, I was very frustrated with my English, and then I felt so much guilt, because I showed [my viewers] how sad and frustrated I was.

“I really regret that time, because I don’t want to convey gloomy feelings to people. Many people are already depressed and frustrated in their lives. I thought maybe I made their grief bigger. I was so sorry to the viewers.”


However, instead of reflecting on her English struggles, she tried to focus on positives. She wanted to become someone people could watch to just relax. She had been restrained her whole life, stating she had been working jobs that forced her to be a prim-and-proper role model.

Streaming gave her the chance to become herself again, and she seized the opportunity.


“I no longer wanted to give people the energy of depression and frustration,” she added. “I think that’s why I tried to laugh more on purpose. Yeah, I think it was a little unnatural, just as adults act like clowns to make a crying child laugh.

HAchubby told fans she “doesn’t want to pretend to be normal.”

“For so many years I have lived with restraint in most of my emotions. Ever since I started the stream, all of my emotions have started to explode. I could dance, laugh, and do strange things. I think I was too excited. I really felt like I found myself, so I flew off completely.


“Maybe I look strange to some people, like an actor. It’s your decision to think [that] about me. I seem to have revealed the emotions that I’ve held back in my life through the stream. [None of it] was made up. Maybe I was just a little crazy.”

Her fans came out with love and support for the streamer after the heart-felt message, before she kicked off another five-hour broadcast.

The critics will always come back, but HAchubby isn’t going to bother with them, and instead focus on just being herself.

Popular TikToker Larray has released a diss track dramatically calling out a huge number of different creators on TikTok and YouTube.

22-year old Lawrence Merrit, who is better known by his screen name Larray, is part of TikTok content creation collective the Hype House.


His new track “Cancelled” mentions so many different people it’s almost impossible to count. Several of the creators also feature in the music video, set at “Cancelled University.”

Fans are already seriously loving the shade. On Instagram, fans wrote “AS HE SHOULD” and “Stan Larray that’s the only influencer I don’t want to cancel ever.”

Who does Larray diss?

Bryce Hall is first up. Larray says he has “Smelly balls” and claims he’s only famous because he dated Addison Rae. He also adds that Bryce and Josh Richards bullied Chase Hudson.

Other members of the Sway House, namely Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck are attacked too with Larray calling Noah Beck a “thick neck b****, and alleging that Dixie D’Amelio left Griffin because Noah “got a bigger Peter.”

Of course, the Hype House gets a mention with Larray saying Thomas Petrou has bad breath and claiming the Hype left when Charli D’Amelio did. Charli doesn’t get off so easy however with Larray referencing the time a video of Charli vaping caused outrage on social media.


Tony Lopez in particular is called out after allegations that he has been sending Snapchats to underage fans. Of course, the sister squad gets a mention too, with Ethan and Grayson Dolan themselves making a cameo. Larray called them fake and claimed that their channel flopped after the sister squad disbanded. James Charles comes off lightly after the TikToker rapped that his “ass is getting thicker but that forehead getting bigger.”

Other YouTubers mentioned include Tana Mongeau who “gets canceled every 5-7 business days”, Tati Westbrook, who is “forty and complaining about some vitamins,” and David Dobrik after Larray threatens to floor his Tesla.

Larray also refers to the rumor that Shane Dawson sexually assaulted his cat, and references the backlash Nikita Dragun received after she was recently accused of blackfishing. Jeffree Star is also mentioned briefly in one line where Larray accuses him of saying the n-word.


While the TikToker is quick to call out those around him, he has received backlash himself in the last few days after he Tweeted during his livestream that he’s only “pretending to be gay for clout”.
