Juan ‘HungryBox’ DeBiedma embraced the meme after he had a crab thrown at him by digging in and eating one during his Twitch stream, all while listening to Crab Rave.

Following Pound 2019, a Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament, HungryBox was crowned the victor but it looks like fans didn’t recognize him as their victor.

HungryBox was pelted by a dead crab of all things, which caught him completely off guard and let to a heated altercation with the crowd as he tried to figure out who threw it.

While he had every right to be mad, especially considering he was celebrating a victory at a tournament, and he was rewarded by having a crustacean launched at him.

He might have been heated as it was all happening but he has now simmered down and decided to make a joke of the situation.

HungryBox decided to bust out a crab on stream and eat it in front of the camera, to prove to everyone that he won’t let this crab incident bother him going further.

He even threw on Crab Rave, everyone’s favorite meme song to fully embrace the meme. It’s good to see the Smash pro be a good sport about all of this and not let it affect his career moving forward.

When he cracks open the shell of the crab, you can even see his chat spamming his new Crab emote.

He apologized for losing his cool at the tournament

Shortly after everything went down and the clip of him being angry went viral, HungryBox apologized for his actions on Twitter.

“Sorry for losing my temper,” he wrote. “Someone threw a fucking raw crab at me. After a 5 set losers run. Barely missed my head.”

It’s unclear whether or not the crab thrown at him was the same one that was eaten.

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.
